It's Winter at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge

Well, it's not officially "winter" here in the northern hemisphere, but it sure feels like it most mornings. This sassy chick opened her eyes at 'zero-dark-thirty', saw a bit of light, turned on the electric blanket, then rolled over for another two hours. What a great morning to tuck in again and curl up.

Each Tuesday is challenge time at Sassy Cheryl's. We've had so much fun with two back-to-back "Anything Goes" challenges... and participation has been fantastic. This week we get to move on to Sassy Pat's new challenge.... "Winter". 

Here's what I created for Sassy Pat's 'winter' challenge...

This sassy gal was simply cut out, added to a base of green acrylic painted paper turned into Sizzix Christmas trees that I ran through a dotted Swiss Cuddlebug folder, and some snow covered hills topped with dimensional snow effects -- just to give it a bit of texture. Snowflakes are from a MS punch... the rest is pretty self-explanatory.

Come and join us at Sassy Cheryl's challenge this week. We do have a great group of people that play along with so many terrific and creative ideas.. I get so much inspiration from all of them.

Peggy, this looks how I imagine you reveling in the first snowfall of the year! Of course the best part would be going back inside for a nice homemade Bailey's Irish Cream -- which, btw, is delicious! Smoooooth! Thanks for the recipe! Love 'n' hugs!
