Three Snow Friends

Happy Friday everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Another weekend is upon us and I hope you have some fun plans.

Tonight my son and daughter-in-law are taking me to the theater in Pittsburgh to see the production of War Horse. We are going to a great restaurant in downtown for dinner before the theater. I will let you know tomorrow all about it.

This has been a new release week for Great Impressions Stamps. The design team has been showing great cards all week. Drop by the blog, there are prizes to be won.

My sample today is done with 2 new stamps -three snow friends J107 for my image. I colored these with prismacolor pencils and gamsol and paper pieced the pink scarf and hat. Added some polar white flower soft on this panel. The snowflakes are glittered with a clear Sakura glitter pen.

The background snowflakes are falling snowflakes E772 and stamped in Stampin-Up's marina mist ink.
The blue panels are marina mist card stock anddesigner pape. I used a Sizzix snowflake embossing folder.

The card layout is from this week's Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge #411. 

Added some mesh ribbon over the top red panel. That's my card for today so until next time....... God bless!!!!!
