Winter Pixie

I love winter...sometimes. Having lived in NC all of my life I always wanted more snow because until the last couple of years it just didn't ever snow in NC! Well, it did this year for sure! We have gotten MORE snow in the last 6 weeks this year than in the last total 10 years I think :) I'm about sick of my kids out of school and going in late, but I still like the cold weather.


I used the new January Pixie for this card, she's available over in the Pixie Dust Studio store. I've colored her in blues and greens to match this fun paper by 3 Bugs in a Rug. (This is the back of cute Penguin paper...and its still super cute!!) I have the paper available in my online Boutique.

Here's a closeup of Pixie, so you can see the Black glaze that I added to her hat and buttons to make them super shiny! (Don't forget that there is a DT CALL going on right now at Pixie Dust Studio, and Kathy has a FREE Pixie there for you to snatch up!)


For my layout I used this weeks sketch from The Sweetest Thing. I cut my circles with nestabilties, then cuttlebugged my circle with Snowflake Dots.



The sentiment is from a CC Designs set called Snowmen. I punched it out with the word window punch from SU! then popped it up on the card. The ribbon is Bazzill and will also be available in The Scrappy Chick Boutique!
