Pink and Green

Another day in paradise, what a lovely day for winter.  Am at the end of the painting, only a little bit to go now.  Gave it a miss today, am a bit under the weather with a head cold and the usual sore throat.  Was just able to squeeze a bit of time at my desk, I wanted to try out the new heart die tag I got this week from Dies to Die for:-), luv it although Ive probably covered most of it up, never mind Im sure you will see a great deal of it over the next few months.  I also got this white scalloped pre cut card to try from them as well, looks quite cool.  Enough waffle!

Shabby Chic          Good Morning, a frosty one it is here today and a polar blast expected in the next few days so we have the wood fire roaring.
My card today is Shabby Chic, which is nice for a change.  Ive used a LOTV stamp and         distressed the edges, and the die cuts are Magnolia doohicky, and spellbinders circles.  The flowers are WOC as is the muslin and doily.  All the DPs are from Nit Wits, and last but not least I have let loose with Tim Holtz white picket fence paint and it is on everything.  Thanks for looking today, hope it is warmer where you are :-)  Hugs Denise.  The challenges I have entered today are:
Divas by Design #37 Anything Goes
Southern Girls Dying to Die Cut
Paper Shelter #66 Shabby Chic
