Stay Warm!

(Hope you guys don't get tired of seeing me today.  I have four posts scheduled so don't miss out on my Kraft Journal tutorial and my two posts for Inky Impressions including a blog hop)

     I don't know about where you live, but here on the coast our weather just can't make up it's mind what it wants to do.  Freezing one day, hot the next.  Everybody's getting colds from the back and forth and you never know how to dress.  Craziness!  :-)
     Our Papercraft Star challenge this week is "Warmth".  This may sound crazy for someone who lives in the boiling hot south, but I love to be bundled up.  I'm very cold natured which unfortunately is the polar opposite of my hubby.  I really believe his thermosat is broken.  LOL
     So, for my card (since I like to bundle), I've used a cute image from Phindy's Place and colored it with Copics.  Both tags come from the Grunge Tags (048) digital sheet from our sponsor, The House Across the Bay.  I printed them out on cardstock and stamped the sentiment on the smaller one.
     We'd love for you to come and join us for our challenge this week.  You have until Monday morning at 6:00 a.m. EST to link up and have a chance to win some awesome digital image downloads from THATB.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
