You Make Me Happy Every Day


Happy Saturday!  Winter has finally arrived in California and while I love sunshine, I'm excited about the rain and snow (for now).  Today's card was inspired by a few challenges (Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, Lawnscaping winter theme and CR84FN colors).  And since Mr. Ben didn't win last week's WMS sketch random draw he wanted to play again.  So below is his take on the sketch with "his" WMS half pint heroes set.


 

Materials: Making Frost Friends, Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Frames #1, Waltzingmouse Half Pint Heroes sentiment, PTI snowflake impression plate, vellum, PTI white card stock, Stampendous silver and clear embossing powder, Versafine black ink, silver ink, Spellbinders Label 1 die, PTI double sided banner die, Authentique Blissful patterened paper, pink scraps, colored pencil

Ben's Card: Waltzingmouse Stamps Half Pint Heroes,  Card stock from scraps, PTI Photo Finishers die, Hero Arts kids red ink
