Smeared and Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas Day 3 and Ike's World It Feels Like Winter Challenge


What a difference a day makes.  Two days ago we were still in the high 60's and today...BBBRRR...  Welcome to Day 3 of the 12 Days of Creepmas sponsored by the Smeared and Smudged forum.  I had another project planned for today, but the change in the weather and the fact that I've been wanting to play in my HDH DT sister Ike's World Challenge made me switch gears.  The current challenge is there is It Feels Like Winter (Yup, it sure does!) and the fact that Ike has some FABULOUS images that work well with the whole Creepmas theme resulted in this card. (BTW, she does beautiful traditional images of all sorts as well.  Follow that Fabulous images link).


This gorgeous gal is Sinful Beauty.  She's colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped within a fab Memory Box die cut snowflake concoction.  Obviously she packs her own heat.


I've made a tent card with all sorts of frosty elements including glittered icicles from an MS punch, another Memory Box hanging snowflake die with bow, some acrylic glittered snowflakes and a computer generated sentiment (Warm Winter Wishes) on a Spellbinders fancy label.  Have to say I'm feeling warmer already.  Now off you go to Violent Kittie but if you get lost, please check the sidebar for the full Blog Roll.

I'm also entering this in the Left of Center Challenge using the LOC theme and SweetPea Stampers "It's Cold Outside".
