Snowflakes Make Me Smile! Day 9 of the S&S 12 Days of Christmas

4 Years ago today, I became a Mom. My son Phoenix was born at 8:32PM. What an incredible night it was. I cannot believe that he is 4 years old. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I love you, my son!!!

I have an super simple card to share today. Don’t we all need that sometimes? Super simple? Even though it’s easy, it’s pretty damn adorable!

Snowflakes-Snowman-1

I used a single stamp (Stamps Happen, Inc.) and colored it in with my colored pencils. Some plaid paper, a touch of black for some punch, and voila! Finished!

Snowflakes-Snowman-2

Isn’t he sweet? I love his patches! I know this is a short post today, but there is a lot going on… So now you can go and check out the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, posted on my sidebar. Have an inspiring day!!!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
