  12. What a wonderful card Sara! Love your work with the metallic backgrounds, wow! The blue tones are so perfect for a wintery theme, and your contrast in tones really creates a frosty feeling! The snowflakes are a great addition, and the star centres are just amazing! A fantastic card and well put together tutorial my friend!

    We got another light and fluffy snowfall this week and I took over a thousand photos outside! I finally found the Chickadees, just a few degrees warm up in the weather, and they came flocking out from their hiding spots!! I just can't get enough of this wonderful winter we are having. Sorry I haven't replied to your email, I'm soooo bad with emails. lol sending hugs :)

Hmm, I'm thinking with all the goodies Santa brought, maybe it's a really crazy time for you since you haven't posted in a week. Hope things are OK. We need to facetime!!! Or better yet meet up! I had wanted to while I was at the beach but it was too crazy and then didn't want to interrupt your bday. Hope it was great! Hugs, Autumn
