Happy Winter????

Happy Thursday Afternoon!
Sorry I'm late posting today. I was beginning to think I'd never get here....lol
This morning I started this card first thing but then had to stop to take Brian to the doctor. When I got back, I continued with colouring the image. Then I had to go work lunch program, grocery shop and stop back at the school.
Finally, it's done! YAH!
Now I know...Happy Winter???? Seriously eh?!
I figured since there seems to be so much winter weather going on around us, it would be OKAY to make a winter card today....haha!
This is a Paper Pretties Stamp and it's from the set called Snowflake Kisses.
I stamped it in Versafine Black and coloured it with my Prismacolour pencils and blended with Gamsol. I really like the look of Real Red and Cool Caribbean together. It was and added bonus that I found some of these felt mitten brads that Brian had bought me. They match perfectly!!
Stamps: Paper Pretties Snowflake Kisses
Cardstock: Cool Caribbean, Real Red, WW
Inks: Versafine Black Onyx and Real Red
Accesssories: Prismacolour Pencils and Gamsol, Striped Red Ribbon, Photo Corner Punch, Paper Piercer, Word Window Punch, 1", 1 1/8", 1 1/4" Circle Punches, Dimensionals, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Misc Felt Brads
Thanks for stopping by today!
I'm working on a few more cards and hope to post them later this evening or tomorrow morning!
