Let it snow

Let it SNOW!

I know I really shouldn't say that by looking outside but I guess sometimes you just have to go with it! As I was shoveling all of our snow the other morning, I just felt I needed to make a sweet snowman. It was very odd, just me, 7am and everyone in the house sound asleep. I still just had to let the kid in me out while it was still pretty warm out there! We had a ton more snow the rest of the day so he is now covered and looks nothing like he did when I made it. It was fun while it lasted and I can only hope that is the last big snowfall for a while!

As for my card, My stamp is Stampin up ala carte stamp "frosty friends" You know me and I can never pass up a cute snowman stamp and this one was no different! I colored him up with Copics and added some glitter and wink of stella. Just added a white card base and clean and simple. These little guys are going to make a few happy smiles this holiday season!

Thanks for stopping by...Stay warm!

Joys of the season


More winter happiness to share today.
We received about 11 inches of snow in our first snowfall and I am hoping mother nature isn't teasing us of what is to come this winter. I don't mind some snow, but I do mind A LOT of snow!

Now to my card...Using a Hero Arts clear stamp set (sorry not sure of the name) I stamped and colored the house with my copics and added some glitter, gloss and sparkle. I used a few scraps for the sketch and put them altogether on a plain base. I inked the edges a bit to give it a little depth but other than that it was a pretty simple design. I love when I can create something simple which I love the finished product. 

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and have an amazing week to come!
Thanks as always for stopping by!

Merry Mittens


Hello sweet patient friends!
It has been one incredible year for me and I'm feeling so blessed I can begin to share my passion with everyone once again! I noticed my last post was in April and that is way too long to not have crafting in the forefront of my life!
Sometimes when life gets in the way, you just need to take a giant step back and push it aside as hard as you can. Crafting is who I am and it certainly keeps me sane with five daughters and five grandchildren!!! 
Thank you for coming back to visit. I hope I can share many goodies and create a little spark of inspiration for all of you!!

Today's creations are so fitting considering today is our first official measurable snowfall! With it, comes anywhere between 4-10 inches so we will see what happens in the morning!!! 

I used the mitten punch from Stampin Up and a few SU papers as well.  The snowflake embossing folder was offset a little to give room for the happy holidays greeting (embossed in silver). Those little bows on the gloves were a bit hard to tie but my fingers managed to do their job. Thank you very much for that fingers! The "be merry" card was designed from this weeks sketch at Splitcoast. felt that little notch in the design was perfect to hang the mittens. I do love how these two cards are completely different colors with the same punch and make such a completely different feel. 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you keep warm out there...that is if you need to!
