Winter Can be Pretty!

Hello, crafty friends.  Julie O here today from Muddy Paws & Inky FingersIt's been a long, cold, winter here in NW WI.  I must have been thinking cold when I made this box, but it just proves, winter can be pretty!

I tried a cutting file from Lettering Delights for the first time.  As you can see, it cut very nicely on my Silhouette.  I tied it up with one of my all-time favorite 3 Girl JAM ribbons, Summer Sprinkles, from the Seasons Bundle.  I love, love, love that ribbon.  It's beautiful in a subtle, elegant, way.
Here's another view of the box and 3 Girl JAM ribbon.

If you'd like to order some of this ribbon for yourself, or any of the other great 3 Girl JAM products, use discount code JO10 for a huge 10% off your entire order!
And, to prove winter can be pretty, I have some pictures to show you of winter in WI.  These were taken over the weekend at the Apostle Islands.  We visited some ice caves on Lake Superior.

I hope you enjoyed my little taste of winter.  For more details, please visit my blog, and don't forget about the current "Anything Goes" challenge going on here.
