We don't get much snow here so when we do it is a big deal.  I loved this snow because I didn't have to get out in it, it was predicted to last only a few hours and the temp was to be above freezing with sun the next day.  How perfect is that?  It had rained for days so as soon as the rain stopped and the snow started I ran out to fill the bird feeders and was rewarded with these beauties!

 I am not sure if Louie and Belle were more interested in the snow or the birds but they stayed at the windows or door during the whole show.  And a few hours later, just as scheduled, the snow stopped and a beautiful sunset appeared.

Welcome 2013

Our Set in Stone Sisters business was very successful this December.  Our vintage Knoxville coasters were more popular than I ever imagined!!  Our last day at the crafts fair was Dec 22 and I took two weeks off and concentrated on my first love-cardmaking.
 I bought a Silhouette Portrait for my self for Christmas.  This peacock feather is what sold me on the machine to start with.  The stamp is from Impression Obsession.
 This card was done for an alcohol ink watercolor background swap.  I used multi media paper so the colors absorbed rather than blended but I rather like how it turned out.  The stamp is one I got to use for coasters but I will be using it for cards too.  It is from Stampers Anonymous.
I am not sure which company this little vintage dig came from but  I printed her off quite some time ago.  I used a shimmery text weight paper and colored her with copics.  The background was done using Judikins Mica Gloss, which I bought several years ago when I visited CA.  
Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
