Hi, There!
I guess I have to say winter is here as I dragged out my winter jacket for work this week!!!  BRRRR!  Gloves, hat and scraf and I was toasty warm for my lunch time walk!  Now little Sofia here looks all bundled up too with her bright red and green hat, mittens, and scarf.  I used this image to make a shaker card.  There is acetate in the window pane and I put in some snowflake and micro bead confetti.  Fun to shake the card and see it all roll around.  I used a few die cuts on this one.  My new Snowflake Corner (shaded with blue), also new Beloved Stars die but I put snowflakes where the stars are and I used the large Madison Window to make the shaker part.  This took time to put together but was worth it for the fun of it all!!  Till next time, Stay warm,  Hugs ~  CaroleAnn
