One of the girls in my stamping group suggested that we think of what supplies we want to use more of in 2018, and all I know is I have so much paper in my room it is crazy, so for the challenge I used two different papers for layering of my background and then another piece to frame my stamped image and some of that same paper to make my tag. All to often when I got to make a tag I grab for white cardstock, maybe I will try to use more pattern paper this year for tags :) I used almost 3 entire sheets of 6x6 paper on just one card with very few scraps :)
I was trying to bring out the blue in the paper with my coloring but I think I may have been a bit heavy with the dark blue and for the life of me I couldn't get it to blend out.
I also added a bit of sparkle with my stickles to bring out the snow and sparkle in the river.You can see it a little better in the close up.

I can't really tell with all the blowing out there but I think we got around an inch of snow over night and the temps are going to fall throughout the day and by tonight with windchill it will be -15. They were not kidding when they said this was going to be a cold winter, our normal for this time is 40 degrees. But this next weekend it is going to warm up again, so if we can just get through this week we will be ok :)
Hope your week is off to a good start and thanks so much for taking the time to stop by an say Hello :)
