A good time to stay in and cuddle Day 5 IO New release Blog Hop


I saved my two FAVE cards for the last day of the Hop~

Winter is a good time to stay in and cuddle. I think so..... I have to be honest, i'm not a huge fan of the cold, but I LOVE snowmen, pretty snowfalls; the kind where the flakes are huge and fluffy and fill the sky. I love the look of snow on the pines and cardinals! I don't like the cold, but I enjoy building a snowman, skating on the lake (although I'm not a great skater) and a drive on a dry road in the winter to take in all the wintery scenes. Other than that....Winter IS a good time to stay in and cuddle!!!

I used several stamps and Dies for this snowy winter card


Paper: Something Blue-Prima
Colouring: Prism Pencils







So I truly hope you enjoyed my projects this week! I know I sure enjoyed creating them!!!

Please head over to the IO Blog to get the details for prizes...I know that there will be TWO winners today!!! 

Is it a long weekend in the USA as well as Canada? If so, enjoy!

I'm looking forward to a few days off!

Keep your eyes peeled for more IO creations! I have some saved up to share next week!


Happy Stamping

  14. Those are beautiful cards! The sweet mitten and snowman must be for someone very special. There are so many great things to see on it. I love the pearl trimmed gingham mitten and the snowman with all his trees. The snowflakes with the glittery touches are beautiful and the sentiment is so sweet.
    Then I come to the second card and it's amazing too! I love the sparkly touches on the wreath and the branch tucked under the image. The tone on tone stamping on the back ground is lovely!
    Beautiful work! Thank you so much for sharing! :)

  54. Beautiful cards. I agree with you about the cold, snow looks pretty but it is still cold. The combination of stamps and dies and embellishments make the snowman card extra special. The wreath card is unusual and the colour is gorgeous. Love the sparkle on both cards. Thank you for sharing today.
