Frosty Mornings


Hello Friends

I have been feeling really low lately. I have a combination of the winter blues and feeling homesick blah! We have been getting snow lots of snow here in upstate NY. I am so tired of  winter and being stuck inside. I am from Scotland where our winters are so much milder. You can still function and get out and about in winter time.

I have not been in the mood to craft either, but I had a sudden burst of energy to make something last night. So I wanted to make something that would reflect how I was feeling. This card captures that perfectly. When I step outside first thing in the morning. The snow is swirling all around and the howling wind blows right through you brrrrrr!!!

 I had the perfect stamp in mind for that too. This girl stamp from the What Lies Within KOM. Her hair blowing in the wind was perfect. I went with kraft and white for my colour scheme and some vellum. I also used some snow patterned kraft card and corrugated card to create all of the layers. The sentiment is from Frosty Mornings Lots Of Snow Itty Bitty stamp.

I hope you like my card thanks so much for stopping by!!! I am away to get a hot cup of tea and watch some more snow fall outside my window.

Well rest assure Spring IS on it's way ... just going to take a little more time! Your card is AMAZING and just GORGEOUS! I gasp when your page opened ... what a creative piece! Gosh if this is what you create when you're not really feeling crafty ... WOW I need to come back to see what you create when the weather clears! LOL!
