I have to say making this card in July was a welcome break to this hot weather we've been having. I, for one, am looking forward to the temperature dropping a bit! I'm ready to turn off the air conditioning and open the windows and get some fresh air!
The whole time I was making this card, I had the song running through my head...
♪♫♫♪ "Oh, the weather outside it frightful, but the fire is so delightful
and since we've no place to go, Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!♫♪♪♫
I must say it cooled me off a bit (even if my boys looked at me like I had completely lost my mind!)
This card is based on this week's Stampendous Saturday Sketch Challenge. I had already completed 3 cards to submit for the challenge and as I was cleaning up the mess that naturally occurs while I am busy creating, I ran across this stamp set and the card immediately came together in my head. I love it when that happens! One component of the sketch was to have three of something in one corner, the "let it snow" stamp perfectly fit the bill! Voila!
I think pink and blue in bright tones are a crisp combination. And I think Changito is secure enough to use a pink-handled shovel! It may be hard to see in this photo, but I used Liquid Applique on the snow drifts. What fun!
Take a look at this week's sketch and see what you can come up with for the challenge, it's really a lot of fun....and a good reason to get inky today!
