It's Groundhog Day.... again!

I so love that  movie.... Bill Murray is tops!  Anyhoo.... at For Fun Challenges this week, as Groundhog Day is here, we are so themed.... is the groundhog going to predict an early spring or 6 more weeks of winter?  Judging by the weather reports of snow, and having just seen a white Chicago, I'm guess Phil saw winter staying on!   So we challenge you with a creation of your prediction.....Spring? or Winter?

Here is my creation - WINTER! I chose winter not because I love snow, and rarely get to see it, but because here in Australia (currently dancing with cyclones, bushfire, floods and the remnants of locust plagues!) we will definitely see winter in June, before our spring in September! 

Ingredients used: Cardstock - Rosies, DCWV;  Chalks - Pebbles Inc; Aqua Promarker; Stardust Pens, White Glaze Pen - Sakura; Metallic Chalk Ink - Colorbox; Rhinestones - Kaisercraft; Irridescent Glitter Glue - Papermania; Brads - Craft Affair; Goggle eyes;  Crushed Velvet ribbon.

I coloured the image with chalks (background and dirt), water brushed promarker (groundhog), stardust pens (clothes), and white glaze pen (snow).  When the snow was dry, I also added irridescent glitter glue as well... I used Silver and Ice Blue bling for falling snowflakes, and I couldn't help but put goggle eyes on the little fella....  I edged the card matts with silver chalk ink, before layering them together and securing with brads.  I added tabs of crushed velvet ribbon, and left space for sentiments.

We have an awesome sponsor Little Scraps of Heaven, offering an awesome prize to our winner.....a $25 gift voucher to the LSH store! nd how cool is it, that Tricia, created the images for our Design Team to use just for this challenge! If you'd like the Spring and Winter images we used, Tricia is offering them free at the Little Scrap of Heaven blog.

So do enter our challenge at For Fun, for the chance to win a great prize, and it would be super if you would use the free images created just for the challenge! Thanks for peepin'!

Fantastic card - love the google eyes and bling for snowflakes. I also need to remember that technique you used for the ribbon - I have so many scraps!

Phil did not see his shadow today so supposedly spring is on it's way. I'll believe it when I see it!
