Snow Buddy. -Craft Hoarders Anonymous.

Hello and good morning...

If you haven't checked out the Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge blog yet, you really should. They have switched it up a bit, and there is just one monthly challenge, which will be posted on the second week of the month.

This month is a bingo card to use.
I came up with this wintery fun page, and used a really older photo of my son playing in the son.

I actually used the leftover scraps from the December Apron Strings card kit for this layout.
I punched some snowflake, added a metal word and inked the chipboard button and added some twine:

I got a bit messy on the background- with some gesso and then misting with a mask, and used a few different shades of blue:

Then I punched the bottom paper just for a bit of pop on the bottom:

Choose Your Challenge
Create any type or style of project you wish, as long as you pick ONE (1) item from each category in the chart below! Choose your cardstock, printed paper, or other base (box, canvas, tray, etc.). Next, choose your adhesive. Finally, from the chart below, choose your coloring medium, fiber, technique, texture, and embellishment for your project! The combinations are almost endless! (You may choose more than one item from each category, but you MUST have AT LEAST ONE from each!) Pull out those hoarded products, have fun, and welcome to a NEW YEAR at Craft Hoarders Anonymous!
