We have been friends together
In sunshine and in shade.

While all my family members up North are enjoying the fall weather and changing leaves, here's what's going on in central Texas.
Well, I just won't have any more of this.
I'm staging an intervention.
There, feels cooler already, right?
(Here's the inside.)
Actually, I skipped past Halloween and Thanksgiving right into Christmas for a very good reason, Vera Lang's Caring Hearts Card Drive.
I'm freaky excited that Vera Lang is going to be a guest blogger here at Catered Crop later this week. She's such an amazing, talented paper craft artist, she's going to really class up this joint. I'm so excited I feel like I need to clean this place up and get out the good dishes. It's going to be a very special treat to have her here. Please be sure to come back and give her a big Catered Crop welcome.
The Bargello technique I used on this card is a fun technique. It's a lot like piecing together a quilt with paper. I discovered it at Technique Tuesday, where's there a great tutorial.
I love this recent trend of using the positive and negative spaces created with die cuts. Inspired by some of the projects in my Accentuate the Negative Pinterest board, I used the negative space in the rectangle die cut to create a window in the front of the card to the snowman in the back of the card. Hint, hint, you'll see this trend soon for one of our Catered Crop Recipe Swaps.
Here are the Copic Markers I used for my Swanky Snow Dude and the rest of the recipe.
I'll see you in just a few days with Vera! Stay cool.Pin It
