Blue Skies....With a Hint of Snow!

Hello, and welcome!

How are you,  my lovely bloggie friends?  I'm just a TAD busy....hahaaa.....but, aren't we all gettin' that way at this time of year?  Doesn't help that I effectively "lose" a few days, each week, because I'm either minding grandkiddles or on the phone, trying to sort an extended-family problem....and that takes mega chunks of my time, at the moment.....sheeesh!

It's lovely to take a break, and make a post for our challenge at Twist of Faith Cards

We are always happy to have our current sponsor with us ... StampArt Design by Kathryne! Our random prize winner will receive their choice of 4 images from the SADK collection available at Whimsy Stamps ... wonderful! We're thrilled to have  StampArt Design by Kathryne as a sponsor because we love the images and sentiments!

Our theme for you this week is

This is a colour challenge, so we want to see lots of blue ... maybe you'll create a monochromatic card... it doesn't matter, as long as BLUE  is your main colour!  Remember our 'twist of faith', too..... your creation should also include a scripture, or quote or an uplifiting sentiment that suits this week's theme.

Taste and see that the LORD is good.
Oh the joys of those who takes refuge in him!
       Psalm 34:8 NLT

Here is a scripture to share, or for inspiration ....please use any scripture that offers a message fitting our theme.

Here we go.......

The sweet little bear is from a whole sheet of them called Little Winter Bear Fun and he's coloured up with Promarkers.  The background is from a freebie Forever Friends pack that came with a magazine, last year....(forgot all about it, but it has some lovely bits and bobs in it)......and I added sparkly Mod Podge to the snow on the tree and fence...........

Little Winter Bear looks all warm and snuggly in his Rudolph jumper, but has a bit of a lost look on his face...hahaa!  I die cut the lamp from blue starry paper and added an orange glow with a bit of scrap......

 The lovely sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and I backed it with blue spotty paper, edged with blue ink......love the sparkle on this......
A big juicy snowflake with a red button, sewn on with silver thread completes this little card.....and now it's your turn!

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the delights that our fabby Design Team have created.

Thanks for stopping in to see me.....I love it when you do!
