Furever Friends

It's the start of the new week and already it's been a busy one! Hope your week is off to a good start! This afternoon I got to play some more with my new Distress Oxide inks. And after watching another video from Jennifer McGuire I came up with a couple of backgrounds. Si I used one for a card this evening.

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:

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!

Love your card and the great stenciled background. I love this technique- have made a few of them! Darling pics of the twins- so fun you get to spend so much time with them and still get so much stamping done!

What a cute card and a creative technique! I think I saw that video.
Love the colors that you used and the kitties are so cute!

Oh my goodness, the twins are just darling! The race is on, they will sure keep you on your toes!

Snow, although I think it is beautiful, this is supposed to be SPRING! It has been cold and rainy here, today is sunny and supposed to warm up. I believe 80 was mentioned for later this week. Maybe I can get my tomato plants out.
