Snowfall Friends

I gotta say I just Loooove Whipper Snapper.This image just sucked me in.You can find it and my card at Creative Accents. I also love this paper line from Bo Bunny. Yep gonna be using it a lot.Browns and of my favorite color combos.

I colored up this pair with one and only coloring medium ! LOL.There's no other way to go ..for me that is...I have tried many others and this has been the best investment for me.That's what i keep telling my investment hun ! ! I do use them continuously ,they don't sit on the shelf begging for attention.They are not just for coloring images but you can color gems,flowers and much more!...ok enough sales! LOL

Warm Wishes from my favorite monkey!


Yes I have said this time and time again..he's one of my favorite monkeys.Can't help myself. LOL
He's from High Hopes Stamps.I teamed him  up with Authentique's papers.These are sooo not Christmas or snow papers but I think it worked. I just love the blue and brown combo. I promise to use some other colors. 
I also used High Hopes mitten border stamp in the corner.They are so quick to color and easy to cut out.I bought these cute clothespins and just had to hang those mittens. Those cute wood snowflakes were covered in Picket Fence distress stain and the spritz with a blue Smooch Spray.

Ok I got a cute close up of the liquid applique ,...had to show.

Looks real excited eh?...bahaahaaa

You're my Treasure..xoxo

Good morning ...This week at Scrap-Creations we are going sentimental.
We want to see SENTIMENTS as your main focus on your card.
My card definitely a sentimental card as it is a sympathy card .My Aunt passed away a couple of days ago so I've been trying (and I stress that) to make my family cards.It has been a lot more difficult that I had anticipated. I've never been a fan of making these cards but even more now.

On my card..a few details...papers and sentiment are from Kaisercraft. The swirl chipboard and butterfly is from Twiddly?? something.Sorry can't remember as I'm typing.I inked and spritzed them up. I wanted this card to be that simple and elegant type.

Hope to see you join us for now..
Take care.
