SNOW in Spring??

Hello dear friends and followers.  Did my title catch your eye?  
Finally, finally we have spring here in Montana - so why in the world would I say Snow?
Well...that's because my DT card for the challenges this week at 
52CCT - May Pick a Previous Challenge (this time its a previous sketch)
and My Time to Craft #250  No Designer Papers
 is all about SNOW.   Take a look:

Not a stitch of designer paper in sight on this card :o).
That's the idea for MTTC #250.
You can use inks, stamping, watercolor or embossing - just no DP.
I find that I don't miss DP as much when I use some dry embossing to add texture.

As I mentioned the challenge this week at 52CCT is to Pick a Previous Sketch.

I used the Sketch #16 from April 2013

Please visit our sketches archive HERE and select any one of the sketches to work with.  
You can change shapes, rotate the layout, make a rectangular or square card. 
As long as the basic layout comes through to us, it's all good! 
 Please don't forget to tell us which sketch you selected!

You may have noticed that most of my DT cards this month for the 52CCT Challenges
used images from Bugaboo Digis.  I was very honored to be chosen as May's Biggest
Fan at Bugaboo and had a lot of fun creating with the cute images this month.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Completely Christmas #14 - Anything Goes
Christmas Card Challenges #26 - Anything Goes
The Outlawz Friday's Alchol Markers Challenge - Anything Goes
w/option to make it Christmas or Winter Holiday.

I hope that I've inspired you to play along with one of these great challenges.
I can't wait to visit you and see what you've made.
The rest of my lovely DT pals have also made some amazing creations
for your inspiration.  Please go visit them as well and say "hi" while you're there.

Time for me to get my crafty little self to bed tonight.
Have a busy day planned in the yard tomorrow (barring rain or snow - lol)
Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D

  8. Snow in spring is not an uncommon experience for me as I live in Norway. A part from December, which I only love because of Christmas, my favorite month is May, it's a month were we can experience all the four seasons during the same month! Love the bold colors, fun image!
