Baby, It's Cold Outside!

I'm so sad that this is my last project as part of the My Craft Spot creative design team. It has been such a joy to help Kimberly promote her wonderful products over the years and I am so incredibly thankful to her for allowing me this honour. Thank you, Kimberly!!

I actually had another project in mind for this post but my right hand was on the receiving end of an angry dog's teeth this weekend. I didn't need stitches and the bite mark itself is healing nicely but my hand is still quite swollen and bruised. No fun!! As a result, my motor function is a little bit reduced and I just don't have the control for paper piecing. Instead, I decided to create digitally (and had a fun time doing so)! I'm hoping I'll be okay again in a day or two.

It has been bitterly cold here lately. When I saw the fun winter images from Lettering Delights, I thought they'd make great cards for the kids' lunch boxes. I used some of the Lettering Delights word art but also created a hybrid card using a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Think Snow set. 

I imported the image of the sentiment into my Silhouette software and added two offsets to create the little sentiment shadow and blue outline. Once the card was printed, I stamped the sentiment. 

There are still a number of products available at My Craft Spot. Be sure to check things out and stock up on the items you want. Once they're gone, they're gone!!.
