Winter Wishes

The theme today at ABC Christmas Challenge is 'Winter Wishes'.  I've used Sabrina from our sponsor, Saturated Canary which is not a winter image, but I've coloured her in frosty colours and used my lovely Silent Night papers (again!).

Hmm, I admit that she might not exactly be dressed for winter, but hopefully no-one will pick up on the fact that she might be a bit chilly in that skimpy dress!  A scarf, hat and gloves might not go amiss.

That's probably an age 'thing' though, because I remember when I was younger going out into town for a night out with my pals dressed in similar attire, even if the paths were covered in frost.  The youngsters still go out in their skimpy frocks, whereas now I would wear more to go to bed!!

I layered all of my Silent Night paper panels onto shimmer kraft coloured card, wrapped around some textured white wool and added some white pearls.

I seem to be on a C&S drive with my Christmas projects at the moment (take a look at Monday's post for C&S extreme) but I might need to have an embellishment frenzy tomorrow to make up for it!!   :0)

I love your little 'summer' beauty, but if she was my girl she should wear more clothes ;). She is coloured so beautiful, Annette,
enjoy your evening,

So gorgeous hon... and you really made me smile when you said you go to bed now wearing more!

I think her summer flowers may give her away too, nevermind the skimpy dress... But she really is gorgeous so you can get away with it!

I had to smile, Annette, about going out in the cold wearing something skimpy...I think we all did it!
