We didn't have a white Christmas, but we had a heavy snowfall a few days before that turned everything white. It is also brought the traffic in our city to a crawl. I was walking along our Broadway avenue and I was passing the cars and express buses...LOL.
Anyway, for our first challenge of the 2013 year at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog--the theme is Anything Goes--I've created this card with a much a prettier scene...
I love the shape of this card. I used my new Go Kreate dies--a Christmas present to myself...LOL. I've also made this into an easel card. Views from different angles here...
I hope you'll be able to play along with us in our first challenge of the year. The theme can't be any easier than that! Don't forget to hop over the the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog for more details on the challenge and to check out what my DT teammates have created HERE.

And on another note, I just want to thank everyone who visits me and especially those that leave me such sweet and supportive comments here on my blog.
