Sending Warm Fuzzies!


Good news – the bitter cold weather is going to end this weekend with temperatures right around the freezing mark! At 3:00 am (yes, middle of the night) it was -20C (-4F) and felt like -32C (-25F).and dropping!

Bad news – the warm weather is bringing in a major snowstorm!
I’ll be a happy camper when spring comes!

Today’s card is with a now retired stamp from Art Impressions but it may be available on their website until supplies last. I just ordered a few more of them from there….their shipping rates to Canada is only $15.00 whereas Spellbinders charge the same to Canada as to Europe. I had also picked out about 10 small dies from Spellbinders site that totalled about $104.00 and they wanted $49.50 to ship them. Ridiculous.  Order cancelled.

Anyway, end of rant, back to the card. 


I used this stamp in so many different cards. The image was coloured with pencils; blended with gamsol; as per my favourite way of colouring images. I sponged some yellow chalk around it and light brown by her slippers. This time I simply ran a piece of blue cardstock through the big dot embossing folder for the background piece; die cut an oval – Spellbinders die; and glued the image behind the opening. It’s mounted on a yellow card base. The banner was hand cut and the sentiment came from another stamp set. This should bring a smile to the recipient’s face…at least I hope so.

That’s all for a bitter cold Friday, January 5, 2018.

Have a wonderful and safe weekend everyone and I’ll be back on Monday with another posting.

Cheers

Violet

Aaaawww.. thats so cute Violet... i bet theres alot of us out there that need warm fuzzies right now..brr.... We are having a 'warm ' stretch...At least we are above freezing which feels pretty warm right now.. lol I'm so glad you found a place that has better pricing... $50 for shipping .. thats just nuts..

Most things i buy i get from Amazon... I have found them fairly reasonable. My sister in law has a 'Prime' subscription with them so we get free shipping on most things.. I think she pays $99 a year for that but she buys online alot so the free shipping pays itself off quickly.. I hope you don't det buried in too much snow :) Hugs! deb
