Hug a Veteran today!!!
Good morning! Slightly chilly here in the Illinois Valley this morning...we have been spoiled with temps in the middle 60's for quite a few days so the 30 degree temps this morning were a little shocking! Speaking of cold, today's card is a little on the chilly side! Tracey has a challenge going on at the SNR Card Universe for Stamping Boutique and she has given an image to work with. Thanks tons Tracey! The challenge is to show off our techniques for making snow! Stop on over and play along...there is a lot of fun going on there. For my card, I scored my base card with the Scor Pal...colored my image with copic markers. I used a silver Sakura Gelly Roll Glitter pen to highlight the stars and chalked a little blue on the sky. My snow is Diamond Dust purchased in the Christmas craft aisle at Hobby Lobby. I created my sentiment on the computer. I scored around the image with the Scor Pal as well and then matted it on some red card stock from Hobby Lobby. The ribbon is also from Hobby Lobby. Oh, and I finaly figured out what I was doing wrong with my pictures of my cards!! Today's card you should be able to click on it and get a larger image of it...most of my other cards to this point you would get an image the same size as originally displayed. So go ahead and click on that card!!! It looks better in a larger display. :) I am off to work today with a little anxiety...we put a new server into production last night and this is the first day for staff to be using it...all seemed to go well but one never knows...wish me luck! Thanks so much for visiting me today...your kind words keep me going. I plan on doing a little visiting myself later on so be looking for me!
