Eskimo Kisses

Eskimo Kisses - The first challenge of the year at Creative Card Crew is "Snow Day." This is a nice easy challenge to ease us back to crafting after our busy holiday season.

This image made me think of my son and his wife, who are stationed in Alaska. Unfortunately Adam was deployed to Afghanistan and will not be there for his first Christmas since being stationed there. He returns in early winter in 2012, so we are all planning an Alaskan Christmas next year.

We are sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp. Simon Says Stamp has a huge stock of crafting supplies. They are our monthly sponsor and are giving a $20 gift voucher to one lucky winner.

My sketch is from Sketchy Colors. They are a site that I recently found. I really like that they have combined a color with the challenge and they give you a lot of time to do it. Their color challenge is different in that it is not a color combo that I would never use without the suggestion of their color challenge, but they are classic color combos that are really pretty together. As for this challenge is to pick one of their past color combos, I looked through all their past challenges and was delighted with each one of them. I choose the pink and turquoise.

My image is Siku and Shiya from Mo's digital pencil. I love Mo's images. The look on the faces of Mo's images are always heart warming. I view her as the Norman Rockwell of digi images.

My DP's are Wintry Christmas by Wild Rose Studio. I used some ribbon from my scrap ribbon jar and the snowflakes were punched with white and blue sugar paper, then topped with a gemstone.
