CWC Challenge Winter Warmies

Hi Everyone!

I saw the challenge over at Cooking with Cricut and it looked so fun! Its a winter warmies challenge. The challenge this week should be all about the way we keep warm during these cold days. From mittens and scarves to Hot Cocoa and more! There isn't one thing in our house that gets more use in the winter than my fireplace. I created this card to look just like my fireplace.  DIY tip.... Last year I painted some old black frames (just the frame no glass) and hung some ornaments in them. This is such an EASY Holiday decor that looks pretty.  You can use old ornaments of different sizes and paint and glitter them, add bows, ribbons, etc... It's a fun project,
OK back to the card, most of the images came from the Joys of the season cartridge and Jolly Holidays. All of it was designed on my gypsy for sizing purposes. The paper was all scraps (yay for me).  Just a fun little card....

Hope you all have a great night and please stop by tomorrow for my 3rd week of giveaways. It's another one of my favorite things!!

Well aren't you just bursting with amazingness, as always? This is so lovely! I love that it was inspired by your real life memories.. and it was beyond brilliant to use that background paper! The entire card is aglow with the warmth of a crackling fire! :o) Beautiful replications of your home decor items (which I'm SO doing next year). The sparkle throughout is perfect. This is beautiful, my friend. :o)

Great card, Shelly! I love to create "scenes" like this and did a similar one at Christmas time as a two page layout for my DD. Thanks for linking up to our "Winter Warmies" challenge at Cooking With Cricut this week.
