Yes...I'm Ready For Winter!

Hello, my friends!
I took a little time to play today and made a fun page. This page is for the Anything Goes Challenge over at Jellypark. I haven't played with them for a long time and was happy to finally get a chance!

I've created an 8" page that will be going into a Winter/Christmas album that I'm making. I think this just might be the first page. The sweet image I used is "girl in winter coat hat and gloves" and can be found in the Jellypark Shop HERE. I believe I won this image in a previous challenge. I've layered some papers, used some punches, and even pulled out the decorative scissors to cut the snow. I added some inking and the sparkled everything up with stickles. 

The leaves on our trees have been incredibly beautiful this year. Today a big wind blew through and some of the trees are almost bare. I say when the pretty leaves are gone then it's time for winter, and that sparkling blanket of white! I might have a bit of a wait though since it's been 22 degrees Celcius. 

What about you? Are you ready for winter? :o)

  21. Not ready yet Nancy, but that is why I live in the southern part of the states. Lol. But your card makes me think about it and Christmas. Beautiful my friend.

  22. I'm not ready for real snow yet Nancy but could look at your beautiful page anytime ! The papers are lovely and your colouring compliments them beautifully! The snowflake punch is so pretty !

  23. Details, details, so full of details! This is one fun card to look at. How in the world do you get such a nice white border around the image of the girl you fussy cut?!???

    Speaking of the girl...and I did. She is so cute. Looks like she the winter herald running through the town gleeful in the snow :D

    I love this card. Did I already say that? Well, it is worth repeating. This is just so totally COOL. All your layers and the sparkly bits. AWESOME.

    Love you - Leslie
