Winter friends

I am on a roll. I haven't made this many cards in a row in a long time. Feels good. Love being creative.

Here is my first one. The image is from wild rose studio. The words and heart are from some old stamps that I have in my collection. The image is colored with prisma color pencils. The paper is from basic grey. The falling snow is fun flock. The stars are stickles. The die cuts have stickles added. I had to get this image because my 22 yo son loves polar bears. I am going to send him this card for Valentine's Day.

On to the next.



It is winter and I wanted to make a card for some friends and this Magnolia image seemed perfect. I like to give hugs to  my friends. Tilda and Snowy are colored with copics. The paper is from basic grey. The white snowflakes are brads from Making Memoires. The strips of snowflakes are from the basic grey collection matching the paper. I was going to put a pink bow on the card but decided it was too much pink so the aqua bow one. 

Here is the left side of the inside of the card.
The words are from Whipper Snapper and I used the mini snowy hugs for the image.

And the other side.
Hope you enjoyed my creations.

I am entering this in the sweet stamping pixies snowflake challenge here.
Thank you for the comments you make. They really mean a lot.
