Today starts the new Facebook Challenge in The East Wind Group with the theme of (well, check the title of this post) Seems like there's been all sorts of screwy weather going on across the country this month, eh? Hope yours isn't too bad, wherever you are. To be honest, I really miss the cold and snow around Christmas time, but I hear the Chicago area has in some cases been warmer than here in California. What gives? My card reflects the winters of my childhood, using the adorable image "baby, it's cold outside".
Here's the dimensional shot. The card is cut with my Spellbinder's Grand Labels One. The snow flakes are from...hmmm...I can't find the die, and it would be no big surprise if you could see my disastrous craft room. Oh wait, I seem to remember i.o. (Impression Obsession?). The skates are by Joy Crafts and inked with Tumbled Glass Distress. I took lessons as a child and have so many fond memories of Saturday father/daughter outings with my friend Susie and her dad, too. This holiday card was made especially for my LONG time hair stylist Debbie, who also skated as a child. Christmas is a wonderful time to walk down memory lane, eh? Anyway, the sentiment is computer generated and there ya go.
Please pop by The East Wind FB Group (now public, so go take a peek) to see more inspiration for the challenge by the FB team and don't forget the Blog Challenge which runs through December 25th.
