Warm friends on the coldest days

Hi and welcome to my blog! Have you made a new years resolution yet? I don't usually, probably because I tend to forget them by mid-January!! This year I hope to keep my goal of spending more creative time .... documenting my family , actually making cards ahead of occasions instead of at the last minute and maybe I might even manage to dust off my sewing machine and start last years projects!!!! Here's my first card of 2015 .... it's for the current Friday Mashup challenge:

This week's Mashup Challenge is:

  • Create a project with a "Winter theme". 
  • Create a project  with "Snowflakes". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Winter project with Snowflakes".
I purchased this cute little digi image a few years ago ... the files came with ready to color images and this adorable pre-colored sweet girl and kitty. I uploaded her to my brand new Cricut Explore ( Xmas gift from hubby this year!!) and used the print and cut feature. I love how well it cut all the details ... with no white spaces!! This feature is probably my favorite thing about the Explore , but it will never replace my beloved Silhouette machine! The papers are from a Crate Paper 6X6 mini pad called Bundled Up. I love the pink snowflake paper , actually I love all the papers in this collection... its a perfect collection for winter themed papercrafts and the colors are so much fun to play with!
I pulled out my Bigshot for the hexagon shape( Spellbinders) and the pink snowflake.  I used a sentiment from CC Designs stamps called Winter Chuckles , inked in CTMH Juniper ink. A few buttons , some clear Wink of Stella glitter to the snow and my card is complete!!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
