Before Winter is Gone

Hello My Crafty Friends!  I hope you had a most wonderful holiday season.  By now, I imagine, all of your decorations are down and things are pretty much back to normal.  I must confess, my tree is still up with the lights on but ornaments are put away.  I took my time with it because September thru December is the busiest time at my job.  I work full time, plus some over time during those months and I do not have much time to decorate, or craft for that matter.  So I got all of my decorations up on Christmas Eve and enjoyed them until New Year's Eve.  Then we went to Philadelphia to spend a week with my youngest daughter.  So yes, I was reluctant to take them down.  I should get the tree back into the garage some time tomorrow.  (sigh....)

So now that things have calmed down, I'm happy to say that I'm back at my desk working on projects.  I have a lot of ideas and things I'm chomping at the bit to start.  Here is my first make for this year; a little wintry scene since Arizona doesn't get much snow for me to enjoy.

This little guy is made with a snowman die by Magnolia Sweden from their DooHickey's club vol. 12 (Noel).  He didn't come with a scarf so I did make him one.  The beautiful stamp I used around him is called Snowy Circle, also by Magnolia.

I cut my own large tag from chipboard and layered it with cardstock and corrugated card.  All patterned paper is by Nitwit Designs and I embossed white card for the snowy ground.

I ♥ die cuts!  Most of the dies I used for this project are by Magnolia with the exception of the leaf die, that one is by Sizzix.  I used Versa Mark and Frantage to give those leaves some bling.  The fern, by Magnolia, is from DooHickey's club vol. 7 (The Holidays Are Coming) and that gorgeous snowflake is from DooHickey's club vol. 23 (Joyeux Noel).

For this little tag, I used a die that I thought I would never use.  It's from the 2017 Galaxy collection and it turns out it's super cute.  The little snowflake is part of the So Wrapped Snowflake die set.

Look at that sweet little face...

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look.  Your comments are always very much appreciated.  Have A Most Wonderful Day!
