Celebrate New Snow with a Smile

     A really quick post which I'll schedule to go live on Monday.  For the last two or three days, I've had real problems connecting to the internet and staying on once I do connect.  I want to share this fun and CAS card using a sweet image from Rick St. Dennis which makes a new layer of snow seem like something to be celebrated.  :-D

I used the sketch from CAS - Colours and Sketches.

     I colored the image in reds and pinks with ProMarkers and chalked the edges after die cutting it.  I cut the "arrow" piece, layered it to the back of the image and put that whole thing on the textured card front.   The sentiment was cut with one of my new dies from Creative Dies by Penny Black.  Voila' - done in no time at all.

     Well, I've been punted off line 5 times while typing up this post!  Grrrr.  I'm going to have to rethink my internet provider and maybe make a change.  Hopefully, I'll see you again for my DT posts.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Your internet sounds like what mine was doing this morning! It couldn't decide if it wanted to stay connected or not!
Glad this finally got posted though because it's so pretty. Love the sentiment die (and I just ordered a similar one from a different company! Wish I'd seen this one first!)
Very pretty card!
