Good morning everyone. I have been MIA for the past week. I left last Wednesday to visit with my sisters and my dad and just got home last night. We really had a wonderful time together again. We got some card making done, sponsors scheduled, of course, shopping, walking and visiting. Judi and I walked in a snow storm and when we got back to the house, we had a pocket full of snow in our pockets as big as a snowball.

After helping Arlana with her Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog,
I have a whole new appreciation for all her hard work in keep it
up. There are many hours put in to keep things running.
She is doing a wonderful job!! Thank you Arlana. If you haven't
seen her blog stop on over here. You will love the DT work.
They are awesome!!
Now for our sponsor this week: "The Digi Stamp Boutique"
We just love Sally Ann's images. They are just darling.
Sally Ann is offering $15.00 to the winner of the challenge
this week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Hope to see you there!

This is "Winter Sophie" I used glitter on the snowflakes
and snow. It is hard to see it in the picture. But it really
made the card come to life. She is such a sweet image.
I used Copic marker: E00, Y15 and RV14. Stampin Up Ink:
Rose Red, Pink Passion, Pretty In Pink, Yoyo Yellow and
Chocolate Chip.
The paper is from The Paper Co. and DCWV Designer Pack.
I accented the card with rhinestones and Ribbon.

The card below is called "Christmas Robin."
I used paper from The Paper Company and Copic markers:
YG03, E09, E37, RV14, R29, B32 and Black. I also used light blue
Pastels from Stampin Up on both cards. After taking the pictures
for this card, I changed the blue panel. I used my Swiss Dots
embossing folder to accent the blue. I didn't have time to retake
the pics, but it did make a difference.

I hope you have a wonderful week!
Thanks for visiting my blog.
