I have a Mabelle card for you today. This fun image called Snowball Boy can be found in the Whimsy and Stars Studio etsy store.
I started with a base card of white and then cut a mat of Bazzill which I embossed with a snowflake embossing folder. To dress the mat up a bit I broke out some white embossing powder for some frosty fun. The image was colored with Copics, doubled matted and layered on top of another triple matted panel. If you're wondering why I chose the olive green color for his sweater that color is in the cute little snowman DP. It just got covered up. ☺ The snowflake is a Maya Road chipboard piece I covered with Gesso and then glitter. I think I managed to convey the feeling of cold on this card don't you. LOL
Be on the look out tomorrow for some special news from Whimsy and Stars Studio.
I mentioned I'd try to take some photos of the goodies I picked up on vacation. It took three pictures to get it all in. LOL Sorry for the bad lighting. The packaging was reflecting everything.
Here are a few photos from the trip. Unfortunately I didn't bring my zoom lens camera so I didn't get very good pics of the big bear we saw, plus he was a lazy bear and just wanted to lay under the tree in the grass. The first pic is the view from our cabin and the other two are some residents of Cade's Cove. Those turkeys felt pretty darned safe strutting around there considering it was Thanksgiving day. LOL
