Happy Snowy Winter Day!

Happy Friday, my friends!

We're enjoying a little bit of a blizzard here...woohoo I thought it was a good time to share this card with you,
 along with a few photos I recently took of my yard.

A few months ago I participated in a blog hop over at Milk Coffee
and was delighted to win several digis along with one custom digi.
I gave the girls an idea of what I wanted and they sent me this fabulous image.
It's called "Madeline Warm Coffee" and I just love it.
You can find it in their etsy shop right HERE.

It was the perfect project to use some of my knew dies on!

Materials used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: Milk Coffee - Madeline Warm Coffee,
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Dies: Spellbinders - Curved Rectangles,
Memory Box - Beloved Snowflakes, Snowflake Corner;
Pearls: Liquid Pearls - White Opal.

Now here are a few *frosty* photos for you.

Would anyone like to join me on my lawn swing?

Gorgeous clear blue sky!

My favorite little tree surrounded by bunny tracks.

That big mess of tracks in the snow is from a ginormous flock of Waxwings that were enjoying the berries on our trees.
A few more bunny tracks too!

I hope you're all enjoying the beauty of Winter where you live!
Have a wonderful weekend full of JOY! :o)

Your card is just a delight. I really like it. Your dies were put to very good use and your coloring is terrific. Your yard is gorgeous. We have had about 24 inches of snow in the past two weeks and are expecting more Sunday thru Tuesday of this coming week. It has been very light fluffy snow and has not stayed on the trees which saddens me because I love the look of snow or ice covered trees. I'll just look at your pictures when I want to see that beautiful landscape. Enjoy your weekend.

What a pretty card. Your girl looks toasty warm in her red jacket and blue scarf and mittens. Thanks for sharing your snow photos, they are gorgeous. Thankfully it hasn't snowed here yet. It's pretty to look at, but I don't enjoy driving in it.

That image is gorgeous. You coloured it beautifully and your die cuts are spectacular. I love how they extend beyond the edges of the card.
Love those winter pics. The trees are stunning all frosted up like that.
Blessing hugs,
PS - Thanks for following my new blog. :)

Hmmm???? What is that ginormous fence keeping out? Could it be bears or moose. ;-) I'm imagining those sweet little bunnies hopping around in the snow, dancing around your little snow dusted tree. Maybe Madeline could share some of her coffee with them. hee hee Wonderful card Nancy. Hugs!

What a pretty card! You always pick the sweetest images and then do such a nice job colouring them. I love those Memory Box Dies that you used as well. Your photographs look gorgeous but they do make me cold just to look at them. LOL (I'm almost embarrassed to call myself Canadian anymore because I'm ALWAYS cold!)

The snow is so beautiful, and I am glad you are enjoying it. I love photos of it, but had enough of it in my youth, so don't need to experience it anymore, lol! ;^)
Love your fab card! The image is darling, love your palette & coloring & design! You chose such wonderful die cuts, and I love the added bling, too! :^)
Hugs, Penny
