FMS #64, PP #124 & 10MCD #8 ~ Winter!

I've had a  day of hanging around the house doing laundry, baking 2 yummy loaves of banana bread, and just doing those little things that need done. All of this after my little fur baby had a chilly walk this morning. Our crazy weather was down to 34 this morning from the splendid low 60s we enjoyed yesterday. And then of course I decided to get crafty between the fluffing and folding! It's been far too long since I played along at Freshly Made Sketches, The Paper Players or the 10 Minute Craft Dash. So I put this little number together for all three challenges.


I wanted to use this tall thin snowman by Art Gone Wild so I turned the sketch on end. I am completely smitten with this October Afternoon paper that I picked up last year. My fav little polka dots are the reverse side...sweet!!! Lots of red here for the 10 Minute Crafts Dash along with touches of aqua. My die cuts were kind of laying around so it made my frenzied pace easier LOL!!! A scrappling of a felt die cut border and layered Peace Be Still PTI snowflakes add that winter warmth. Easy peasy and one of my favorite color combos!
 
 Thanks for taking a peek into my little corner of the world today ~Lisa

Mmmm! Banana bread... I hope you saved me a piece ;). Such a pretty, little number! I, too, adore this color combo, and your layered snowflake and length of die cut felt are fabulous!

I still don't know how you do it in 10 minutes! (or less) This card would take me a good hour to put together. You rock, rigl!

I love the colors, too. That snowman is adorable, and I love the little touches of felt. LOVE the polka dots! Great job on getting 3 challenges into a 10-minute card. WOW! ;-)

I agree with Jinny....Mmmmm, Banana Bread! Yum! I love the smells of baking in the house in winter. I just made a Quick Bread coffee cake the other day. It's almost gone, between me and my girls.

I like your October Afternoon papers too! Those polka dots are pretty in red and light blue. Don't you love when several challenges all meld beautifully together?

Not sure what I love more...the card itself or the fact that you whipped it all together in almost 9 minutes! Rockstar!! Love the fun mix of patterns and blue and red is one of my favorite holiday color combos EVER! Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :) Big hugs to you and Mr. Max!

Sign me up for some aqua and red any day! They look great with your snowman : ) I have some brown bananas on the counter but they will have to wait another day ... we have a family Christmas party tomorrow and there's still lots for me to do.
