I am honored and blessed that I have found such a wonderful group of ladies to work along side with as well as such a talented artist who not only draws from the heart, but also gives from the heart as well. This week we were asked to pick our favorite project for the year.

It's a Blizzard

Well it's a White on White Blizzard over at Sassy Cheryl's this week challenge and I decided to use this Flat Bottom Snowy again, before he's forgotten about until next year. I think he is just so cute and you can find him HERE. So here is my take on this week's It's a Blizzard. A word I don't want to hear in the forecast espeacially after getting snowed in last year on the day after Christmas and New York came to a stand still for the first time in years, and I had tickets on the 27th to see a show, and in New York, the City never sleeps. And speaking of shows, I am Broadway bound again or I should say off-broadway bound to see Rent tomorrow for a matinee...

Ok enough of that...here is my take on the White on White Blizzard challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's hope you like it, and I hope it's OK since there is a touch of color...

Just write who's birthday it is on the line provided.

I used Bella Carrying The and the Cake which you can find HERE and HERE My Minds Eye Paper since you need double sided paper for this project flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts which you can find HERE and the ribbon and lace from The Ribbon Girl which you can find HERE

Warm winter Wishes - Sassy Cheryl #92

This week at Sassy Cheryl the theme is Winter. I thought this adorable flat bottom snowman would fit the bill for the winter theme and you can find him HERE

Told you I have tons of birthdays this month, and still have a few more birthdays to go. I also followed this beautiful sketch at Papertake Weekly which you can find HERE



I used this beautiful paper that I found at Michaels from Reflections which to me is very warm and rich, and because it has kraft undertones, I decided to give coloring on kraft paper a try and with the help of my DT buddy Dorcas and her wonderful tutorial here is my first attempt at coloring on kraft paper.

So, You can find Looking for Clues HERE It's All in the Accessories HERE and The Cat's in the Tree HERE

Not sure why, but he reminds me of a very young Inspector Jacques Clouseau so I started humming the Pink Panther Song...Dum, De Dum, De Dum, De Dum, De Dum, De Dum, De Dummmmmm, Did De Dum, De Dum. I love those movies and do own many of the DVD's, and laugh and laugh and laugh, and I even starting to talk like him. I just hope Kato doesn't jump out of the closet and scare the bejeeze out of me...lol anyway I am thinking of giving this to Steven, you know Looking for Clues...so he can look for his Christmas present...What do you think? after all he loved the Treasure Hunt card I gave him for his birthday.
