I'm A Good Friend To Ewe

Hey everyone! What a fabulous snowfall we had yesterday! It was just so gorgeous and fun! It was heavy and wet; perfect for playing in. I made a few snow angels and three snow men!

Here is pretty snow clinging on pine branches

Here is Riley enjoying being in it

A snow angel - if you look closely you may see my halo! LOL!

and here's my cute snow couple

and here's my last and biggest snowman (with a little photo shop humor I asked Chesney to do for me)

I actually didn't do any card making yesterday! I guess it was a day for re-charging my creative battery because I had no desire to make anything. I went an looked at all the cards the Squigglefly Design Team did for their challenge and they are all so wonderful! The challenge is to create a shaped valentine using non-traditional colors.

I do have a card to show you though that I made last week for the Friday Sketchers sketch, and as I was looking at challenges yesterday I see it also fits Crafty Cardmakers challenge to use something digital!

(click to enlarge)

I used the funny Sweater Shedder image that Chesney Young drew. It's colored with copic markers and I tried to get a little creative with the chair, and of course the sentiment is computer generated. I can't help but chuckle that his sweater is magically dyed as he knits!

I hope you have a fantastic day, and thanks for looking!

Oh your "Holly & Brock" snowmen look so content, but your halo on the snow angel needs some bling, luv! We didn't get a single flake! Hard to believe that just 10 mi from here, they got 6"! Not fair...NOT FAIR AT ALL!!! :)

I LOVE your card, and those colors you used are FABULOUS together! That Chesney really can draw! LOVE what you did with the chair! Such an ADORABLE card! ;)

Stay warm!

I can't believe you have snow down there. I live in cenetral BC and it is a balmy 11C. and that is pretty nice. ( no snow.). I look forward to your cards each day. Love your cards and I have learned so much from your tutorials. Thanks again Holly

Everything is magical in the digital & marker world. I think that's why there are so many crafters. You can do anything you want. LOL. This is great. And I'm so jealous of your snow. Not a drop this year for us and it's 64 out and dang it I want a snow day!
