watercolor pines - TGIFC82

TGIF!! I hope that you are all having a wonderful Friday! I have my Winter Stampin' Retreat on Saturday coming up and I am so excited for a day of stamping and visiting with my customers.

The TGIF82 challenge today is a sketch challenge. In Canada we have settled into winter and Autumn and Thanksgiving have long passed. I took a spin on this challenge to make it more Canadian.

I took the leaves and acorns from the sketch and changed them to pines and pine-cones ... see what I did there! I thought it was brilliant, of course.

The card greeting is subtle and frosty. I watercolored my background and allowed it to dry completely. Then I stamped the greeting with White Craft Ink and heat set it with White Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool.

Visit TGIF to learn about how you can join the challenge.

Are you in the Autumn mood where you live? Or are you into the Winter season already? I know my down under friends are welcoming Spring ... which I still can not get my head around!

Have a creative day everyone!
