Winter Wonderland Color Challenge at GI

A new year has started... New beginnings! New adventures!! I am so happy GI's challenges are back and  to be able to host the first one this year. I decided to challenge you to make a project with the following Winter colors.

I visited with my mom and dad over the Christmas holidays and I got to see some snow. We haven't had much in T.O. so it was nice to see everything covered in white. While I visited with them, I got to draw new images. One afternoon, as I was lying on my childhood bed and trying to come up with some new images; I noticed my old bear sitting on a shelf. I liked that little bear, but did not play much with him because I was never really interested in dolls and teddy bears while growing up (cars and trucks interested me more, lol!). So, I decided to make a series of images with teddy bears of all sorts. For this project, I decided to use Winter Bear who is all wrapped up for a cold winter day... perfect for this challenge.

I kind of put the snow globe together without any patterns. I like it! I hope I will remember how to do it again. The inside is hard to read. It says:

Sending you a good Canadian winter wish for your birthday
May your day be refreshing like a cold Northern wind and
heartwarming like a delicious hot chocolate after a day
playing in the snow.
Happy Birthday

The challenge starts today and ends at 10:00pm on February 2nd. A random winner will be selected and will win a $10 gift certificate from Guylou's Online Store, a one year online subscription to Through the Craftroom Door magazine and an opportunity to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges.

Please take a moment to go see what my fellow DT members did for this challenge at Guylou's Inimitability. What a bunch of talented ladies!!!
