Playing in Paradise #96 - Winter Birds


NEW LOGO

Happy Friday! You have got to go check out the new blog look over at the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog. New layout, new photos: it looks marvelous! I am seriously in love with my new profile shot :)
I'm the hostess for this week's challenge, and we'd like to see your creations using Winter Birds! I've given a peek into how I like to upcycle old Christmas cards - but you'll have to head over to the blog to check it out!
PPC #96
Here are the finished cards I shared today:

Supplies: paper & tag from My Mind's Eye; standard small & lacy circle Nesties; carrara marble glitter from Martha Stewart; crocheted mat by me



Supplies: papers from Echo Park; standard small Oval Nesties; clear glitter from Martha Stewart; EK Success corner rounder punch (for scalloped edges); Colorbok glimmer paper. 


Oooh, sparkly!
Joining us as a guest designer this week is my pal Nance from Soul Stampin' - go check out her card & leave her some love on her blog too!
Have you got some Winter Birds ready to go on a project? Link it up with us by December 13th for a chance to win a fabulous prize & be a guest designer with us :) And don't forget to stop by & see what my teammates have created:

Tonight is Sackville, NB's second Midnight Madness event - I'll be tucked into my usual spot inside the Bridge Street Cafe, and you KNOW they've got lots of Eggnog Gelato made up! Come on in & say hi if you're out & about tonight :)
xoxo,
Jessi

Oef, I've missed soooo many cards! But I had a great time looking back at all of them and you've made such beauties! Love these scenes here, but also the funny penguin and I was really laughing out loud when I saw the yellow snow card!! Ha ha! Well, we've been quickly getting in the christmas atmosphere here, 'cause it's snowing like crazy here today... Oef! Wasn't completely ready for that... Hope all is well with you and thanks for sharing all your beautiful cards!!!
Hugs, Wendy

What a great challenge! I LOVE birds and your cards are so PRETTY! Love how you've added the crocheted mats! It really makes them special. Crocheting is a second love of mine.
