Baby it's cold outside (Art by Miran image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's seems quite funny creating this card in a wintry look seeing as we are sweltering today in well over 30 degrees in Melbourne, Australia! It's going to be 37 degrees tomorrow for Christmas day, Yukkk!! I hope some of you have better weather, I know USA is getting some freezing conditions, can't we all just have a happy medium hehe???

I used a gorgeous image I've been busting to colour for ages, isn't she divine? You can find her at Art by Miran

Well, that's it from me, I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas tomorrow and stay safe & healthy for the New Year!

  14. This such a beautiful card and love the sparkles. Sorry for the late comment. I would like to invite you to link with us again for our first Challenge this year at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the encouragement found in 1 John 4:18-19 which tells us, "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us." Have a blessed day!
