UIT: All About Winter


This week at Use It Tuesday our theme is All About Winter...and boy do I know all about that! I know all about it to the tune of -42F (the coldest I have personally experienced). I can honestly say that seeing temps that low was certainly NOT on my bucket list of 'must dos' but hey, the Northern Lights were and I guess you have to pay in some way to experience such beauty. (Kind of like the pain of eyebrow waxing??!)

Anyway, we would LOVE to have you join us this week! Use your hoarded supplies, link up your creation, and play away! You have until Jan 20th!

This card was particularly fun because DH bought me the PTI Stamps and matching dies last Christmas and they had yet to see ink! I love working with the matchy-matchy stamps/dies they have! Plus, I used up another SU ribbon slide and ribbon from a dusty multi-pack!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Oooo, would love to be sitting and sipping something warm right now, Siohban. I remember those dark Alaska winters and hot drinks were always on the menu! Thanks so much for inviting me to Guest Design on this challenge. I'm loving it.

Gotta love it when you use some of the "brand-new" old stuff. LOL Gosh I am so guilty of that it is no laughing matter. Loving the color combo you put together. Nicely done.

Too cute Siobhan! Love the color combo. You must be wishing for Spring. I have to admit, I'm loving the PTI stamps and matching dies too!

Hi Siobhan,

I just love your teacup card! I was just using my PTI stamps and dies the other day. I too like your color combo.

Oh my gosh your description of the cold and comparing trade-offs (eyebrow waxing), made me laugh. I haven't ever felt -42, but I have felt -35. I feel for you. I love this card. So cute. The color scheme is awesome. I love that blue & green against the dark brown. It really makes it pop and gives it a wow factor.
