Baby, It's Cold Outside

While blurfing on my reader, I saw this awesome card on Cindy Haffner's blog. It was a challenge using limited supplies. You were to combine a colored image, texture or textures, and any shades of neutrals we want and Cindy went with white on white. I really likey her card so I am CASEing it. Cindy's blog is one of my favorites because she makes awesome cards! Please stop by and check out her fabulous work...you will not be disappointed!
For my card, I did not have any pretty trees like Cindy's card so I decided to use this cute snowman. It's another square card 5X5... I used the same nesties that Cindy used on her card. What do you guys think of my card? Anyone likey?? I used my thicker foam tape to make the cut out pop out more and I also added some bling to accent it. A closer peek...
I love the white on white...Thank you Cindy for the inspiration. I can't wait to make more of these cards. I will try using other color combos and see if it looks just as pretty as this one.
Yesterday, we went shopping ALL DAY at the Festival of Giving at all of the Ward stores...boy, am I exhausted! To top it off, we spent a few hours at Ala Moana shopping too! Can you believe it? That's what I call shop til you drop! I had such a fun time just shopping for ME! (I did buy something for my son...)
BTW, thank you to all of you for your sweet comments on my little elf card. I really enjoyed making that one...Well, enjoy your Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!

wow, super cute! i luv a card that i can whip up fast and this one seems fast to do (well, the coloring probably took longer than the actual assembly). usually because i have to give it right then and there. cool beans!
just wanted you to know that i had to do an origami card . . . it was so much fun to make and i did a couple of them too! time to rest after a long day of shopping!!

I loved the this card. White on white does look very cool. Great job on using the copics to blend the blue in to outline the snowman.
Glad that you had fun shopping all day yesterday. I can't wait to hear about what you purchased.
