Happy Winter

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a wonderful  Christmas. Ours was great – a few parties, lovely gifts, yummy food, family days spent relaxing in our pajamas – it was the perfect mix of going places to celebrate and spending some quiet time at home. I did a bit of crocheting over the last week and finished a few projects that I am excited about. I’ll be showing those to you in the next few days.

Now to the business of the day – another crafty challenge courtesy of The Memory Nest: a color challenge with a twist, the twist being to use chevrons or sunbursts.
When I sat down to create for this challenge I could not believe how long it had been since I did any scrapbooking - a challenge was exactly what I needed to work on to get back into my creative groove.

I made two winter cards. Very appropriate considering the weather here - snowing and so cold! 

The paper and stickers I used are from the Winter Frost line by We R Memory Keepers and are leftover from a winter layout I did last year.
Lots of patterned paper and layers on this first card, plus a cute little snowman.
The second card is much simpler.
Notice I didn't go overboard with the chevrons. They are there to add a little detail to the cards, but are in no way overpowering.

As usual, the work of the other ladies on the Design Team can be found over at The Memory Nest.

Thanks for reading and if it is cold where you are, try and keep warm.


  1. Wonderful paper. Your colors match perfectly for the challenge.

    1. Thanks Jessica. I remembered this paper as soon as I saw the colors for the challenge - so glad I could find it among all my scraps.

  2. Lovely cards and great take on the colors!!

    1. Thanks Leslie. And thank you for hosting another great challenge.
