Snow Day

Hi fellow stampers,

I've been unable to do any blogging for a couple weeks again. Mostly because we took a trip to Portland, OR for Thanksgiving week to visit my sister's family. We had a great time!

Today I have two cards for you. The first uses Karen's SSSC 173 layout and a PI cutie. The second uses Karen's SSSC #172 layout for a birthday for a friend who loves Hawaii.

Here is the card using this weeks sketch:

The color scheme of Certainly Celery and Real Red comes the Dynamic Duos 31.

I changed the circle to an oval, used several Die-namics dies and an SU embossing folder. Her hat and coat are paper pieced. The trim on her hat and boots are filled in with a white gel pen. The rest of her is colored with Copics. The real red button sits on top of a wood veneer snowflake. The snowballs are covered with Stickles to make them icy. 

Here is card number 2:

I got some cool burlap 12 x 12 papers from Paper Source a few weeks ago. I used one of them to make the four squares to go along with the Hawaiian theme for this Birthday card. The patterned paper is retired SU DSP.
