Musings And Stuff

Sorry to be so absent lately, I've been having some major issues with my chronic migraines and fibromyalgia.  I'm hoping to get back to stamping and blogging as soon as I can.

In the meantime, my family's hearts and prayers go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.

Frosty....take me away!!!

Hello and welcome.  How'd you like the little "calgon moment"?  Right now that's how I feel, however, you're not here to listen to that.

I'm sharing with you today a card I made for a few challenges using Whimsy's July freebie Top Of The Morning Snowman.  After downloading him, I printed him off at 3.5 x 5 inches so I could color while still dealing with another migraine.  Once he was printed off, I pulled out both my prismacolor and copic markers and got to coloring before layering and adding snowflake brads I've had in my stash for years.  I also paired him with some PTI designer paper I received as a gift before our move.  I then decided to pull out some never before used(NBUS)  Martha Stewart Christmas washi tape before stippling Tim Holtz broken china distress ink around the edges of the card.  I adhered the image panel using some pop dots before adding ice stickles to add some sparkle.
