Step Sister project for Sisterhood of Crafters

Good day

This is a special project for the Sisterhood of Crafters' challenge this week. The challenge is winter wonderland/snowflakes. I used Blue Jay from Fred She Said and I had to Google it to colour it. Cannot remember if I saw one in my life. I had to admit it was quite difficult to set my mind on snowflakes when it is 30°C outside. My gingham is from Graphic 45 French Country collection and the snowflake paper is from my stash. The sentiment is taken from Desert Diva and says Enjoy your Day. I used a pop-up punch for the snowflakes and some confetti snowflakes on the edge with pearls. I have dig out some of my forgotten corrugated board to give some dimension.

I used the following challenges as inspiration:
Just Us Girls #224 - Colour combo
Shopping ou Stash #135 - Winter blues
Digi Makeover Challenge #124 - Snowflakes
Digi Sketch Challenge - One for the men ( I turned the 90° to the right to fit digi)
Kaboodle Doodles #206 - Use Blue
Love to Create #99 - Use Buttons
The Cutie Pie Challenge #61 - Cute and blue (hope it is cute enough)
Anyone for Anya - January Challenge - Corrugated board

Hope you will come and join the Sisters (& little brother) in this fortnight's challenge!

I also want to thank the Darlene once again for inviting me to be part of their team for this month. Thanks Darlene!!
Have a fantastic day!
Hugs from Africa.

You are SO WELCOME and we were thrilled to have you & your talents with us at The Sisterhood!
Sorry to put you through doing SNOWFLAKES when you're in the summer heat (never thought about that ... oops ... lol) but you pulled it off and did a BEAUTIFUL JOB! If you want to see REAL Blue Jays come to my house! Our little wooded area behind the house if filled with Blue Jays, Cardinals, Gold Finch ... and many other beautiful birds (probably because I feed them so well).
Thanks again for being our Step Sister in January ... it's been a pleasure having you!
