Winter is almost gone from our area.. I hope and that Spring is well on it's way here, but I had taken these photos of these two during a brief snow shower and just loved them, so enjoy!






My project features my favorite Prince and Princess.... Two of our Grandchildren and my two natural grandchildren..
Emily is trying to catch snowflakes on her tongue! Royce, who is experiencing snow for the first time wasn't sure what to make of it! He curled up his nose and tried to see what was hitting his face! Elsa from Frozen seemed to be the perfect match and I love how her hand looks like she's caught Royce! I used my old Expression 1 for this project. You know, that old machine is a work horse and I take it to crops, just in case something happens.. and I don't need Wi-Fi! I just loved how details like those small tiny snowflakes cut out so well!! I added some bling to the centers! The paper is from a stack called Frozen and Elsa happens to be on the reverse side, but I love the paper piecing!! You can just make the designs your own! Frozen and Elsa is from the Cricut Frozen cartridge. Thanks for stopping by today and head to the next blog before your coach turns into a pumpkin!! Oh wait,, that's not Frozen! Let It Go - and have fun! :)

    I made this cute little slider card with a Close To My Heart Stamp Set. That little doggie is sure enjoying his ice cream and heading for the large one on a slider made with a penny! I used the Shin Han Markers from CTMH to color the card. The slider is easy to do and if  you Google Slider Card, you will see numerous versions of how to do it! Quick and easy!! Thanks for stopping by my blog today! And I hope you have the best birthday ever!
