I created the background using MFT Star Grid stencil. I fist inked it with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink and then rotated the same stencil and inked with Picked Raspberry Distress oxide ink. It left this really neat pattern (almost mesmerizing if you look at it long enough). I die it with MFT Stitched Basic Edges 1. All the stamping was done with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. The kitties were stamped on kraft card stock and then I stamped paw prints as a border around the top of the card. The kitties and the sentiment are from the Furever Friends set from MFT. I also used the coordinating dies. The sentiment is heat embossed with Winter Wonderland embossing powder and then die cut from MFT Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips. I am entering these challenges:
- MFT Sketch challenge: sketch
- 2 Crafty Critter Crazies: use a critter
- Addicted to Stamps: anything goes
- A Bit More Time to Craft: anything goes
We had quite the shock this morning when we woke up. I had no idea that it was going to snow but Mother Nature left us a little present.
This was the winter wonderland that we saw this morning. Most of it was gone by noon although it stayed pretty chilly all day. By Wednesday they are predicting a high of 73. Nothing like yo-yo weather. And I promised some pictures of the twins last week. We took some new pictures on Saturday while they were visiting.
Valerie is holding her favorite little bear and Arthur is just being Arthur - inot everything. And he has gotten really fast. You can't turn your back on him or he disappears. And his usual smile is in place.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a lovely week!
