Baby it's COLD Outside!
It's time for a new challenge at The East Wind and this time the theme is "Baby, it's Cold Outside". Pretty fitting, considering the cold wave that's sweeping the country (but not here in CA, it's been in the 70's. Yeah, I know, we're sooo spoiled). I had a hard time choosing an image for this one because there are so many fabulous ones appropriate for this theme at The East Wind Etsy Shop, but my new XCut Build a Scene die was just itching to be used and I thought the gorgeous Lucy Loo 'Cat Walk' was the perfect choice. I embossed the top layer with the Cuttlebug limited edition snowfall folder to add some softness to the cold frosty scene. The sentiment is a Starform peel off sticker in silver metallic to match the silvery moon. Lucy looks like she's missing someone, don't you think? It's so hard to be away from the ones you love at Christmas.
I've colored Lucy with Copics and kept the look monochromatic. She does look blue, but at least she's keeping warm in that fabulous fur coat and hat. My teamies have some fabulous inspiration so be sure to visit the Challenge Blog and see their fabulous makes and scroll down to see the winners of our Go Green Challenge while you're there. Can't wait to see how you all are keeping warm and cozy, so please join us.
