February Blues

Happy February, one month closer to spring, and boy, am I ready.  Our weather, as I'm sure everyone has been having, is like a yoyo, up and down and down and up.  50+ for one or two days then sub zero with high winds. for 5.  It's just totally crazy here in Missouri but not near as bad as the east coast and north of us. It's snowing like crazy and this is just round 1 of 4 for the next week. Since they are naming winter storms now I'm curious at to what the 3 names will  I can think of a few I'd like to call them but don't dare publish....

Enough chatter about the weather as I'm sure we are all ready for some wonderful spring heat.  Mother Nature will have her way regardless of whether we like it or not.

Our challenge this month at Christmas Cards All Year Round is blue and white, no other colors except hair, skin, fur, feathers, but try to keep everything else blue and white.  There is an OPTION of adding a heart that could be a charm, embellishment, chipboard, etc.  Our sponsor this month is Sassy Design Studios.  You want to be sure and hop on over to the CCAYR blog and see all the wonderful creations by the DT using these cute and sassy images..

I chose the image "Don't Open Till Christmas" and you can get her HERE.  She is colored with Copics.  Skin: E30, 000, 0000, R20;  Hair: E50, 53, 55, 57; Slacks: B91, 93, 95, 97,  Added Diamond Glaze to her eyes and Stardust Stickles to her shirt and the snowflakes.  The flowers are by Kort & Gort, Wild Orchid Crafts, and Prima.  DP is Maja Vintage Frost Basics.  Dies used are: Spellbinder's Nestabilities Majestic Elements, IO Dies Die084-V and IO DIE122-D.

So very glad that you stopped by and hope to see you back again soon.  I'll have some very exciting news to share with you coming later this month.

Love & Hugs, Carol (Granny)
