New Home

Wow! It feels like I've been gone forever.  And while I've made a couple of cards, I've been struggling and thrown many attempts away.  So finally, here I am with a card....

Congratulations on your new home!  For the life of me, I couldn't get this particular card to look the way I saw it in my head.  I couldn't get it grounded the way I wanted, the colors just weren't what I wanted, on and on.  That said, here it is...

An ink blended background, a bit of splattering, a couple dies for the homes and trees, and a free-handed "snowy hill" spritzed with Shimmer Mist.  I took a close-up to show the shimmer, but alas it doesn't show as well as I'd hoped...

Well, we've had A LOT of snow, quite a bit more than usual and A LOT of cold (now in the teens to single digits) and gray skies.  While I really enjoy the snow (and yes I've shoveled a few times), I could really do without the gray!  Gray skies make it hard to be joyous, make it hard to photograph pictures, and generally unwanted in my book.  I do hope that all of you are fairing well though, staying warm, and enjoying your days!  And THANK YOU for popping in!
