Penny's challenge....winter scene


Penny's challenge this week is to do a winter scene. When I read that I thought to myself...do I have to?? am I ready for winter?? Absolutely not, but I gave it the old college try and this is what I came up with. This is a very old stamp that I never use cause to be honest with you I don't think it's all that impressive and I don't know why I bought it in the first place. I guess the company that made it wasn't that proud of it either because it doesn't show a name...oops! in very tiny print I just found PSX. Anyway, just stamp and use a bit of colored pencils and then add some glitter glue by Stickles and you're almost there. I did some fancy schmansy punched corners, a bit of $1 bin ribbon and a snowflake by SU and I'm done. I'd rather think of heading to my place in Florida on the beach where I can lay in the sun in my bikini and have all the old men drooling at the sight of me...But since I don't have a place on the beach in Florida or anywhere else nice and warm I guess I'll have the snowblower checked out and get it ready for my winter scene instead. Happy Thursday to you all.

Hey! We can all dream can't we? I have a beach-front property in Hawaii too (in my mind) and I retreat there whenever the cold gets to me :)
Seriously, your card is very pretty, and I love the snowflake accent! Snow?! AACK!! Not ready for it yet!!!

Dang Pat I was so ready to join you at your Florida beach house. The older I get the less well I do in the cold. But the good news is that I get to put on lots more baggy clothes so no one can see how much weight I've gained! lol Yeah.. I was gonna join you Florida but not with a bikini. Haven't worn one of those for 40 years!! lol

But the winter scene is beautiful, anyway, and I love the sparklies that you added to it.

I happen to like it! You know what it reminds me of? Mark and Rashelle's cabin in the woods. I think there are more bears than deer but.... hey... it works! :-) Love the sparkle you added -- just like the glistening snow!
