Perfect Sentiments Challenge #61 - Winter Wonderland

Hey all!  Thanks for dropping by today to see the latest challenge for Perfect Sentiments!  Living in Minnesota I get to experience winter to the fullest - snow...sleet...freezing rain...cold (and I mean -20 F not counting the windchill).  Don't get me wrong, I love winter with the gorgeous snowy landscapes and ice covered lakes I feel blessed that we have 4 very distinct seasons here and each has it's own charm.  This year we are truly having a winter wonderland - we have just enough snow and the temps have been downright balmy (it was 26F today!).  My favorite thing to do in the winter?  Curl up inside with a warm cup of cocoa and a good book!  Hope you'll join me this week :)

The Challenge:  Create a card with a sentiment for winter (sentiment must be on the front of the card)

The Twist:  Use a winter image or any embellishments, embossing folders, etc. to give your card a winter feel.  Think outside the box!  Cups of cocoa...

Here's my card this week:

Supplies for this project
Cardstock:  Truly Yours – Black Card Base; Bazzill – Deep Nautical Blue, Coconut Swirl

Can't wait to see what you all come up with this week!



  1. I love the window and snowy image outside! It makes for a very pretty card!

  2. I love this window card, Cheryl ! There's something almost magical about being able to look out and see the snowman. Wonderfully done!
