Dashing Through the Snow

Welcome to the weekend.
No, it doesn't look like this at my house yet.  We are experiencing much warmer temperatures then usual.  Sure it's coming though and maybe we will have a white Christmas yet.

I am playing along with the challenge at Splitcoast this morning inspired by the Vera Bradley site and this cozy blanket which you would need after being out in that much snow!

I tried to keep my card mostly red and white which really feels Christmasy to me.
I began by stamping the image from Serendipity Stamps with black Memento ink then coloured it with Copic markers.  I then tore 2 pieces of paper and glued them over the image to resemble snow.  
Super simple.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Serendipity Stamps- HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Simon Says-  LET IT SNOW


(paper tearing)

Crafty Catz- LET IT SNOW

Hope you have a great weekend and thanks so very much for coming by to take a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Serendipity, The Old Island Stamp Comp./ Memento bl ink/ Copic markers
