Double Trouble Sketch

Hello!

Thank you all for your well wishes on getting better. Still feeling a bit sick, but better than yesterday! Oh and sorry to disappoint that the mom to be was not me. I however am not at all disappointed! Ha! :) You're all too sweet though, your kindness cheered me up!

Hope everyone is off to a good Tuesday, we're home today. My son has a teachers workshop day and the weather men are predicting another storm for tomorrow, so he just might have tomorrow off too. Ah, winter!

I have a card to share today that I made for two challenges. First, for Sketch Saturday and then also for Magnolia vs. Stampavie. I've never done the Magnolia vs. Stampavie challenge before, but I'm glad I did. I received a bunch of images from my friend Jo and I even got a new Magnolia stamp from my friend Janna, so this was a perfect challenge to use these sweet images. And the sketch was also fun, a good way to start out on my card.

I went with a purple and green color combo, I know AGAIN! I just love these colors and they feel like Spring to me, which can't come soon enough. :) I used three Magnolia images, all colored with Copic markers. The accents on this card are grosgrain ribbon, prima flowers, and some brads. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

Thanks for popping over! I'll be back later today to announce the winner of the February guest designer call for Whimsy Stamps. Happy Stamping! :)

I have three home today from school because of that "winter" stuff! The kids love it!! We have had several inches of snow since early this morning. And it's still snowing.

I can't wait til it's warm enough to sit outside.....This card definately says Spring!! Great coloring and primas! I love those nestabilities dies. Our stores don't carry those particular ones. :(
