Winter Cheer!

As if we haven't had enough snow and "Winter Cheer" here in Southern Michigan already, My Husband and I will be traveling soon to Michigan's Upper Peninsula to visit family and go snowmobiling.   No matter how bad we think we've had it here, there's always a ton more snow there.  We've seen snow piles on the side of the road as high at 5 feet.   Although I'm bummed that I won't be snowmobiling this year (something tells me pregnancy and snowmobiling just don't mix) I'm looking forward to driving to all of our favorite snowmobile places and meeting our family of snowmobilers at each location.  One of my favorite places is going to Tahquamenon Falls.  Here's what they looked like when we were there last February.  A lot different from the unfrozen pics in the link, huh?!?!

Here's a card I recently made that was inspired by all of the snow we've gotten here lately, and the excitement of getting to go up North soon.  Do you DRS Designs fans recognize this image?  The Ice Skates image (373H) was one of their favorites that they recently retired and brought back due to popular demand!

I colored the skates with Copic Markers, matted it with purple cardstock and added 2 dark blue snowflake brads to the left side of the image.  I created the background by stamping the Interlocking Snowflake background (015H) with dark blue ink.  I matted this panel with dark blue cardstock that was decorated with a border punch, and adhered it to a purple A2 cardstock base.  The Snowflakes and Winter Cheer sentiment (135G) was a bit too tall for the bottom of the card, so I cut it into 2 parts between the words 'friendship' and 'and' so that I could move the bottom portion of the sentiment a bit to the right to make it fit.  A fun blue bow finished off this card nicely.

I know after this trip up North, I will be plenty done with the snow and Old Man Winter.  If you, too are getting that feeling, make sure to check out DRS Designs new St. Patty's Day and Easter designs on their New Release page.  They'll have you itchin' for Spring in no time! Until next time...
