Dashing Through the Snow...

I'm really entering challenges at the last minute here lately, and today is no exception. This is for the Simon Says Stamp weekly challenge to use Dawny's sketch which ends tomorrow. I found this image of Dasher that I'd stamped and sponged a long time ago and never used. It looks like I may have splashed Versafine re-inker onto the image to create the snow, and then sprinkled on some fine glitter to make the flakes sparkle after drying. The ef is by Sizzix, and the blue is a scrap piece I found in my bin. The background was stamped with Ranger Tumbled Glass ink using 2 snowflake stamps and the sentiment is from SU! I layered 2 different sizes of ribbon for the horizontal panel and added a felt snowflake with a turquoise pearl on top using Glossy Accents.

It's snowing pretty good here today in PA and there's at least an inch of the white stuff on the ground already, so it's a good day to stay indoors and get busy on those Christmas cards and crafts!

Enjoy your day!

Carol

Very pretty. Love the light blue snow flakes in the background. Your image panel is just lovely and goes well with your weather there today. We are suppose to get the snow starting this afternoon/evening. As long as it doesn't cause accidents on the road, I love to see the snow and/or ice on the trees in the back yard. I'm trying to get decorations down and make cards all at the same time and we both know I'm not that great at multi-tasking so I don't know how much of either will get done today. LOL. Enjoy your crafting day, Carol.

The trees are so heavy! It looks so pretty, but I have to shovel this weighty stuff! Love this majestic reindeer you found. Great card for SSS!

I think Dasher is loving the snowflakes falling all around him. Beautiful card, Carol!
So you have snow? We, of course, just have rain falling...mostly drizzle now.

This is so pretty! Love the layout you used. Sounds like your getting more snow on that side of the river, barely white here.

Very pretty Carol... And so perfect for today. I did like you did today, when I saw all that snow out my window, I thought it would be a good day to make cards...smile...
