A Pretty "Cool" Twinkling Tuesday...


Hello everyone and Happy Twinkle Day :)

This week, I've "flipped that sketch" once again. That's the beauty of sketches...you can totally do that! What a great jumping off point my DD gave us this week to kick-start our creativity :) Gotta love it! So, I did flip the picture of the sketch so you could see it more easily, the ribbon, etc. through the middle of my card. I did have to move the sentiment from right to left because of those big pretty snowflakes I found, but other than that, hopefully you can see it :)



Another thing I'm "Flipping" over is this ADORABLE new Miss Anya that I used for today's card! If you missed our special early previews over at Club Anya last week, be sure to head over there and scroll back a few posts...you won't be sorry you did! The new Miss Anyas: Rain, Snow, Shine is being released on the 15th and boy are they amazing!!!

I just had to use this Miss Anya "snow" for today's card. I love all the fun things you can do with her cute little outfit and accessories ;) I had a great time using liquid applique for her muff, earmuffs, and fur trim and then went over the liquid applique with Martha Stewart glitter. I colored her w/ my Copics and did some shading this time that i thought turned out pretty well. There is so much to be learned with Copics! Love them!


I found that the unusual color scheme for a winter card was one of the "coolest" part about this card. I am LOVING the new Wisteria paper from Basic Grey, too...sooooo yummy! Well, I hope you like my card today...this one's on its way to Marie from The Greeting Farm because well,...she's pretty "cool" herself :)

Be sure to head on over to the TT blog today to see what our featured stamper has whipped up for us, as well all the deets on how to play along this week! If you choose to upload to SCS/pCP, please use keyword MTTSC21.

Now that you've stopped by (and thanks for doing so!), head on over to the other Twinkle Team's blogs to see what COOL creations they have up their sleeves...they are:

Thanks again for stopping by and have a VERY Twinkling Tuesday!

I love those colors and that darling snow. As much as I didn't like it when it was coming down in masses here... LoL.

My 2 year old Nicky said he'd love to choose colors for a color challenge if there's ever a need for temp twinkies again. Let us know!
