just for you! Inspired by Stamping

I am so snowed in.  LOL  We already got 2 feet and it's still snowing.  It's slowed down, but it's expected to keep snowing for the next 8-10 hours or so.  I'll try to get some pics later but I'm not stepping foot out there right now and the windows all have snow drifts covering them so I really can't get any good pics through them. We made a big breakfast and now we're just lounging around... figured I'd do some coloring, I printed out a bunch of images last night just in case we lost power.  So far, so good!

I'd like to share this card with you today:

I used the freebie offered at Inspired by Stamping #90 and all 3 of their challenge inspirations:

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and fussy-cut it out.  I added a sticker from SRM Stickers to the center of the heart and a bow charm.  Added a touch of Stickles and matted it on papers from My Mind's Eye.  Peace.

Lucy Loo Hocus Pocus

Good morning!  We finally got a little snow yesterday, but I hear there is a massive storm on the way for Tuesday that might dump up to TWO FEET of snow on us!!!  I'm kind of looking forward to a snow day - but if we really get that much, it'll be crazy.  I might end up snowed in for two days!  LOL   I guess we better hit the grocery store and packie (liquor store for those of you not in New England - LOL)!  :)

While it snowed yesterday, I had some crafty time.  I made this card for the following challenges:

I used Lucy Loo Hocus Pocus from The East Wind, colored Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  Papers are from Authentique.  I added a little skeleton key charm, some gemstone stickers, and a little clay skullie from my buddy Glo.  Sentiment was made with little stickers from Tim Holtz.  Stay warm, friends!  Peace.
