Flakes

Happy Monday!
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!  We did a whole lot of nothing, which is always nice!  Still trying to get over this head cold that has plagued us both for a few weeks now...not fun at all!

Before I get to my DT creation, I wanted to remind you of the different ways you can follow my little blog here!  You can follow on Facebook, Bloglovin, via the little Google Friend Connect option over there on the right, or you can follow my Pinterest page!  I'd love to have you stick around!!

So on to my creation for this week.  Our new challenge starting today at Paper Makeup is to Use Your Scraps!  Yes!!  Who doesn't have a mile high pile of scraps to use up?  I know I do!  I try and try to use them up but somehow I always end up making more!
I figured since snow season is right around the corner, that I'd make something appropriate for that.  I have all sorts of snowflake paper scraps so I decided to try and make a little gradual snowfall scene.  I used the darkest snowflake paper on top and then gradually lightened it up as the snow fell.  I cut out a few snow drifts and inked them with some blue ink.  It's a little darker than I wanted, but it's about the only blue ink pad I have that still works well enough for this.  So I rolled with it :)

I printed off my snowman from the Snow Happy set from Paper Makeup and colored him in with my colored pencils.  I also printed off the fun sentiment - All my friends are flakes - and cut that out in a scallop frame.

To help tie in the orangish yellow on his scarf, I used some orange twine across the top and made a bow to tuck the sentiment under.  I finished everything off with a few touches of my new Wink of Stella glitter pen so things sparkled :)

Such a fun card!  I hope you will join us this week!  Pull out your scraps and use a digi on your project!!  Can't wait to see what you create!! Oh and while your at the challenge blog, welcome our new teammate Marsha!!  So happy she has joined us!! <3
