We survived winter!
All 2 days of it.
We had some absolutely gorgeous 60* weather for a day or two,
most of Miami bundled up in winter jackets, scarves, hats and
- yep, even snow boots!
I couldn't help but chuckle as I donned my short sleeves and capris,
soaking up every single bit of that chilliness ♥
It's the 9th of the month, which means the 3 Musketeers are back!
We are a trio of friends that swap an image every month,
and this month I was up as hostess :)
I knew wanted to send out an image that reflects winter and snow,
and A Snowman's Soul by Lil Inker Designs stole my heart when I saw it.
It reflects not only how much I long for snowy days,
but the memories of my brother and I romping in the snow for hours!
You may remember I posted a matching Fall themed card
with these cute vintage kids: Pumpkins
Such a darling image ♥
While I was not intending to create a card using terracotta,
my card took an adventurous direction!
My 11 year old son and I play this little game
where he will select 3 colors of his chosing,
whether it be sheets of cardstock, buttons, etc.
Sometimes they are spot on, sometimes they are a bit .... 'out there'!
Today is a terracotta/teal/brass combo,
and I'm actually kinda digging it now that it's done ~ LOL!
Be sure to check out Barb and Jeanette's blogs
to see what they've created with this identical image!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings!

So adorable. Yes, I love the colors. Maybe not wintery, but they seem to really fit the image and it looks great! I do notice that there is no button on this card. LOL! A first for me - not seeing one on your cards. Sending wishes for a Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
