Chilly Skunk!

Hi All!

Well, boy am I glad that the weekend is over! I don't think I've ever been happier for it to be Monday before! We finally got our power back on at 11:30 last night, just shy of the 72 hour mark. We are very fortunate as there are still many many people without their power. We've never experineced anything like this before. It was a cold, dark, and boring weekend! I'm looking forward to life getting back to normal and getting back to stamping!

I have a card to share today, one I made last week before the ice storm. I used my Whimsy Skunk for the main image on this card along with SU! Ski Slope DSP and felt snowflakes.

I colored my skunk with markers and then added iridescent ice EP over the whole piece. To me this skunk screams sassy. So I wanted to glam her up with the glitter! I also randomly adhered some tiny rhinestones to the snowflakes and the DSP for added bling.

Thanks for stopping by, I'm looking forward to visiting all of you today too. I've missed being able to blog hop!

I'm also hoping to add a new challenge on the Whimsy group over at Paper Craft Planet today. Hope you'll check it out and maybe even play along! Have a great day! Happy Stamping! :)

Love the sparrkle that you've added. It really is beautiful. Glad to know that you have your power back. Isn't it amazing how much we take for granted and then poof..no power and you start to realize! Hope everything gets back to normal!
