Challenge # 216 - Winter Blues

Brrr.  Seems like no matter where you are in the country, things are just down right chilly this winter.  We hope everyone is staying warm and snuggling up inside to watch all the big games, or with a good book or movie, and of course, some crafting in between.  That's one of the plus sides if we have to be cooped up inside, more time to get crafty!

To help us get over those winter blues, we want you to create a wintry and/or blue project (note: does not have to be monochromatic but blue should be prominent)

We have a fabulous returning sponsor for our challenge - A Day For Daisies (also known as ADFD) provides themed categories of over 1000 digital illustrations, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions. Be sure to check out what is available in the shop, and head over to the blog for some awesome inspiration!

The lucky winner will receive a $12 gift voucher to the shop

There are so many wonderful images to choose from, it's hard to narrow it down.  Here's what our team members decided on to express their winter blues, and they did not disappoint!

Such a lovely job from everyone, we hope you are inspired by our sponsor, and the team to join us and share your Winter Blues!

You have until February 1st @ 5am EST to play along!
