Autumn Marci

It's "almost" winter here in Texas - at least, we had our first snow fall this week! It didn't stick long and it was only a short time before it quickly turned to sleet. But that's my excuse for this winter card and I'm sticking to it! LOL


For my project I used Autumn Marci and Garden Bench from La-La Land Crafts which I purchased back in January. I also used the Festive Lantern and Present in the Festive Elements Collection from Make it Crafty. Check out Marci's face... isn't it adorable! Out of all the ones I colored, so far this one turned out to be my favorite. :D


I used all the cool colors on this project plus a few beaded snowflakes from my collection as embellishments. The rest of the card was simple enough and with the dots of snow falling it gave the perfect chilly feeling. Brrrr... time for some hot cocoa!
