Challenge #25--Beat the Mid-Winter Blues--Shannah's Turn

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to a brand new challenge for the New Year here at "Sundays with Crissy"!!

It's my turn to get you all warmed up and thaw out those creative juices, because our theme for January is... "Beat the Mid-Winter Blues!" You can interpret this however you want! Escaping Mid-Winter for you could mean sun and warmth, anything that screams beach, seaside, underwater, sunny, or tropical. Or maybe you will want to make a card in all blue tones. Or even just getting some crafting time in is your way of beating the mid-winter blues! This theme is up to your interpretation!

Of course this is easy peasy for me, considering we are actually in the middle of a heat-wave LOL!! I don't really have to stretch my imagination too far here in our Aussie summer! ;)

My beautiful niece has just had her 3rd birthday, so I chose to show you the card I made for her. It looks just like her (all blonde curls and blue eyes), and of course this time of year she loves to be out in the sunshine picking the flowers... perfect for our summery theme!

This image is the adorable "Gracie's Roses" by Crissy Armstrong (of course!), and is available from Whimsy Stamps.
The good news is my niece loved her card. She held it up to herself in front of the mirror and told her Mum "that's me"! - how cute is that?? Thanks Crissy!! ;)

I'd love you to pop over to my blog Embellished ExpresShan's for a visit, and see more details about my card!

Now it's your turn to show us your 'BEAT THE MID-WINTER BLUES' cards!! There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.

You can link up you project on Sarah's post by clicking HERE. Just find the Blue Linky button and add your project! (She has all the instructions!)

Wishing you all a fabulous start to 2012!!

Hugs, Shannah xox
