Winter fun

Stamps: 2-2164E Ice Skates, 9-8581B Ice Day, 6-2168A Mini Flake
Papers: Woodgrain cut to 4-bar size, Cranberry

Wow, sorry, I really have to apologize for the quality of this picture. It's a gray, foggy morning in the PNW, although the weatherman promises it will be better later. Maybe I can retake this pic when the sun comes out! Sheesh!

Anyway, I love how this mini flake shows up so well against the woodgrain paper. I used my ColorBox Snow White pigment pad along with some white detail embossing powder and shazowie! Then I added little light blue micro twinkle dots in the centers of the snowflakes just for a little added sparkle. What a fun winter card to send to a friend!

I'm happy to say I'm feeling a little better today. I can actually breathe through my nose!! And I'm not coughing so much, either. The chest tightness could get a little better before I call myself well but I don't think I'll have to use the nebulizer for my asthma again. Whew! It's so noisy! My little dog Ginger barks at it like it's going to come get her or something. LOL
