A Little Birdie Told Me

Hello! It is a snowy day here so I didn't go to work. We didn't actually get that much snow, but it rained first and that froze before we started getting snow. I was checking out the news before leaving the house and they were saying there more than 14 cars and trucks wrecked between the five mile stretch interstate where I get on and where I exit. At one point they were saying that they would close that portion since it was a sheet of ice but all the patrol cars were working accidents! I decided it would be best to stay inside to minimize my chance of injury today.

I decided to work with an image today that reminded me of warmer weather. This is a digi stamp from Sassy Cheryl's. She has some very cute images available, lots of cute and sassy kids, and some darling snowmen. After printing my image I colored with Copics. I inked around the image with a pink ink pad before mounting it onto a piece of blue card stock because I wanted that extra color there without the added thickness that another piece of paper would have added.  My fence is a border punch from Martha Stewart and the flowers on the fence are from Joilees. The papers and card stock are from DCWV and the ribbon is from my never-ending stash!

Super colorig Gina!

That was a really wise choice, so glad you decided to stay home and be safe! And look at what a fine result. Isn't it funny how our minds work subliminally, you put down that there were 14 card wrecks . . .which would also be sad, but less expensive than a car wreck.
