Papercrafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Blog Hop

A Special Thank You to Papercrafts & Scrapbooking Magazine 

Hello and welcome to the blog hop today! Today's post is both a happy and sad one. I'm so happy to be joining over 200 bloggers to share our love of Papercrafts & Scrapbooking Magazine! But I'm also so sad that Papercrafts & Scrapbooking Magazine will soon be shutting it's doors. This magazine has been a source of inspiration to me for many years and it will be missed SO much! I always had a subscription - almost right from the beginning and have browsed every issue from cover to cover more than once! I want to take this chance to say THANK YOU to all the staff who helped to inspire over the years - and to all those who contributed their creations each month! It was truly a beautiful magazine and will be very much missed!

Thanks snow much!

So... to lighten the mood a bit, I'm sharing this whimsical thank you card! I used the sweet kitty buried in the snow from the Winter Tails stamp set.  I colored the kitty and added a bit of blue tint to the edges of the snow drift with copic markers. Then I fussy-cut out the image along the top edge and layered it on top of a piece of patterned paper that had snowflakes on it from my scrap pile. I then stamped the sign with the "thanks snow much" sentiment inside it on a separate piece of paper and colored it with copics. I fussy-cut this out and added it on with some dimensional dots so it pops out from the first layer. I added some little sequins for a sparkle among the snowflakes and I added some glitter along the edge of the snow. For the base layer of the card I used a piece of subtly patterned brown paper and some fun blue and white metallic striped washi tape!

I hope that if you're feeling down about Papercrafts and Scrapbooking closing that this card helped make you smile a little today! I know that the spirit of the magazine and all the creativity inspired by it will surely live on! 

If you started at the beginning of the hop - you've got just a few stops left - if not, you can always go back to the first post  - it starts at Jennifer McGuire's blog. Make sure you've got some coffee - and sit back and relax while you page through all the inspiration.
