This is...

Hey y'all! Happy Saturday! Hope you're enjoying the weekend?!...I know the days ahead are only gonna become busier and busier for many of us! ;)

Anyhow, I stopping in to share a card I made for the current Virginia's View Challenge.

Here's my card.

I know there's still a little time left for the challenge. Though, I felt a little 'rushed' to get something done. lol Perhaps, it's the time of year and knowing I have some exciting things coming up!?! ;)

So, for my card I actually started off doing my background different from shown. But honestly, it wasn't working for me. After some playing around, I decided to use the negative from a circle die cut for my 'sky'. I used a couple different blue distress inks to fill in my sky. Then added my 'snow' using a dark blue ink. Once done, I added my sentiment pieces and a little gold star. Top finish everything off, I added my wood veneer house in the middle. So, what do you think?!...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
