Cabin in the Snow

      I've used this die a couple of times already on Christmas cards this season but the die is a new one for me and I'm discovering different ways to use it.  This time I put it on a distressed, deep blue, background and colored a few parts to make them pop.

     This card reminds me of my favorite Christmas movie, "White Christmas," with Bing Crosby.  The cabin could be the barn where they rehearsed and put on the Christmas show with all the marvelous classic music and all the snow makes it look like a New England winter.  Nobody before or since has had a voice like Bing Crosby!

Gold glitter paper
Sentiment cut w Die-Versions die
Snowflakes are the centers of the upper snowflakes


     That's all for today but my back is finally getting better so I'm going to try some coloring today (not too long at a time) and I hope to have new posts for you both tomorrow and Saturday.  Are you already scrambling with Christmas plans?   

     I hope to have my cards which need to be mailed all finished and in the mailbox by Saturday, then I can finish those which go to local friends/family and distribute all the extra ones I donate to our local senior center, nearly 100 this year.  This year, they will have to go to the volunteers at the Center who will take them to various seniors so that they have cards to give their family members.  Most of these seniors have no way to get out on their own to buy cards so the donated cards are a perfect way for them to see the joy on family faces when they get a special card from Gran or Poppa.  :-D

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
