Wonderful Day

So it's snowing and there is an advisory up. It will turn to sleet and rain and get really ugly by mid morning. Tuesday is 48F with heavy rain and the roller coaster will continue thru the week. I am worried about flooding as we have has an unusually flaky winter (not counting the rain days). Maybe I will find a Paczki this Tuesday without having to drive to Hamtramck where the BEST bakeries are and you have to order them weeks in advance. I love lemon and there is no way I will ever eat a prune. I got my car back Saturday and my wallet hurts. Mousie best keep his distance-he is very lucky I am a no-kill-the-vermin person.

So this wonderful card was a Stacey idea. I used an Imaginisce cardstock remnant and punched the corners, inked the edges and placed on an oblong card. Used some tiny green crystals in the four corners. I also gently inked the white card in the same dark brown color from Versafine called Sepia . Then I stamped a pine cone with a branch ( Inkadinkado ) on the left using the same brown. I colored the pine needles in green. Using a clear drying glue, I filled in the pine cone and covered it with Honey Oak Elements from Art Institute Glitter and sprinkled some micro glitter over the top and shook off the extra. This gives it a snowy look.

On a scrap of cream I stamped a phrase from Sweet Impressions and backed it with a scrap of Bazzill. Pop dotted this on the right side and enjoyed the aroma of the Elements (they stay aromatic for quite a while).
