Winter in the Air Blog Hop

Looking for the Anything goes blog hop Click Here


Oh the weather outside is frightful, but these projects are so delightful.
Welcome to the ‘Winter’s In The Air’ blog hop.

We have all made projects to warm your heart, and potentially decorate your home, during these snowy months.

You should have came from  Elecia. If you just happened to run across this hop you will want to start at Melanie  to see all the wonderful projects. 

Here is my project that I made.

 I received this cute little guy from a cut swap and just had to use him. I dressed him up a little more and love the way he turned out. 



For the card I used a standard a2 sized card  and added a white cardstock layer that I embossed with the swiss dots cuttlebug folder, I then inked the dots with weathered wood distressing ink.

The blue paper measures around 2 ½” by 3 ½” I just adhered it straight down to the white card stock.
The snowflake paper is 2” by 3 ½” I sprayed it with homemade shimmer spray and with a blue mist.  After allowing it to dry I inked the edges and rounded the corners.

I then used White daisy ink from Close to my heart and Winter punny stamp from My Pink Stamper.


After I let that dry for a long time( because of the white ink) I popped up the snowman on foam tape.and placed him crooked, I think he looks like he is making a snow angel. How funny would that be. hehehe











Here's another look at my card. 



If you comment on everyone’s post you will be entered to win this from Melanie.

 It includes paper, stickers, metal embellies, adhesive, mists, stencils, a journal and more. Be sure to check back on Tuesday, Jan 22 to see who won.
