It's been quite cold lately. I've had to scrape ice off the windscreen of the car in the mornings, and every time you stick your nose out of the door, you just want to retreat back inside. But that's ok, we are almost through January, and not many months now until spring. Days are getting longer. Soon it will be light when I leave for work in the morning. And even better, soon it will still be light when I get home, which means I will be able to get a bit more decent photos of my cards again! Yay!! I'm also saving up for a new camera, as my old one has really bad scratches on the lens and photos come out with strange blotches on them. I'm so excited about the prospect of a new camera, and am desperately trying to decide what I want. That's part of the fun, spending all the time online reading reviews and comparing cameras.
Today's card is inspired by the fun challenge over at Daring Cardmakers with the theme "You can leave your hat on". Hence the cute little cap on the happy dino. I used the colours over at ColourQ and the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. I was also inspired by the theme over at Lawnscaping, which is "Stamp your own background". I stamped the snowflakes for the background using white ink, and added some Perfect Pearls for a subtle glimmer. It doesn't show very well on the photo, but looks quite cool especially when it hits the light at the right angle.
