Just Chillin'...

"Winter Eskimos" provided by Doodle Pantry
This is my DT card for the new Aud Sentiments Challenge theme - a "Sentiment for a Friend."
I saw these two little chums and I could NOT resist!  I recently spent a lot of time with a good friend who is always HOT and I am always freezing my tush off!  She will wear a light weight shift & aim a fan in her direction, and I will be wrapped up in 3 layers with socks, a scarf around my neck and sometimes I add a wool cap!  We spent 2 months of our cold weather together - Just Chillin'!

Before I describe the card's details, I wanted to mention one of my favorite sites and encourage you to check it out!  I have for years been going to Gingerwood, daily and without fail!  This site is primarily a Bulletin Board for stampers - but it has other "rooms".  There is a Scrapbooking Board, a Crafty Cricket Board, a room of Stamping Techniques & Tutorials done by members, etc.  If you need a product review, are looking for the answer to a crafting issue or just want to chat with others interested in the paper arts, consider checking it out.  The community of stampers are friendly, supportive and have collectively hundreds of years of experience.  The owner of the board recently asked me to "Moderate" the boards and I decided it was time to share this home away from home with all of you!  You will need to register and get a password - [designed to keep the spammers out] - but once in, leave me a message and I will personally welcome you to our world!  I would love to see you there!  Click on GINGERWOOD.
