I hope you had a great holiday - things are getting back to normal here. My son will be back to school on Monday and we can settle into our normal routine. We've been staying up way to late every night, and he's been sleeping away his days. Me? I'm still up at my normal time - hard to fight with that internal alarm clock! That's ok - we've enjoyed our holiday - did some shopping, watched lots of movies, and ate way too much junk food!
Today I'm playing along with the Play Date Cafe. I saw the challenge colors and knew I had to play. I love this color combination. I wanted to make something snowy - we haven't had enough to break out the shovels for this year - just a light dusting on the ground and in the air.
I thought this little snow family would look wonderful inside a snow globe. I made one by cutting three rings from foam and taping them all together. I topped the stack with a circle of transparency and cut a frame for the top to finish it off. I added sequins, "snow", and beads to the inside to make a shaker/snowglobe.
The paper is from two new collections from Basic Grey called Fact (ledger paper, graphs, geometric patterns numbers) and Fiction (flowers and designs) that coordinate together beautifully. Here's my finished card.
Thanks for stopping by for a look. I hope you find some time to play! Maybe I'll see you over at the Play Date Cafe Challenge!
