TPE #231 {Happy Winter!}

Happy Winter Solstice! We already have more snow than we normally have ALL winter season and officially, the first day of Winter was Saturday! YIKES! Hopefully we don't get TOO much more over the next 3-4 months!

The countdown is on folks! Just 2 more sleeps 'til the "big guy" comes! Are you excited or stressed?! Hopefully you are almost done all your preparations and you can relax for the next couple days and enjoy your time with family and friends! I believe I am all done - just a few pies to make and I'm ready! 

The challenge for the next TWO WEEKS is an Anything Goes challenge over at The Pink Elephant! Yipeee! I love ATG challenges - opens up the options and we get to see so much creativity come through :) 

For my card this week, I used the uber-cute "Ollie-Owl" from byLORi Designs....isn't he adorable?!?

  1. Nice color combo for the cute little owl. His scarf looks warm and snugly! The snowflakes and bling highlight him well. And that bow is super. Thanks for dropping this off at 613 Avenue Create.

  2. Fabulous use of color and beautiful color integration throughout the design. Very pristine creation beautifully executed! Thanks for dropping this off by our house here at 613 Avenue Create!
