I see snow, do you?


I made this card with the August kit from My Paper Tree House. The kit has papers from Echo Park Paper's Life is Good collection. The yummy pinks, blues and other muted colors are great for any time—but do you see winter in this kit? I did!

This is my version of a very merry peppermint Christmas! :)


My other WONDERFUL news about this card... I got Copics!! And a big thanks to my girl Kristy who helped me with color decisions. I have to warn anyone considering buying Copics to find a Copics instructor FIRST, before you buy your markers. I was way off on what I thought I should buy before I ran everything by Kristy. So, thanks again, girlie!!!

I really didn't think when I colored this it was going to turn into anything, but I was pleasantly surprised that I really liked it, and I just had to make a card. Next time I'll try to do that thing where Copics users show which markers they used. I doubt I'll remember very often, but you never know! :)

Thanks for stopping in today!

Love the card. That line of paper from Echo Park is one of my favs and the snowman is
adorable...but you are not helping me in my resolve to resist Copics. I have a feeling that they are one of those things that once you start, you just can't stop.

You are a copic girl born and bred! Look at your fabby snowman! I love it! Great blending on his hat too! And beware, copics are like chips, you can't have just one :D
