Winter Hills




Happy Saturday and the night we turn back the clocks... I must confess that I am not a big fan of the short days of winter, but I do love using snowy scenes for Christmas cards.  This one is perfect for a friend who owns a home in Garrett County, Maryland where they received 2-3 feet of snow as a results of Hurricane Sandy.  Yikes!!!

Now don't be shocked, but I actually did some stamping -- this snowy scene is from Papertrey Ink's Winter Hills set.  I used Copics for coloring, and added a touch of pastels to the sky and dots of glitter for snow.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Fairy Tale Challenge #53 -- Monochrome with Dies and Punches

So glad you were able to stop by for a visit... thanks so much and have a great day!
