Stay Cool!

Time flies!  It’s Day 6 of November previews with My Favorite Things!   Today we’re sharing samples of seven new Pure Innocence images.




I believe I was channeling Inge on this card.  :)  I love how she distresses her papers, and it’s been a while since I’ve done that.  I just love the look.

My little snowboarder was colored with Copics, then I sponged the edges with VersaMagic Wheat, added lots of stitching and some snowflakes cut using Snowflake Trio Die-namics.  In the centers of the smaller flakes, I placed tiny button brads.  I ♥ those.

On the inside, I stamped the snowboarder and a swirl from Sassy & Sweet, leaving plenty of room for a personal note (telling someone just how cool they really are).
