Perfect Sentiments – A Winter Farewell

This weeks challenge at Perfect Sentiments  is to create a card with a sentiment for winter / use a winter image or any embellishments, embossing folders, etc. To give your card a winter feel. Go ahead and think outside of the box if you want to....cups of cocoa, etc. A bright, cheery wintery card will definitely warm the heart of your recipient! This is a special challenge for me this week as it will be my last challenge as a design team member with Perfect Sentiments. I have enjoyed this group of ladies and have been blessed to learn from them over the past year. I'll be diving back in to my book project "52 Parables", be sure to check back for updates on that project very soon!   Our FULL STORY HERE....... Read more
