I love this cozy time of year, even though there's not a speck of snow, the sun is shining brightly, no clouds in the sky, and the grass is still green. I'm waiting for the snow to fall and for a fresh blanket of white to spread all around us. Call me crazy, but I love glistening, powdery, crunchy, snow as it's something I grew up with, but not something that happens too often here.
This month, Freckled Fawn has the most beautiful, serene color challenge up on the blog....it's a favorite of mine and I was happy to get a chance to create something. I used Freckled Fawn's White on Grey Lace washi tape, a Maya Road chipboard snowflake that I painted, sanded, and coated with glitter, a Maya Road vintage Raspberry Bead, a Martha Stewart Kraft tag, and Melissa Frances flowers.
I also used Papertrey Ink vellum to die cut an envelope using the Tiny Envelope die and a border across the bottom, combined with Kraft cardstock using the Heart Border die. The sentiment was stamped using the 2009 Holiday Tag collection. Paper is from My Mind's Eye and Basic Grey and the scrunched seam binding is from Paper Sweeties.
I'm busy working on Christmas cottages today and will be back to show you photos as soon as I'm done.
