Happy Thanksgiving! It really does feel like Thanksgiving here in Florida as our temps dropped down into the 40s last night and is in the low 60s today. It has been so unusually warm that I was beginning to wonder if it would ever feel like fall. My husband had to work today so we had our Thanksgiving celebration together yesterday evening. We had all of our holiday favorites and enjoyed a wonderful time together. My list of things to be thankful for would be too long to list but I am especially thankful for getting to know so many of you and being a part of the paper crafting community. Oh….and for having four straight days off work.
Before I start my post let me just say a big Woo-Hoo about the specials sales going on at my two favorite stores- Impression Obsession and Ellen Hutson. I’m trying to control myself from going on over and pulling out my credit card and screaming “CHARGE”! Impression Obsession sale has already begun and you can get the details here. Ellen’s sale will begin tonight at midnight and you can click here for details.
I had made a tag a couple days ago using this sweet Snow Village designer paper and thought I would use it again since it was out on my work table. I thought it would be so cute with the tall house and bare snowy tree.
After assembling the house I painted the roof top and window panes using a tiny brush and straight undiluted white watercolor paint to create snow. I purposefully made the house a darker brick red so the snow would show up well. I painted the tree limbs and branches as well as the two crimped fir trees. I wanted everything to have that cold winter feel. I applied glossy accents and diamond glitter to the snowy areas but you can’t see the sparkle in the photos.
I couldn’t resist adding touches of evergreen and red decorations to the windows and doors. I used the fir sprig set for the evergreen decorations by cutting individual little pieces and attaching them with glossy accents. I used 1/8” punched circles for the red decoration, attached them glossy accents and covered them with red stickles. I added the multi loop bow and the two birds for the final finishing touch.
Thank you for stopping by. I wish each of you a wonderful Thanksgiving and a blessed holiday season.
