3M: Baby, it's cold outside!

Hi friends!

Oh I wish it were cold outside!
Snow!  Icicles!  Winter wonderland!  
Yes, please!

It's actually pretty HOT here.
Our Miami "cold front" sweater-wearing weather
 in the 40's lasted 3 days!
But it was nice while it lasted :)

Today is the day the 3 Musketeers (that's Barb, Jeanette and I)
post our cards to our blogs with the same stamped image.
This card group was the creation of Jeanette 
and she invited Barb and I to join in!
The hostesses this month was Barb 
and she chose "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Taylored Expressions.

I'll admit - this image stumped me!
It's rather small to be a focal point of a card
and I also wasn't sure how to make it fit into a scene.


My son was chillin' on the couch watching The Grinch move
and an idea struck - Whoville!
I love the whimsical style of Dr. Suess
and, of course, the bright, rich colors and fun characters ♥

 I took TWO of the Taylored Expressions images (instead of just one)
and created a little snowy, colorful village.
 I created the background with a snow die and 
added pink glitter paper behind it. 

Since I think I know where this card will be going,
I made the hills and border background all hot pink :)
Lastly, I added the matching sentiment and popped it up on foam, too.

You can see Barb's card here and Jeanette's card here!

And Yippee!!

  There's only 15 more days until Christmas!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
