Are you tired of the COLD yet?

Well don't throw in the towel on cold weather just yet because this week, we need you to show us COLD! But more on that in a minute.

First, this is the last week for entering the monthly challenges so ALL ENTRIES MUST BE IN BY 10:00 pm EST this SATURDAY, Feb. 26th!  This is also the last week for our sponsors for the month so a great big thank you to Sandra Strickler and Shirley Ross! We will be drawing winners of their great prizes before next week's challenge and you could be one of the lucky two! Get those entries in!

Now on to this week's challenge. We want to see your artwork that makes you think of the word COLD. This can be shown in the image you use or the colors you use or whatever way you interpret cold. I think you'll get the idea when you see what the DT created so let's get to the artwork!

First up, our sponsor Shirley is joining us with some "chilly" artwork:

Beautiful card Shirley! Thanks for playing along with us!









Did you know you can intrepret one word in so many fabulous ways? Now it's your turn! Create your artwork and be sure to include Close To My Heart products (this is a requirement!) then leave a direct link to your post (not to your artwork photo - we would like to leave you a comment so we need a link to the post with the artwork). Enjoy creating!

Just entered for this week! My card had to be quick...I was in a rush, but I had such pretty Echo Park snowflake paper that I didn't want to do much else to it, nor hide it with any other embellishments!
