Roses on Paper DT and Whiff of Joy Challenge


While I detest snow, I've got to admit that it's just beautiful when it's falling. I think Lizzie with Muff reminds me of the love I have for snow. She's so soft and sweet looking all dressed up in her wool outfit and her ear and hand muffs! What a beauty she is!

I made Lizzie for the Design Team Challenge for the Roses on Paper Group at Paper Craft Planet and also for the Whiff of Joy challenge. We were challenged to create a Christmas card using a Whiff of Joy, Magnolia or Stampavie stamps. This beauty came from Summer at Roses on Paper and I can't get enough of her! When I got the Winter Wonderland paper from Dovecraft from Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, I knew what colors I was going to do her in. Susana's is the only place in the states you can order this paper from and it's in very limited supply so e-mail her for the availability of this great selection of paper. It's absolutely luscious to feel and the colors are just so rich and full.

Winter is still my least favorite season, but Lizzie and Winter Wonderland made it a bit easier to take! Thanks for looking

Recipe: Lizzie With Muff by Whiff of Joy, Winter Wonderland paper from Dovecraft, Gold Sparklers, Atyou Silver Glitter pen, Glitter Stack from DCWV, Snowflake punch and glitter from Martha Stewart, White Fun Flock.

Hi Susan! I love your work! Everything is so pretty. :) Also, Susana Magenheimer said you might be able to help me? She gaveme a copy of her banner to add to my blog, however, as hopeless as this sounds, I can not figure out how to do it. Do you think you could tell me? I would so appreciate it! :) My name is andrea and my blog is www.impressionsaremade.blogspot.com
