Jesus is the Reason for the Season Blog Hop

Good morning, my friends! Happy Thursday to you... Has your week flown by as fast as mine has? I've had some fun shopping this week, but also had a dreaded dentist appointment that I kept putting off until my broken tooth started hurting. Somehow that ends procrastination pretty quickly lol! So here we are on Thursday already...

I've been visiting a few of you at a time when I get the chance, and many of you are saying how cold it is. Some of you are even having snow! I am sitting here once again with my puppy dog heater, all warm and cozy... but when I poke my nose out from under the ribbon and paper, you are absolutely right - it's downright f-f-f-freezin'!!!

Well, I say that IF you have to be in the cold, you should at least have fun while you're in it! I've made this fun and freezin' cold card using I Got Your Back by Victoria Case for SCACD Winter Hearts and Hugs Set. Doesn't it just make you smile? It cracks me up! I LOVE it!!!

She's having such a wonderful time sledding down the snowy slope with that cute lil' penguin holding on lol! Admit it... it made you giggle, didn't it? Even if it wasn't an out loud giggle, your insides were cracking up, huh? huh? huh?

Here you can see a close up of the sparkly swirls. I used my Cricut to cut them out of acetate, then covered them with Viva Decor Transparent Gloss Gel and sprinkled Glamour Dust on top! I used this same technique for the snowflakes, then added a beautiful rhinestone in the center. Oh so easy to make with fabulous products!

This oh so fun image is colored with my fave copics: Hair - E49 E59 E25 E53; Skin - E11 E21 E00 R20; Clothing - BG18 BG13 BG11 BG10; Scarf and Mittens - R39 R37 R35; Sled - E29 E27 E25/C5 C1; Penguin - C9 C7 C5 C3 C1. To keep her ears warm, I've covered her ear muffs with Sugar Sparkly Fluff! To keep in style while having fun, she's also wearing some bling-y accessories which was easily created with stickles.

The Christmas papers are Memory Box Tinsel Collection. I love Memory Box papers, they are such good quality and come in lots of great patterns! This collection, as well as others are on SALE right now. Better get yours while they're still in stock!

Once again, I've created the snow scene using Polar White Flower Soft. You already know how much I LOVE to use this for snow!!! I'm sure that you'll be seeing this again and again and again hee hee!
