think warm thoughts

so as far as winter goes - we don't have much of it in SC! but we have been feeling the bit of a cold snap lately! and 30 degrees feels SO COLD when you're used to 75! :)

either way, i was finally inspired to make a card for two challenges - lawnscaping (winter wonderland!) and pinspired (which is all about the photo below!):


so i went with the current cold temps we're having and made this SUPER fun card that i just LOVE! :)


i went with a grey scale type of card, to really acentuate the message of being warm! so i only made the fire (and the log) a color)! how fun right?! everything is paper pieced and i used a BUNCH of lawn fawn stamps - gnome sweet gnome, cozy christmas, a birdie told me, harold's abc's and winter owl. whew!


the 'grass' i heat embossed in white to make it look like snow! fun! the thought bubble and owl are popped up for dimension and i also added some pearls to make 'snow'! 
the 'warm' part of the sentiment is some old sassafrass stickers that i found in my sash! they matched the fire guy perfectly! 

so stay warm if you can! we're on our way to ice skating lessons for our big little mann! :)
enjoy!
