Shivering in the Midwest...

Brrrrr! It is cold...and icy....and snowy! Yesterday our high was 17...today it looks like it is going to be about 20. I am not sure that I am built to survive the Midwest and wishing that the snow fairies would come and de-ice my car...or at least go grocery shopping for me. ;o)

I have a few things (very few...LOL!) to share with you today, but first things first...
HaPpY BiRtHdAy, KaRa!!!!!
I hope that you have had a fabulous day!!!

And now a little art to share with you...this is a card based upon Amber's sketch this week over on the SCS forum. I am so glad that she is back with us and immediately got back to her sketches after her ankle surgery. I love the style of them (in fact, I love them so much I have made another project using this sketch, but you won't get to see it until hip-hop on Thursday.)

I used several different stamps on this card. The little owl journaling block is from the Our Lives, Our stories kit. The little tree branch is a cute little stamp that I just got in. It's one of those stamps (Princess floweret) that I have had in my cart at least 4 times before I finally broke down and bought it...I am so glad that I did...it's so cute! And finally the Whateva is from this month's kit of the month, Little Reminders... such a fun stamp!

For the center of each of the little flowers, I added a bit of orange glitter detail. The stamps are watercolored using my watercolor pencils and then I added a bit of white highlight with my white pen.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Little Reminders
*Unity Stamp Co. Our Lives, Our Stories
*Unity Stamp Co. Princess Floweret
*Daisy bucket paper (orange)
*SEI paper (turquoise floral)
*watercolor pencils
*orange glitter
*Memories brown inkpad

I do have a couple of other projects in the works right now that I should be able to show you soon, but quite honestly, this is where I am trying to concentrate my time...I have got to get these Christmas cards finished!!!
