Winter Wishes


I changed my blog background. Can you tell I want summer to arrive? I guess I'm thinking I live in Hawaii and it is very warm and beautiful plants are blooming. LOL
 
I've had problems uploading photos on my blog today. It has used up a lot of my day. Hopefully, they will get a fix soon. I saw I was not the only one having a problem. But, the folks at the help section did give me a way around it.
 
My card is for Queen for the Day 146 on Splitcoaststampers and also the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Gallery central theme for December which is Baby, It's Cold Outside. The QFTD challenge was a fun one today. The challenge was to case one of your own cards. I cased this one.
 
My 3 strips of  paper tape is from Martha Stewart Crafts and is probably about the same as Washi tape. I colored my image with Copics. It is an easy, quick CAS card.

The diagonal panel adds such special interest to your cute snowman card! I love all those Hawaiian flowers on your blog background too! I'm already anticipating warmer weather too! LOL I've had enough cold already :)

I like your new blog design. Isn't it fun to spruce up occasionally? And your snowman looks so sweet on the tape. I saw some at Michaels yesterday and had to tear myself away.

Hi Benzi,
der schneemann sieht mit seinen knorrigen Ärmchen ganz lustig aus.
Wunderschön coloriert und das Diagonale Band verleiht der Karte
den letzten Schliff.
Mir gefällt sie.
Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland sendet Dir Carmen

Love the adorable snowman Brenda and the way you have used tape to create your background. I also have some paper tape and like you I'm assuming this must be similar to washi tape.
Also want to give you my best wishes for a happy, healthy and creative 2013!

What a cute Mo-man! When my 14 YO was very, very small, she loved her stuffed snowman and couldn't say "snowman". I think I'll always hear her little voice in my head when I see a snowman. :) (tearing up right now...)

Gorgeous card Brenda, lovin your tape!If you're going to Hawaii then so am I ... 2013 was the wettest year here since records began, I think I've forgotten what sunshine looks like!

NanaConnie said...

Your new blog look may be saying Hawaii and warm weather, but I adore the snowman! I'm not ready to give up winter just yet. I love snowmen so much, I always wish I had an excuse to use them year round. :-D Fantastic card; love the plaid dp.
