Yes, it's still winter!

Happy Monday morning! I took a few days off from crafting and boy am I ready to get stamping again! I missed soooo many challenges but I also found some new ones! I'll be sharing those with you this week! Here's a card I whipped up this morning. The other week I saw this digital background over on Art Creations and have been wanting to use it. The scalloped circle is digital paper from Carrie Stephens. The image is Sugarpea from CC Designs, isn't she sweet, she's colored with oil pastels and prisma pencils.

I added embossing paste to the snow, snowballs and her hat puffball for texture.
I made a little tag with a warm winter sentiment because we're having a very blustery day, reminding us it's still winter, I guess! The ladies at OCC challenged us to use a tag on our projects this week. eta...I just checked DRSdesigns challenge for today and it's also tags!
I just love blue & green together, don't you?!
We enjoyed our multiple gatherings with friends these past few days...cooking feasts and just talking for hours. Over the winter, after the holidays, it seems like we don't have as many gathering, so this was wonderful! Prayers to all for a happy day! Blessings!
*NOTE...I'll be catching up on everyone's blogs for the last few days-I want to see what you've been up to, so put a pot of tea on...I'll be stoppin' by!
