Icy February

This year may not have been as cold as when I first moved into my house thirty years ago, but definitely colder than the last two or three.  The employees at the pellet store were very busy today, when I went to get a supply, as the winter drags on.

I have two cards this week.   This first card was made at the Cardologist's regular Thursday stamping night.  It started with an idea Melba had and we each had our take on it.  I see the Color Throw down 281 challenge is using these colors so I am going to link it there.  Although I will be the first to say, I am seriously challenged when it comes to lining up dies with images.  It was Lola's idea to glitter the flowers, which I wish the scanner would pick up.

This next one is another bouncing brayer background.  Lola thinks it needs a bag of popcorn embellishment in the corner because it makes her think of the fair.  I am thinking it will be a thank you, and I will add a French "Merci".  What do you think?

  1. Lovely cards! I really like the glitter on the flower image. Thanks for joining us for this week's Color Throwdown!

  2. Pretty cards Dora. Love the flower and butterfly images. The glitter finish must look really nice in real life. The bounding brayer background is fabulous! Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown.
