Good afternoon! We've had another 8" of snow in Western New York! I'm so happy to have the day off!
I've made bread and rolls for tomorrow, worked on laundry and stamped! Unfortunately, this card is all I've completed! Wish they didn't take me so long!
Anyway, I tried 2 photos to see which one is closer to real life. Neither one has exactly the look of the card, but do they ever?
On with the details! The card base is Papertrey Ink's ocean Tides, the darker layers are Not Quite Navy, The dp is Cosmo Cricket (oh, Joy) and My Mind's Eye. Tilda skiing is stamped on Papertrey Ink's vintage Cream and colored with copics. The snowflakes stamped on the card base are also made by Magnolia and I got both stamps at the Magnolia-licious store.

The ribbon is from papertrey as is the sentiment in the hodge podge hardware from SU. The snowflakes are punched, then sponges to dirty them up, then covered with Crystal Effects and dipped in Diamond Dust Glitter. These were shamelessly stolen right from Anna Wight who has done some fantastic things with them! Thanks, Anna! I used a spica silver pen on the boots and on the ski pole round thingies. Edges are sponged with Adirondack Latte and Distress Ink Antique Linen.
Here are the colors I used:
Face E00, Eo0, R20 and Rv42
Blues: BG10, Bg72, BG09 (my favorites!)
Reds R46 and R59
Browns: E53, E31, E33, E35, E37 and E29
Greys for poles: W-3, W-5 and W-7
I have been given some VERY NICE awards (on my blog) lately! Thanks to Tanja and Suzy, such wonderful artists! I have no idea how to add the little banner to my blog. If I did I would have a couple for the companies I've designed cards for, but alas it still remains a mystery to me. Suzanne Dean (love her!) sent me some directions that I have yet to find time to try. I promise I will see what I can do to get the banner going and tag some other blogs. I DO appreciate these fine women picking my feeble little blog to mention! THANK YOU!
Off to clean up the area and maybe stamp some more! Thanks for stopping in!
