Love Ya So Dam Much!

Remember how I made a few paper strip cardstock panels and said I'd use them all someday? Well, I wasn't kidding.

And, to say I absolutely love the latest Lawn Fawn release would be no exaggeration either.  Just look at those beavers!  And the pun?!  How could I not, right?

It Moose Be Your Birthday

I thought of the LF Let It Shine Starry Skies paper when I saw the most recent Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #139 inspiration board.

I had colored up this moose ages and ages ago so this card was relatively quick to put together.  I did some quick sponging of the trees and the mountains, even adding some glitter pen to the trees.  So shiny!

Paper Strip Background

I saw this pin with a card by Bette Manning and absolutely loved the striped background. I immediately cut some strips of cardstock and mounted them to a piece of printer paper then cut them into A2 panels.  This is the first finished card.  I embossed a couple of panels too but haven't worked with them beyond that.  More coming soon (hopefully!).

White Winter Wonderland

I am so feeling this scene right now.  We had 5" of snow on Tuesday which is absolute craziness.  Not only do we infrequently get snow but to have it this time of year?  Just wow!

And just wow on the Honey Bee Winter Village cabin.  Look at all that detail.  Amazing!
