Baby, It's Cold Outside!...


Hey everyone...hope you're having a GREAT weekend!

I think that all this cold weather is messing w/ my immune system LOL...although I've been told there is no correlation ;) I think a bigger correlation is probably having school aged kiddos, ya think? Oh well...we'll have had a 5 day weekend by the time is all said and done, so hopefully I can rest up...

...no time for resting though, I have stamping to do! I did manage to stamp some today, and I was really excited to come across the Whiff Of Joy Challenge for this week! It's a GREEN and PURPLE color challenge! How fun! I've never been able to participate in a WOJ challenge before, but now that I own my very own Lizzie with Muff stamp, I couldn't wait to get started!
A few days ago, I ran across THIS card from my friend and fellow Prettie Girl, Jackie Pedro, a.k.a. "Officer J" :) hee hee. I liked it so much, I decided to try my hand at it in a roundabout way...so thanks for the inspiration, Jackie! She used Mercy Kerin's sketch, MTSC25.
I had so much fun using my Shimmerz for this project as well. I painted Angel Wings on the flowers and used Burgundy, actually, for her muff, scarf, and earmuffs. I know, burgundy didn't SOUND like it'd be a match, but it was actually perfect! I couldn't resist and had to add some Liquid Applique to her furry trim on her coat and boots. Isn't she just the most darling image? I really like her, and am gonna have to save my pennies for more WOJ stamps...they're addicting!

So, are you guys getting a lot of stamping done this weekend? Hope so! What's everyone working on? I have a few fun things to show you this coming week so make sure to come by when you can...love hearing from you! I'll be back soon...for now...stay warm and hugs!

Jessica :)
