Chillin in Alaska


Yes it is Monday... so it is ISMAKI Challenge day! Three Magnolia design team members have joined together to coordinating a fanstastic sketch challenge site. I appreciate them being kind enough to allow those of us without Magnolia stamps to play along.
It was 43 F degrees below zero in Fairbanks today (-45 C) It feels like a cold winter card is very appropriate. I mixed some distress ink accents with a watercolor background and a center masked snowflake. Thanks for the challenge, thanks for stopping by and yes my friend who still hasn't gotten her Christmas thank you also appreciates it!
