**Winter Fun***

Well Christmas is over and I guess I should be downstairs taking down the tree but of course I have been up in my room creating!!!  Seems like forever since I was able to scrap and post and I know some would think that I gave it up but with the busy season and the hustle and bustle of the holidays I didn't get to do all that I love to do!!!  I was visiting some of my favorite challenge sites to get a little inspiration to start back up again!!!  My Craft Spot  Monday Challenge #39 - Winter Wonderland  is the Challenge this week.  This site always has so much inspiration and wonderful things to purchase for your stash and use!!!  You had to use glitter and man do I have glitter...  I made two cards up but only submitted one!!!

My Craft Spot Entry
I have always loved winter frolic cart since I bought it last year but haven't had much time to play with it!!  And when I saw this cut it brought back memories of being a little girl and going outside with my sister after a big snow and making snow angels in the snow!!!!  Using my imagine I was able to match up my papers and also use the phrase cut that cut like butter on my imagine!!!
Bitten By the Bug inspired (skates)
   The new thing about these cards are that I designed them in the CRAFT ROOM and was able to print and cut them with my Imagine!!!  So excited to finally be able to do this with out tearing my hair out!!!!

I also used some clear acetate and stamped the black part of the sentiment with Stazon ink so that I could still have the beautiful glitter paper show thru and get a pretty clear stamp image!!!  I was in such a glittery mode that the stickles came out too!!!

Hopefully this will be the first of many cards I will be able to make in the coming weeks!!  Thanks for stopping by!!!!

These cards are adorable, Sandi! I love that you made the skater's cute lil face pink! Would have never thought of that. Glad you are back in that craft room of yours.
