Snow globe challenge!

Wow...woke up to a very chilly Friday here in Ontario, Canada! I think we were spoiled the last couple of days with very nice winter temperatures! Darn...just a reminder that winter is still here! I am so sorry about the lack of posts this week...it has been quite a busy week with the kids! No time to create much. Over at All that Scraps weekly Wednesday challenge, they have a challenge for us to create a snow globe. How could you not with the kind of weather we are having! Here is a turtorial for making these little cute snowglobes...not to hard at all!

I used my kraft cardstock for the background, a magnolia fence, and cute little Nora from C.C. Designs. I can hardly wait to start making some spring cards using the new Spring Kit from C.C. Designs! Hope you are all keeping very warm wherever you are....and those that visit my blog from the warmer parts of the world...bring us that wonderful warmth we so need here!!!

  3. This is adorable!!! Your snowglobe is fantastic and your images are coloured wonderfully!! We are right there with you with the arctic chill!! It went from a comfy 50 degrees farenheit to 20 degrees and 4 inches of snow, yarg!!! It is pretty to look at, not so fun to drive to work in...
    Stay Warm,

  14. What a cutie! Love the snow glitter on the top! I hope you get some nice spring weather soon! I'd gladly send you all the sun you want if I could. At the moment it is VERY gray outside and we are hoping for rain! We need it badly, we are in a drought... Keep smiling through the cold, I send hugs!!! Aloha, J:)
