Gorjuss Winter Wonderland - My Crafty Heart...

Good Afternoon! Hope you are all doing ok... here is a card that I've made with some new goodies from My Crafty Heart...  Now the idea is supposed to be that this little lady is sitting on the roof looking out for Santa.... but now I am wondering what on earth she is doing up there in the cold and snow without a coat, gloves and hat!!! LOL  

I've used some scrummy papers that are new in at MCH ... My Mind's Eye - 'Winter Wonderland' - and they include some nice borders and tags etc... I've used the Merry & Bright border here.. and there are some gorgeous 'Winter Wonderland' Buttons to match as I've used here...

The Gorjuss Girl stamp is called 'On Top of the World' and I have masked the pigeons for this card... as it is winter... you don't seem to see pigeons very often LOL...they are probably snuggled up in their nest.. The snow on the roof is heated Embossing Powder ... but not sure that I would use it again.. not quite the effect that I was looking for... but one advantage is that it doesn't shed glitter everywhere... but the effect is not very even... but I'm hoping that you will think it is where Gorjuss Girl Scrambled up on the roof and disturbed the snow!!!! ROFL... 

All available from My Crafty Heart....

Aww, hope you feel better soon Sue! I think your Gorjuss girl will end up with more than a chest infection if she stays up there much longer, lol! I hope she's got a vest on!
It's a fab card; I love the little scene you've made and I think the snow looks fab.
