I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week.

Welcome Winter

Well, it's official. Winter is here. I can't really complain since we had such a beautiful fall, but we had our first snow on Wednesday. And boy is it cold out! My little girl goes, "NOOO!!!" (she's trying to say snow.) I have to laugh:)

I know this is yet ANOTHER card in blues, but I'm really digging these colors right now. So you'll have to suffer with me;)

I used the sketch from CardPatterns this week.

Supplies are SU cardstock in Ballet Blue, DCWV paper from the Winter stack. Image is Greeting Farm colored in with Copics and accented with Crystal Stickles. Pearls are Kaiser. Ribbon is from my stash and I used a snowflake embossing folder and went over the embossed part with a Spica clear glitter pen.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday to My Son!

I can't believe my firstborn is almost 6 already! I really don't know how time has flown by so fast. Actually, his birthday is not until the end of December, but I wanted to put his card together early so I don't run out of time and have to do it last minute like I do everything! He saw this card kit sitting on my craft table the other day and really liked it, so I thought it would be perfect for him.

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday this week for the card.

I received these supplies in a card kit, but I added Crystal Effects to the rocket ship and the helmet of the images (colored in with Copics) and used Crystal Stickles on the stars. I also added the ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by!
