Another Beauty

I am so in love with the Wee Stamps digi's!
This is Heidi one of her newer digi's.  Paper is a pack I got at Target.  Did everyone go Black Friday shopping?  We did!  We got up at 3 and headed out.  Luckily the stores we "needed" to go to we knew weren't going to be a disaster and we got all the things we went for and were home by 7 and then I took a nap!

The Stamping Boutique Challenge 20

The latest Stamping Boutique Challenge is Thanksgiving which is my favorite holiday.  I'm not going to lie I love the food!!!! 
I used Audrey the Pilgrim.  Love the Audrey and AJ line.  Colored with Copics.  The leaves I picked up at Wiggles & Giggles a LSS not to far from me.  We are spending Thanksgiving at Mark's mom's so no big cooking for me just a side dish she loves.  Hope everyone is having a great week.  Check out the Challenge Blog and see the other team members amazing cards!

High Hopes Angel

One of my all time favorite stamp lines is High Hopes, I just love them! 
I colored this with Copics and added Stickles to her wings and collar.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid and I added Stickles to the edges of the roses. Hope everyone had a nice weekend, we were so busy it seems to have flown by.  Looking forward to a short week and Thanksgiving!

Something Not Christmas

I wanted to do something "unseasonal"!  I used the Paper Shelter's Spring Swing digi.
Colored with Copics, paper was a scrap.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid.  Things are pretty much back to normal, yard is almost all cleaned up, got our phone back and finally got cable back.  I was missing tv I hate to admit it.  We had a generator that would light up basically a light and charge our cell phones so at night we would plug in our tiny portable DVD player and watch a movie but it wasn't the same!!  Hope everyone is having a good week.

After The Storm....

Storm Alfred showed up as a rare October snowstorm that kicked Connecticut's rear.  It dropped about a foot of heavy snow that downed wires, trees and limbs everywhere.  I believe at the height there were over 800,000 people without power.  It looked like nothing I've ever seen even with the hurricanes we've had.  We were without power, heat and water for over a week but fortunate that we were all ok.  We work for a public works department so needless to say we worked crazy hours.  But here we are almost two weeks later and normal has started to return.  We are so fortunate. 

I did get to make a few cards finally!
This cutie is a Whimsie Doodle digi.  Colored with Copics.

Copics used

Hope everyone is having a good week almost the weekend!
