New Year Blessings

Happy New Year to all of you this fine very cold day. 27 degree's this morning.
Oh burrrr cold. But not as cold that many of our USA friends in the Midwest and East
are enduring minus temps. My friend in Wisconsin had a high of minus 17 a couple days ago.

I so enjoy my card making time. I listen to books on CD's and that makes the time more fun.

I love this image stamp of Edwin and Tilda ice skating, with the happy snowman in the background.
I colored the images with Copic pens.

I blushed the fences with Bashful Blue SU color with a sponge to give the feel of cold.
The tree branches are cut from SU Bashful Blue also. Stick pin and pearl flowers from my stash.
The verse gives us encouragement for the beginning of a New Year.  

I am entering this card in these challenges:
Twist Of Faith ~ New Beginnings, Anything Goes
