SheepSki Designs: Winter Wonderland


When it snows
Ain't it thrilling
Though your nose gets a chilling
We'll frolic and play
The Eskimo way
Walking in a winter wonderland

Hi there!

Today starts a new monthly challenge on the SheepSki Designs Challenge Blog and this month our challenge theme is “Favorite Things!”

One of my favorite things is Winter. I live in an area of the Southwest that does have snow etc., but not exactly where I live! So I love to imagine what it would be like to build a snowman in my front yard and to experience a White Christmas, at least once!

For my card I am using Winter Warmer - image no 183, found HERE in the Etsy Shop. This is such a great image and can be used for a variety of cool weather occasions.

Glitter Glue was touched about in her hair to give a look of “frost”




Supplies
  • Image: Winter Warmer - image no 183
  • Alcohol markers: Copics & ProMarkers

Cards for Little Hearts Winter Card Drive: Happy Ho Ho Ho

Winter allows us to wrap up in the comforting scarf of healing, but we must slow down to allow its magic. ~Terri Guillemets, "The warmth & stillness," 2009

Good morning!
I am here to share one of the cards I made for the 2019 Winter card drive for Cards for Little Hearts which starts October 1st and ends November 1st.

Cards for Little Hearts is a global card drive, comprised of crafters dedicated to bringing smiles, hope and encouragement to as many children with congenital heart disease as possible by providing heart center staff with handmade cards that are given to patients during their hospitalization.

Please read the guideline page located on the Cards for Little Hearts website (HERE) for important guidelines prior to making and sending in your cards. You can also find additional helpful resources on the FAQs page and a Sentiments List. There is also a Gallery page if you need some inspiration.


Supplies

  • Cardstock: American Crafts, Scrap bin, Stampin Up!, The Paper Studio (base)
  • Design Paper: Unknown
  • Dies: Animals Dress Ups by Sizzix, Mustache by Quickutz
  • Ink: Black Sharpie, Memories India Ink
  • Stamps: HoHoHo Holidays from Close to My Heart

I encourage you to please get children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews or even your Sunday School class involved. The children always love to receive cards made by other children!
