Inside a Snowglobe

It's time for another Morning Chat Challenge. Every 2 weeks over at Butternut Sage Designs we have a challenge to test our creativity.  This time we decided to do a SNOWGLOBE.  You can see the other designs on the Butternut Sage blogsite.  Some of the gals have created their snowglobes from scratch, but I decided to use my Stampin'Up! SWEET SNOWGLOBE stamp.  How you work it is all in your interpretation.  Here is a little sneak peek of what I created:

My inspiration came from a front yard I pass on my way "to town" where I travel for groceries etc.  This yard is just as you go around a curve, and so for a period of time your car is aimed straight at the yard.  Every holiday the owners tantalize us with wonderful decorations.  Large blow up pumpkins, trees decorated with Easter Eggs, 4th of July flags, Valentine cuties, you get the idea.  At Christmas they have a huge blow up snowglobe with a snowman inside.  There is whirling snow and everything.  Well, I love the cute little penguins in Polar Party and decided my take on the yard snowglobe would be penguins in a globe -- one stuck inside the globe and one outside.   Here is the entire front of my card.

Of course, when you open the card you will see that the penguins have figured out how to be together.  I hope you like my take on the neighborhood yard snowglobe and the latest Morning Chat Challenge.

Come join us Mon - Thur morning at 10:00 a.m. Eastern and join in the fun.  You'll find us at    Hope to "chat" with you soon.

Come back to my blog soon, and please leave a comment.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.
