Tuesday Throwdown Guest Designer

I received an e-mail from Davi over at Tuesday Throwdown last week wanting to know if I'd like to be the Guest Designer for January!  Whoa....you could have blown me over with a feather - so excited!  Of course I said a great big YES, so here I am.......

The challenge for this week at Tuesday Throwdown is "Baby, it's cold outside".  Catherine Pooler, who is a independent SU demonstrator is providing a wonderful prize for this challenge!  Be sure and check out all the fabulous creations by the DT and come on over and play along.


The image is from a set called To You and Yours from SU.  I used some Baja Breeze (now sadly retired) card stock, DP and ribbon because I think this color gives it a wintery feel.   I colored the image with SU markers and then added glitter on the ground and roof.  You really have to look close to see the glitter, but believe me it's there!    I think everything I used on this card is from SU except for the glitter and snowflake embossing folder...oh, and of course the nestie too.  This card really can be used for a Christmas card or just a "winter" card.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers (Use brads or eyelets) and Dilly Beans (winter wonderland).

Thanks for stopping by......and be sure and check out the Tuesday Throwdown challenge!!!

Congrats! You have great talent, so I am not surprised they asked you. Love your card, the Baja Breeze does give it that icey winter feel. The image is perfect with the colors and the glitter. Loving that perfect bow. It is just wet and chilly up here right now, but so great to get about 3" of rain.

Glad to finally get your link. I was wanting to comment on this beautiful card last week that you had on Tuesday Throwdown and meant to ask Davi for your blog address and never got to it. I LOVE Baja Breeze and think it is such a super color for wintry cards. Love your creation!!!
