I LOVE Snowmen,  HATE Snow!

This image from the Stampng Boutique, "Snowfriends"  caught my attention. 

I also love making Christmas cards in non traditional colors, but the best part is using all scraps from other projects.  I hate throwing any craft stuff out,  you can always find a good use for it.

Come join us at The Stamping Boutique for our "Sparkle Challenge"

Time for warm comfort food and family gatherings.  This image sums up both for me along with the rich warm colors of Fall.  Image is Pumpkin Pie by The Stamping Boutique.  And it fits in perfectly with their challenge, "Fall Colors"  Stop on by and share with us your creativity.

I colored this with my Copics, and used my Spica Glitter pens.  I bought some wooden leaf embellishments and just love them.  Few hearts, doily and a gorgeous creation.
