Let It Snow


Good morning friends!  Happy Saturday!  Who has fun things to do today?  I hope it includes lots of fun crafting!

I have been really blessed recently that my weekend hasn't been too overflowing with things to do.  That really gives me the change to get ahead on things...like this card.  I made it for this week's Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge two weeks ago.  Go me!

The paper for this card is from Cosmo Cricket's Mitten Weather pack.  I love the coziness of the plaid and dots and those mittens?  Adorable...at least I think so.  The word art is from Meljen's and I believe it was a freebie awhile back.  It is always fun to receive Meljen's freebies!  What you can't see in the photo is that I used lots of Gelly Roll pen on the little swirls, dots, and lines on the image.  It is really shimmery in real life.  So fun!

I hope you'll join us for the sketch this week!  You can see that I flipped the sketch but either way it is perfect for so many main images!

Okay, and before I link you up to my design team sisters I had to share a photo with you.  Trixie loves to sit in front of the heating vents in the house so I removed the bin of paper that I had under my crafting table and put her blankets (old pillow cases but I'm going to get her a blanket for that spot) right by the heater.  It has taken a couple of days but it is now a spot that she likes to lay in when I'm in there.  As a matter of fact she looks almost exactly like that photo as I'm typing this post up!

Okay...now get along and visit my design team sisters...I know they have made beautiful projects for you all to see!

Thought of the day: The only way to have a friend is to be one.  I think I have some e-mails to send!

LOVE this card. Those little mittens are so sweet, too! I came by here this morning to look but have not had a chance to comment until now. The boys ran me ragged today! I am looking forward to a nice hot bowl of soup and snuggling with my hubby on the couch. Trixie inspired me with all of those blankets, I am going to go sit by the heater too! :)

Cute card! Guess you were thinking about snow when you made it. Hope the storm out there wasn't too bad. Trixie looks like she's ready for a long winter's nap. Have a great week!

What a pretty little card. I love the addition of the mittens.
Trixie looks so cute wrapped up next to the vent. My dog tanner does the same thing :)
