American Crafts Winter Canvas

All this week on the American Crafts blog we are showing off "Winter" projects.  

I have a step by step (with photos) on making this canvas here on the American Crafts blog. 

I didn't know what I would make, but I knew I wanted to include lights.  Target had really cute sets out during Christmas that are battery operated and exactly what I wanted.
The quote:  "In the Midst of Winter I Found there was within me an Invincible Summer" I found through Pinterest.  We don't have much of a Winter here, but when we do, I'm ready for some warmth. FYI, the Cameo will cut the Dear Lizzy transparencies!  Was so excited and nervous, but worked.
 Really an easy project to re-create.  And a few of the lights even twinkle!
Stop by American Crafts for the step by step and check out all of the projects from the week.  Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by!
