Skating Along

It was a nice day today weather-wise. The wind was cold but it was above zero. I had lunch with an old friend. That was fun to catch up. I have a bunch of birthdays at the beginning of February so I am in birthday mode right now.

My card uses the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. I heat embossed the image from Great Impressions Stamps and colored it with Copics and Distress Markers. I die cut the scalloped rectangle in the background. I used two different designer papers; the penguin paper I got from a friend and the snowflake paper is from Hobby Lobby. I heat embossed the sentiment and added the ribbon. I punched the snowflakes and used Diamond Stickles to make them sparkle. I also added the Stickles to the snowflake and hat near the penguin.
I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today. More snow and freezing rain tomorrow into Saturday. I'm not too worried about this one. It's the one coming next week that's got us a little worried. I'm not sure how they know this so far ahead but they are saying anywhere from 15 - 22 inches of snow. I don't think I've ever seen that much at one time and I sure hope they are wrong.  Have a fabulous weekend!
