Another day of rain here in CA and it looks like our drought is finally subsiding as we're already over 200% of our average rainfall YTD. WooHoo! This has left me all kinds of opportunities for guilt free crafting with all my new goodies so I'm a happy little camper. I really enjoy playing at the Outlawz Forum, not only because it has a nice group of members, but also because each day there's a new challenge to inspire me, 7 per week, plus an additional Progressive freebie challenge that runs monthly. All this activity has sort of yanked me out of my state of ADD and indecision that's been plaguing me since the holidays so here's another card, this time for the Outlawz Twisted Thursday.
This week the "twist" is "For the Birds". I knew immediately I wanted to use the adorable #112 Snow Birds of a Feather by Sandra Caldwell. They're colored with Copics with a white gel pen for the snow. The cool new die behind them is by Gina Marie. I cut the trees out of kraft paper and then added a kraft border to the image which help integrate it into the design. The icicles along the top are actually a "Grass" punch by MS but I use them way more often as icicles. The teeny snowflakes were also punched. Actually they are the discarded parts from another border punch that proved to be the perfect scale. The sentiment is computer generated and just sort of came to me. I think it's kind of "tweet" don't you?
I'm also adding this to the DL.Art January Linky challenge, Tuesday Throwdown TT325 Snowflakes, TTRCD week of Jan 10th ATG, Cards in Envy Snow Birds, the Cutie Pie January Winter Warmers Challenge, the Crazy Challenge #239 Three of a Kind, and Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #49 ATG.
