Winter Wonderland in Pinks and Browns


Whew it's been one of those weeks where I feel like I have been chasing my tail and never ever really catching it.
Today is just as crazy as I am making cookies for the grand kids for tonight and trying to get things ready for when they all arrive. We have a crafty night planned, as the boys are going to be down in my craft room making some fun Halloween projects to give to their teachers and friends. So that meant I had to kid proof my craft room the best I could and get a table set up and ready for the five of them. But it will be lots of fun for all of us, as they do enjoy doing things like this with me.

OK on to today's card and new challenge at Fussy & Fancy challenge blog. Fabulous projects everyone shared from from our last challenge, be sure to watch for the winners to be announced.
This week (reminder our challenges run for a two week time frame) we are getting ourselves geared up for the winter months ahead and we want to see some of your wonderful Winter Wonderland creations.

I have been collecting Magnolia card kits, as I joined a few card kit swaps on SCS and Yahoo Groups so I rummaged through my collection, looking for a kit that would work with our challenge theme and discovered this image and designer paper kit that was put together by Kathy Curry. I used the current sketch from Just Magnolia challenge #77 for my layout tweaking it a tad with using a oval nesties instead of a circle. My base is PTI chocolate, then layered with SU Pretty in Pink, I colored her up with Copics and added fun flock for the fur on her coat and hat, Paisley folder with the SU Pretty In Pink card stock. Flowers are from Prima, MS leaf  and sentiment punch, Velvet ribbon from my ribbon drawer, Crystal snowflakes found in my collection and then finished with sentiment from a TGF set.
Stop on over to the Fussy and Fancy challenge blog as the design team has some amazing creations to help get you inspired. Hope you join us this week
