Warm wishes

LOL....I stamped this image last Tuesday. Then all the sickness happened, & when I went to finally work on the card today, I forgot what I was going to do with it!!




Oh yeahhhhh......Ila's fabulous sketch on her Magnolia blog....Sweet Magnolia's!! THAT'S what I was doing! Ok, then......I knew I *had* to use my new Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper....I'm so glad I bought 2 pads. I shoulda bought all they had!! I got mine at my LSS because I had a credit (free stuff!!) but you can buy all the Eskimo kisses paper & accessories at 7 Kids College Fund HERE. I used SU's Riding Hood Red & Pink Pirouette for the mattes. The image is Tilda & Edwin on Ice.....colored with pencils & gamsol....added glitter to the snow. The sentiment is from Studio G.....the snowflakes in the upper right are Spellbinders, the one in the lower left is a Martha Stewart punch....all are covered in Diamond Dust. Oh!! And this is the first time I used my Martha icicle punch!! That will get a LOT of use in the coming months!! I did leave off a few optional parts of Ila's sketch, but I think I'll be using this one again!! She always has the greatest layouts on her cards!



A close up of the warm & fuzzy pair.....




And a close up of the snowflakes. I wasn't too sure as I was cutting out the dies that they were even snowflakes!! I was getting some funky shapes!! But I guess when you put them all together, they resemble a snowflake :)

Thanks so much for visiting....on to my next project, my High Hopes challenge card for yesterday!! Hopefully it won't take me another week to get that done!!!! Hmmm...the theme is lots of layers. Think they'd notice if I used this card? LOL!!!

Hi Michelle! Wow, I've been out of touch on so many things in this great blogland - I just found out that you are on the 7 Kids DT! I've loved seeing your Magnolia cards on SCS for a long time! Awesome job on this one BTW, as always! Looks like Tab is very lucky to have 3 WI girls now! I'm originally from Milwaukee ... small world. :) Looking forward to working with you! hugz, Mary
