Winter Wishes and A DT Farewell

The year is coming to an end, and we're all preparing to welcome in 2011. And with a new year, comes change. Time for change and new experiences. With that being said, I'm sad to say that my time with Stamping Dragon Designs has come to an end. I want to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to Janette, from Stamping Dragon, for giving me the wonderful experience of working with her, and taking the chance on me, to on my first design team. I appreciate everything you have done. I have enjoyed, so much, working with her, and the rest of the DT members, past and present. I will take away from this experience so many wonderful memories. Don't worry, girls, I will be stopping by your blogs to visit from time to time, and I hope you'll all do the same. Don't be surprised if you see me playing along with your challenges over at Stamping With The

Today is a new challenge over at Dragon, and also my last card for this awesome Design Team of wonderful ladies. This round, we want to see a project using your favorite Winter Color. We're being sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads. She is offering a fab prize-- 5 images of the winner's choice! This is an awesome prize, so be sure you play along for your chance to win!

For my card, I used the sketch at Truly Scrumptious. The image was provided by Di's Digi Downloads and is colored with Promarkers. Obviously, my favorite winter colors right now are red & green, since I'm still feeling a little bit like Christmas. I added glitter and sparkle using a clearstar gelly roll pen. It's winter, and so many of us have lots and lots of snow! And we have to have sparkle, if we have snow! The papers and red ribbon are from my stash, and the sentiment is computer generated.

I made this card for my friend Susie. We met in one of those old RPG games years ago and are still friends.

While I have you here, I want to tell you that the Creative Cowgirls are having a blog hop with Blog candy!

  18. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 500 so far !

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
