More Snow Buddies and more Blue

Hi! You would think by my last couple of posts that my favorite color is blue. It's not, it's actually red, but I love using blues and greens for winter cards. It's DEFINITELY winter here today. Sara and I went out for just a couple minutes earlier and the thermometer in my car said it was 12 degrees. The flurries are blowing and the wind is blowing hard! The radio station said that we will get down to between 0 and -5 degrees tonight/early tomorrow morning! BRRRRR!!

This card uses one of my new Riley stamps! I love this little guy and they were on sale, so I bought a couple of them. It also uses Bazzill Bling, Doodlebug Sugar Coated paper, Quickutz flower cookie cutter dies, prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, white pen for highlighting, Stampendous sentiment stamp, EKSuccess photo corner punch, cuttlebug embossing folders, glitter, flocking and glitter pen. I made it for a challenge over on SCS. The challenge is here
if you would like to play too!

Some really sweet news!!! My first great niece was born yesterday. She has an older brother so now I have a great nephew and a great niece. Her name is Berit Hannah and I will show you a picture when I get one. They are are doing very well! :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulously warm day!
