Happy Winter Birthday...Curtain Call~Winter Wonder, Merry Monday #140~Snowflakes, Virginia's View #11~Clean Slate, Just Us Girls #274~Winter, Christmas Card Challenge #5

Hello...

We're waiting for a furnace guy to come our way (as mentioned in my previous post) and since he's not arrived yet, I'm sneaking in like a flash with another "I have only white card stock on hand' card!  This one is full-on Winnie & Walter...swoon-inducing products and incredible service. Check them out if you haven't already! *Winter* is several die-cuts layered (Seasons Cutaways) , and the snowflakes (Bigger Bang Flurries) are dewdrop-ink stamped with peanut brittle, toffee crunch (sugar theme continues *grin*), and grey flannel.


Firing my cards into the galleries at:

Curtain Call~Winter Wonder







and a new-to-me challenge (thank you Gail!): The Christmas Card Challenge #5

NOTE: Thrilled, honoured and delighted that my card received recognition as the Christmas Card Challenges winner. THANK YOU immensely!

NOTE: Delighted and thrilled to receive be an Honourable Mention selection over at Merry Monday. THANK YOU immensely!

Furnace guy arrived...

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day.

  2. Love this sweet card dear friend. Those colors are so beautiful together and your design is just a delight. The little pearl is the perfect touch and that die cut is uber cool. Might have to expand my budget and get a few W&W goodies... especially after seeing this beauty. Hope things are alright with you. Take good care of yourself and your mum. Thinking and praying for you. big hugs. Bev

  20. Jumped out of the Curtain Call gallery at me! So soft and lovely and perfect for a winter birthday! Why do furnaces seem to go out when the temp is the lowest? Same thing just happened to my parents in MI. Big hug to keep you warm.

  21. This such a beauty Carol, your restricted cardstock isn't holding back your creativity!
    Hope the furnace man gets your Mum's boiler sorted in this cold weather. My daughter's boiler was on the blink before Christmas and they were without hot water and heat for a few days and they'd just had it serviced not long before! At least the weather was quite mild at the time! :)

  23. Oh my gosh Carol, this is jaw dropping gorgeous!!! The white space and the gold snowflake!! Wow!!!

  24. I LOVE it! I just wandered over to my craft desk because I unexpectedly have to make a birthday card for tomorrow. I decided to browse a few blogs first - and look at this LOVELY card that I can CAS(E)!!

    I hope the furnace guy does well. I live in fear of our ancient furnace giving up. It's not just that the furnace is very expensive, but the room it is in is no longer up to code so there would also be structural changes.

  27. You have totally captured the beauty of winter in your card! The white sentiment on the white card is exactly as it is outside! A splash of elegant metallic colors add just the right amount of dazzle without compromising the softness of your design. Breathtakingly beautiful! Mother Nature would be proud!
