Weekend Sleepover!

Hello! I had 2 of my niece's over for a weekend sleepover and thought I'd share some pictures. They love visiting with all my cats, and Tiger is their favorite. Most of the others have taken to hiding for the weekend though. ;0) We baked cookies to send to their Daddy who is serving in Iraq at the moment and made some cards to go along with them.

I thought the So Sweet Cocoa, and Chef Cocoa digi would go perfectly. They colored 4 images and we've made 2 cards so far. I cut everything out and they assembled them. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Silhouette Sympathy

Hello! When I saw the color challenge today over on SCS I thought it would be good for a sympathy card. I used my Sweet n Sassy Stamps, Serene Silhouette's set for my card. I stamped my image in Versafine Smokey Gray and softly sponged around it with some River Rock ink while it was still in the die. I used this weeks Sweet Stop sketch for my card.

There was a new release today over at Sweet n Sassy Stamps, make sure you stop by and check it out! That's all for now, just waiting to see what round 2 of this winter storm brings! The first half wasn't to bad but they say we are in for freezing rain tonight. I'd rather have a foot of snow then any ice at all!
