A Snowy Day in "My Town"



Well... this looks like my hometown of Buffalo, NY and I know you are thinking, "No way... Buffalo gets WAY more snow than that..."

True... sometimes... BUT it is really pretty at Christmas! There is an area of Buffalo near the zoo and the homes are so pretty... I had that area in mine when I made this card.
I used the MS fence punch,covered it with liquid applique. I colored all of the buildings with copic markers and I added liquid applique to the roof tops and crystal effects to the windows for some shine. I of course, had to add glitter to EVERYTHING by way of stickles and then I used the scallop edge punch for the pink and
green paper at the top! Some dots with a gel pen
and some dots and glitter and there you have it! A snowy day in beautiful down town Buffalo! I love living in the south and I don't miss the snow...(OK, Maybe for Christmas!) It is nice to be able to create snow when you want it and still run to the store in a sweater! Have a great day filled with thoughts of home!

That looks AMAZING! I really liked that roller, but I didn't know what could be done with it. You are an inspiration!
