Winter Cards

Julie has been up to her ears in Winter in her home state of Minnesota, so she decided to embrace it with these beautiful cards in tribute to old man Winter.

May Your Day....: Bazzill cardstock, My Minds Eye patterned paper, AC Cardstock, Stampin' Up ticket punch, paper distressor, vintage ric rac, pop up foam adhesive, brad from Oriental Trading Company.

We're Having Snow Much Fun!: AC cardstock, unknow snowflake pattern paper, Pink Paislee, Melissa Frances Rub on, Color Box ink, Vintage Simplicity pattern images, Martha Stewart Baker's Twine.

*I had fun making this Winter card. A handmade card goes a long way in the hustle and bustle of life to show someone that you have really thought about them. It might make their day! I love Vintage patterns so when I saw these Winter cuties, I knew I needed to use them. I tore the Pink Paislee paper to try and add a bit of "snow hills" to the card. I made the little boy slide down the hill! I wanted some snowflakes on the card, but I wasn't liking any of my punches. So, I decided to stitch them on using Martha Stewart Baker's Twine.

Thanks Julie for what I think are two of my favorites from you!

And thank you bloggers for stopping by today and I hope your creative ideas are flowing about Alice and her friends in Wonderland!
