Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #318 - Snow

Welcome to the new challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  Our theme is snow.  Just last week, we had snow in the South where I live.  We stayed in for two days - cozy and warm in the freezing weather.  When we've had snow here, my husband has gone out and made a snowman.  I never have - LOL!  I made my card in honor of the snowmen my hubby has made.

I inked my background using Distress Inks, and then sprayed the background with water. The snowman and snow flakes have a coating of Clear Wink of Stella, though it's hard to see in the picture.  It's a simple card, but kinda cute, I think.  I will add a sentiment later when I decided to whom I will send it.

It's 2018!

This is my first post of 2018.  Life just got in the way of my posting until now, so I'm wishing everyone a belated Happy New Year.  We are having bouts of extreme cold here in the South as are other regions.  Just keeping warm has practically turned into a job.  But at least today the sun is out and temperatures are reasonable for our area.  We'll see what happens tomorrow.

If you haven't already seen it, my blog buddy Darnell has put together an amazing team for a new blog challenge:  Twofer Card Challenge.  The concept is to create two separate cards using the same stamps or dies.  It's a lesson in stretching your supplies and adding to your stash all at the same time. I decided to join in and here's what I came up with:


I created a Valentine card and an anniversary card, which puts me ahead of the game since Valentine's Day is next month and our anniversary is in October.  I heat embossed the Valentine and stamped the anniversary card.

It now occurs to me that I perhaps should have posted separate pictures of the cards in addition to the picture of them together as required by the Twofer Challenge.  I will next time.
