FTTC94 Let it Snow!

Happy Tuesday!!!

I hate to say it but it is way tooooo warm here in Georgia for some snow. Our temperatures are in the upper 70's and today it suppose to be in the low 80's. Please don't hate me....LOL!!! On the flip side, we never really have that *holiday* feeling around here because the temperatures are too warm. I'm not sure which way I like it better!?!

I'm enjoying my few days off so far...I took Rebecca and Mimi to see *Disney on Ice* on Sunday!!! They loved it!!! With Thanksgiving celebrations in a few days I have lots to do and I want my house to be sparkly clean :) !!! So somewhere in between all the cleaning I found some time to make my card for today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC94! Cindy is our host today and she is challenging us to an awesome Sketch!!! As always, you can change the dimensions to your liking, but at the end it still should look like the Sketch.


I created a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card to fit my super cute snowman image from the Flouirshes Warm Winter Wishes Set.




The colors for my card were inspired by this weeks CR84FN5.


The DP in the background is from the SU Deck the Halls Collection. I also added some snowflake embossing with the SU Northern Flurry Folder. The snowflurries and the snowman were inked in Memento Black and colored with these Copic Markers ~ C2, E27, E35, E37, YR0000, R37 and YR07. The edges were ink distressed. The card was also embellished with some Brown Crochet Ribbon and some Brown Satin Ribbon. At last I added a Gold Beaded Cord, a matching Red Button and lots of Dazzling Diamond Glitter.

Now it's time to hop on over to my fabbo team mates for their take on this weeks Sketch ~ Barbara, Betty (will be a bit late), Cindy, Dee and Maki's !!!

Thank you for stopping by today. Have fun making a card and I'll see you soon!!! Hugs ~S~

Silke, I love that you went with brown with this snowman rather than the typical blues. The glitter is just like the sun hitting hard packed snow. I've been busy cleaning too. After a couple of hours today, the house should be ready so that tomorrow I can begin cooking. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
