Out My Front Door

cardinals 2-8-10

I woke up to a beautiful hoar frost, blue sky, sunshine and 5 degrees! Brrrrrrr, but gorgeous!

And might as well share a card I did this morning as long as I'm blogging...right?! lol

TLC259 It Has A Song It's a combo challenge, the technique for today on Splitcoast... Frosted Window, that Holly is so clever! and The Shining Light Challenge from Our Daily Bread designs. The frosted window is done by stamping on cardstock..., coloring your image, stamping again on vellum and coloring with lighter colors, then popping the vellum up over the cardstock image with dimensionals. (it looks better irl, trust me! lol)

The card is in the mail, on its way to hopefully bring some cheer to a friend of a friend.

stamps: sing for joy, he watches me- our daily bread designs
ink: tuxedo black
paper: gp white, vellum, generic black, basic grey nook & pantry, prism blush red dark
other: copics, spellbinders labels, scrap essentials clear bubble, the paper studio border punch, mounting tape

Enjoy your day where ever you are...

we're bracing for...

wait for it ...

MORE SNOW!! YIPPPEEEEE!!! Could get up to 8 more inches! Yeah, I'm ecstatic!

Thanks for stopping!

Oh, Dawn! Both your photographs AND your card are stunning! I've never seen a hoar frost up-close-and-personal, so I appreciate your pics. BTW, these new ODB stamps are gorgeous. They are definitely on my wish list.
