Home for the Holidays

I created this card early yesterday, but had major computer issues and couldn't post. I finally resolved some of the computer issues this morning. YEAH! I wish I knew a computer genius! My computer would certainly keep her busy!

This card is for the "Home for the Holidays" challenge at Jingle Belles. I grew up in a state where there was always plenty of snow around Christmas time. I decided to "go home" with this card and create a snowy scene. I began by inking the sky and then I stamped the trees. I printed a log cabin image, colored it in with colored pencils and fussy cut around it. I even painted a tiny wreath and ribbon on the door. I adhered the log cabin in front of the trees and then had a blast adding snow. (I used to do landscape painting ages and ages ago. It was fun to pull out the acrylics and play around a bit.)  Over the top of the snow scene, I added a die cut frame. The frame needed a punch of color so I also added the red and white twine. I must have had one of my sister's in mind because the scene looks very similar to her first home. I loved visiting her there. It was always so peaceful and SNOWY, but warm and cozy by her fireplace!
