Happy Winter

Well, while we haven't really seen any snow fall here in Montreal yet, winter is definitely here.  Other than this past weekend, it's been below freezing pretty consistently.  Just wish the gorgeous white stuff would start flying.

Our new challenge starting today at Tuesday Throwdown is Snowbirds!  I always love watching the birds flutter around in the snow.  I remember when I was younger, trudging out in waist high snow to fill the bird feeders and waiting patiently with a hand full of bird seed to see if one of them would hop down and eat from my hand.  It didn't happen very often, but it was so exciting when it did!

The sponsor for this week is MyGrafico.  They always provide us with such adorable images, and this week is no exception.
I just love this cute little penguin in his hat and scarf.  My original plan was to include an igloo behind him and have a couple more birdies in the scene, but it didn't fit too well together so I just stuck with the one.  I clear embossed the snowflakes and then used some cotton balls with my ink pads to shade out the sky.  Cut a few snow drifts and covered the edges with some Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

I hope you will join us this week for our Snowbirds challenge!!  Be sure to check out the rest of the design teams creations, they are adorable!!
