Thanks Snow Much

Hello everyone and welcome to my little corner!
I hope your weekend is going well and you are slowly getting back to "normal" after all the holiday festivities!  It's been a slow return to normal around here, but we are getting there...I think!

Now that the holidays are over, I thought I better get started on a few special thank you notes.  I wanted to do some winter themed cards this year.  We get so little "real winter" here in southeast Alabama and have the short time frame between Christmas and Valentines Day to really have any cold weather.  When we do get a bit of cold weather, I pull out my big, heavy quilt and add it to my bed. There is just something about a quilt that says warm and cozy!  So, I decided to "quilt" my thank you card for a warm and cozy kind of feeling.... that warm and cozy or what?

*Cardstock - Coredinations

*Patterned paper - Winter Magic by DCWV (Nine 1.5 X 1.5 inch squares)

*Mat - Spellbinders Beaded Circles die (medium blue) and Circles die (light blue)

The light blue, circular mat was stamped with snowflakes from the Pink By Design stamp set Snowflakes.  I used Versa Mark ink in Dazzle and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

*Snowman - Cricut's 'Tis The Season cartridge cut at 2.75 inches.  I embossed his hat with the Cuttlebug folder Houndstooth and used Glossy Accents on the brim of his hat, eyes, and mouth.  I replaced the star on his hat with snowflakes I made with a paper punch.  A few dots and some Stickles were the finishing touches.

*Sentiment is also from the Pink By Design stamp set Snowflakes.

I continued the "quilted look" on the inside of my card...
And, that's my warm and cozy card for today!

I also have a bit of news to share with you today.  As many of you already know, I am on the Pink By Design Design Team.  And, in case you haven't already heard the news, Sarah is having a new Design Team Call!  If you love Pink By Design stamps and would love to be part of the Pink By Design family, please read the Design Team Call post for all the details!  Sarah, Kyle and all the designers are just fabulous to work with and I would love to see one (or more) of my blogging friends added to this wonderful team!

Well, guess that's about it for me now. I'll be back later this week with an update and more photos of Miss Lola - my Christmas Yorkie.  Can't wait to share her latest "photo shoot" with you!

Until next time,


  1. Oh Tanya, this is SO beautiful! I love all of the different papers you used to make the quilt, but my favorite is that texture folder you used on the hat. There is just always that little touch of clever that I never seem to think of in your designs. Love 'em! Can't wait to see more Lola pics!

  2. Thanks Tanya.... I think I am going to try for it... do you have any suggestions??

  3. I just saw your cute card on Facebook and I had to pop over to take a closer look, it is so adorable. I love how you embossed the sentiment in white, it really pops off the card. The snowman is adorable, he looks too cute on the quilt background. Great job on the card!

  4. Very cute. TFS. Unfortunately, I don't have Tis the Season Cart...oh well.

  5. Super cute snowman card. Lots of embossing with great colors.

    Hope you will stop by,
