Let's Cool Down this Week at Pixie Dust Studio!

Whew! Is it hot where you live? I'm melting here in the Sunny South! It's not so much the heat as it's the humidity. I much prefer cool Fall days and Winter. LOVE curling up on the sofa in front of the fireplaceon a cold day! Heaven!
To help us forget about all this hot weather, the challenge this week at Pixie Dust Studio is to make a Christmas or Winter card or project. I had a hard time deciding which Pixie Dust image to color this week. Kathy has so many cute images for Christmas and winter in the Pixie Dust Studio.

I finally decide on "January Pixie". I think she is so cute! I used blue and white glittered CS as accents on the card. They don't show up so well on the photo. Double click if you want a closer look. I also used my favorite ribbon: wired Organza.
 I have a Pixie Tip for you. See my snowflakes? They were made using a MS Snowflake punch. The "arms" of the snowflake are very fragile and tend to break off. This is what I did. I took some silver wrapping paper and glued it to CS. Then I punched out the snowflakes and glued them to the card. A rhinestone attached to the center was the perfect touch of bling.
I hope you'll join the Pixies for this week's challenge! Enter your project HERE for a chance to win a Pixie Dust image of your choice and a Winner's Badge for your blog. Need some inspiration?
