HSS Winter Blues Theme #49

Good Morning Stampers!!! This weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge is “Winter Blues”. I have to say that living here in TX doesn’t really give me winter blues so much… unless you have the grey Sky’s like we have had lately. I know I shouldn’t complain about our winter, for the most part it is been upper 60’s lower to mid 70’s- yeah I know pretty wonderful. BUT I dug deep for my inspiration for this weeks project. I went straight for my MDS (My digital Studio) and played with all the blue hues we have available there…
I then chose a template and went to town. I played with tone on tone images accented with some drop shadows, I think the effect turned out GREAT!

Of course I had to add a couple of ADORABLE pics of my kids and it works great, since I didn’t do Christmas Cards this year I will send these out as a new year “Howdy”. I really like the simple layout and the mono-chromatic feel of this card. I think it brings all the focus to the kido’s and then you realize how cute the rest of it is. :)
I hope you enjoyed this weeks project and I hope you decide to head over to HSS and play along with us this week. I want to see how creative you can get with only using BLUES… how blue are you?!
Keep you eye out, I am remodeling my craft room- not to mention moving it to a whole new area of my house… once I have it completed I will share it with you all. I have some painting, sewing, furniture assembly, and of course CLEANING ahead. Hope to share it soon, and until next time~ TTFN
