It's Cold Outside Baby!

Brrrrrrr... the weather is changing fast!  But you know, I actually like it : )  Of course, I would rather have the sun shining and cooler weather at the same time cuz grey isn't my favorite color!  However, it is good for my 'personal summer' heat waves I get since having a hysterectomy last year.  Wow!  In just a couple of days, it will actually be 1 year.  How time flies...  God has been merciful to me though.  Since I can't take hormones (breast cancer survivors shouldn't take them) menopause symptoms haven't been that bad.  At least I haven't had some of the horror stories you hear about.  It's no big deal!  If you are one of those horror stories, I am so sorry you are going through that :(

I have the cutest Snowman to share with you today!  I just adore him :)
This is my card for Paper Romance Challenge #22.  The image is by Laurie Furnell for High Hopes and can be purchased at Paper Romance Here.

He's colored with copics:  B05 B02 B01 B00; C9 C7 C5 C1; R24 R22 R20.  The heart on the mug and portions of his scarf have been stickled lol!  For textured snow, I used a combination of 3D Glitter Gel and Polar White Flower Soft.  Cool, huh?

Here's a close up of the pleated ribbon which is the Paper Romance Challenge this week!  I'm also showing you the snowflake which has been 'iced' with Platinum Inka-Gold and then 'iced' a second time with the 3D Glitter Gel.  A beautiful crystal rhinestone in the center finishes it off!

... and *hanging my head and blushing* I have two other cards for Paper Romance which I haven't posted yet!!!

This card was for the button challenge last week...
This image is also by Laurie Furnell for High Hopes called, Angel Bear Holding Kitty.  You can find it Here.

I decided to color her dress to match the dp!  Copics I used are:  E57 E55 E53 E51 E50; W5 W3 W1; G28 G24 G21 G20; YR02 YR01 YR00.  The wings got a nice thick dusting of Glamour Dust and the bow and flowers got the stickle treatment!  Her nose received a drop of Diamond Glaze for shine and texture.

The corner pearls were made with my Cream Paper Pen.  LOVE my paper pens!!!  Paw adorned buttons in threes for the challenge (last week) and it's ready to roll!

... and last - I know (phew!)  but think of what I'm going through trying to get this done before it's time for me to get up LOL!!!

Here's my card which never got posted for the cream, orange and black Paper Romance Challenge!!!

This is called Laurie's Pumpkin Patch by... you guessed it - Laurie Furnell for High Hopes!!!

Yep... I did some sewing on this one!  Colored with copics and accented with Stardust Stickles and Diamond Glaze.

Sorry for the shortness of this one... it's waaaaaay past my bedtime.  If I don't go to bed, I won't get up in time to workout and I'll be hearing it from my workout buddy who will be all alone......... yikes!!!

Thanks for hanging in there with me : )

I'll see you soon, my beautiful friends!  I love you ♥

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
