Warm & Cozy

     I found an image at A Day for Daisies which will show you (without any words at all) exactly what my life looks like on cold, winter nights!  :-D  As many times as I've visited the ADFD store, I don't know why I hadn't seen this image before,  Maybe it's new to them as well as being new to me.   Either way, I have it now and will use it many times, I'm sure.

    Have I shared with you that my fur babies have now decided that I must be their best friend?  It only happens in winter when they need a warm body to cuddle.

I chose my colors based on the photo inspiration at The Outlawz.

     I colored my image with ProMarkers and then used a Memory Box Stitched Squares die to cut it.  I also cut the mat with another die from that same set.  The CS for the mat was embossed using my "Linen" folder.  I used kraft CS for the card base and stitched around it with white gel pen.

     All the flowers come from my stash and I added glitter to each one.  The ribbon came from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

     I'm off shortly to have brunch with my daughter.  It's been very foggy here all morning but that's beginning to burn off so maybe we'll have a bit of sunshine this afternoon.  Happy Stamping.   NanaConnie
