A Snowy Flight

No card today. Instead I have a calendar page for you.  My friend, Martha, made a calendar for me last year with a new page for each month that slides into a 3 1/2 x 5 acrylic, magnetic frame.  I have enjoyed it so much that I'm working on new 2010 pages.

This image is a free digital image from There's Magic in the Air.  Every Monday Nina gives away a free image and issues a fun challenge.  This week's challenge was "Anything but a Card".   Be sure to check out the fabulous projects that the DT members made.  I made my calendar page for a second great challenge also.  Easy craft Projects - Challenge is having their very first challenge!!!!   The challenge is to "Make Something Using Turquoise".  Stop by and see the wonderful projects that the DT made.  The colors in my photos aren't quite true, but they're the best I can do with only a camera on an overcast day. I miss my photo editing program.

Here you can see the dimensional snow.  I used USArtQuest Artist's cement for the snow.  It isn't a true white, so I added the glitter.  I used my glaze pen on the eye and buttons and Stickles on the hat trim.

This photo shows the frame (R) that the calendar fits in. 

There's Magic in the Air is having a recipe blog hop Wednesday, December 9th to celebrate the debut of Nina's new online store, Paper Cupcakes. Each blog will be showcasing a new image and sharing a yummy recipe. There will be prizes, a recipe challenge and a chance to be the Guest Designer for the Month of February. Sounds like a ton of fun! The hop starts at There's Magic in the Air.



Blessings
  • A friend had a very special answer to prayer today.
  • The joy that crafting brings.
  • Enjoying quiet talk with Mark over lunch.
Have a terrific day!!!

Inky hugs!
Shelly
