Still working with scraps

Well, I guess winter is back! Yesterday it was 40* and raining. Today it's mid 20s and snowing. Started out with those huge wet flakes drifting down, but now it's  a finer flake and snowing pretty heavily. Not enough that you can't see across the yard, but hard enough for me to know I'm glad I don't have to go anywhere!:)

I am still plugging away at that pile of scraps and die cuts I sorted out that are laying on my work table. Seems to be a LOT of purple stuff there! Bright cheery color for a cold winter day.

PPA151 SketchMy first card today I will enter in the following challenges: Flutterby Wednesday #225, anythings goes but must have a butterfly or fairy; and Pals Paper Arts #151 a sketch challenge. I'm not really sure if  FW considers a dragonfly in the butterfly category, but it does have wings! So I'll give it a try.

The image is I think from an old card-I'm really not sure as it was in that pile of scraps and die cuts-all ready to go!
I'm trying to do some simpler cards without any glitter (gasp-no glitz!) to send to Operation Write Home-hard to keep my hands away from those Stickles!
