Carbon Copied: Winter Lawnscaping

Today I have the honor of playing along with Karen Baker, from The Bald Dragonfly, in her Carbon Copied Challenge! Karen is an amazing designer, and one of the most supportive people I've met in the blogworld. I 'met' her ages ago, and have loved seeing her success in so many venues!

We are using Lawn Fawn's Bannerific, and Fly Free to play in the Lawnscaping Winter Wonderland challenge. I must say- it WAS a challenge for me! Banners & birds & winter! Oh my! But in the end, I rather like what I created. :)

I also used Sally's ABC's for my sentiment. Ocean Tides cardstock, sprayed with Tsukineko frost shimmer spritz, smokey shadow ink. Prisma pencils to color the bird & the letters (click to enlarge). A copic to outline the bird. What do you think of those vellum snowflakes? I used my cricut! Woohoo! (Baby it's cold outside cart). A little fresh snow ink around the edges. I popped the banner up a bit with 2 sizes of Helmar zapdots.
I'll also add this to the Moxie Fab World die cut challenge!


And we're having our very own winter wonderland here in the Puget Sound area! Hadley's school was cancelled due to snow (we are soooo wimpy here! ha!), so off to the mountains we went to play in real snow! Our silly puppy loves the snow & it was hilarious to watch him bounding through snow as deep as he is tall!

And since Karen & I are both May Arts Design Team members, I thought this the perfect time to have you all check out the Fabulous blog redesign!!! (and you know there will be prizes!) Go check it out here!

Thank you so much for stopping by! If you haven't already, go check out what Karen's made for the challenge! I can't wait to see!

  1. It looks like you all had the most fun, I love it when pups dig through the snow and up with a pile of it on their muzzles. Too funny! And wow, wow, wow your card is beautiful! Those snowflakes look so real against the glittery background and the use of the banner with it cut off on the end is pure genius! Thank you so much for doing Carbon Copied, I know it was a real challenge for both you and I and your card is wonderful!
