Stay Warm, My Friend

     I think one of the best ways to stay warm and cozy in cold weather is through the magic of friendship.  When the heart is warmed with the love of friends, the whole world seems cozier.  I think this delightful image (From the Heart Stamps) really makes that point.  :-D  So, this card is for all my friends in blogland.  May your holidays be warm and cozy.


My sketch came from "I {heart} Sketches" (reversed)
and I took my colors from the challenge at "Sisterhood of Crafters."

Sketch131  

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, added glitter and Snow-Tex, then die cut it with a plain square die and punched the corners.  I added a die cut behind it (a left over from another project) and matted that with some dp from DCWV's Winter Magic stack.  The dark blue paper with the silver snowflakes in the background is also from that same stack.  I added the hand-sewn bow for a tiny bit of embellishment and dimension.

     Well, we're down to the last weekend before Christmas and one week after that, it'll be the New Year!  I have no idea where 2015 went but I know it went waaay too quickly.  At this rate, I'll be 100 before I know it.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
