Wintertime Fun :)

Hello all~

It's been frigid these last few days, here in NY. Brrrrrrrr..... We've even seen a few flakes, but nothing significant to even make a coating on the grass, which I am thankful for...though I *do* love the snow...I'd rather wait until after Thanksgiving if possible.

BUT -- seeing those snowflakes got me wanting to play with Billy & Lily's newest set from Pink Cat Studio.
So Billy & Lily love to go sledding at night...under a starry sky. I wanted to be a little different and use purple, as I'm trying to change my DD's mind about painting her room pink...maybe if I keep using purple, she'll change her mind...(ha ha I could only hope!) There's lots of detail on Billy & Lily...I used white applique on the 'fur' trim. Billy is wearing a suede jacket (it was of course waterproofed...he wouldn't be so foolish!) that was done with my brown velvet fabric pen. The sled is covered in crystal effects, a nice glossy look, but my photo doesn't really capture it.
The stars in the background are Martha Stewart Halloween double sided stickers that I got on clearance last year, perfect for glittering :) Oh, and of course Billy & Lily are popped off the front of the card using a piggy tale. The only downside to these is the shadows when I photograph, but they really add a lot of interest to the cards - and it's great that they flatten down!
Sentiment cut out with one of my new Nestabilities Labels 2 dies (this is the smallest die) and stamped in Dark Chocolate Palette ink from Papertrey.
What was/is your favorite Wintertime activity??? I like to play in the snow with my DD, usually a playful snowball fight....can't wait to hear what yours are.
Thanks for stopping by!!

I love your card Tracy! What a great idea to have them sledding at night. I like the shadow, it really looks like they are popping off of the card. Great job!

This card is adorable! Praying to the Heat Miser is my favorite winter activity. LOL. I do really enjoy watching the kids' joy over snow though.

OH my cuteness! I just love the little dog in the front of the sled. Good luck with the pink room thing, ugh! Gotta go see what else I missed this past week. My hard drive kicked the bucket so I've been out of the loop. -Molly B.
