Yup...the snow pics were from yesterday. All day it snowed, and snowed.....and snowed. I think this lays claim that hell does freeze over:) Tonight it is supposed to go down to a balmy -12 C. At least we have sun now for the next 5 days and this will be melting like the wicked witch from Oz. Now on to more delightful things. I made this card for the challenge at 365 Days cards-
http://365cards.blogspot.com/2011/03/day-24-abcs-of-crafting-mno.html the letters M(marker), N (number) and O (orange). She skipped J, K, and L. I decided to try to add those too I figure, why not! Hope that is OK. So I chose J-Jewel, K-Knot, and L-Lavender. I have this great new stamp fromAnimal Spirit Stamps by Sue Coccia. You can view them at www.earthartinternational.com. It was great detail in the horse with fish, a spider(we won't go there), an eagle and she always puts in a ladybug because it means good luck...can you find it (hint-on an inner leg). I used my tombow markers to colour in the image. I cute the horse out (stamped it on glossy white with basic black ink). I have a celtic knot design which I embossed using the old style method with a lighted box and some of those pencils with steel balls on the end of them (there is a joke in there some where). I used a burnt orange cardstock for that and then apricot brown dye ink to sponge the detail. I used lanvender cardstock along with a light brown and then this neat corderoy brown cardstock. I had gold stickers which I coloured in a orange marker and put it all together. The horse is place on with pop up dots. I finished it off with "Happy 20th" since this is for our nephew who is turning 20 today and I alse used jewels in green, purple and lavender(nope not real..Dang) on either side of the card and little wee ones for the eyes of the horse, fish and eagle(orange and blue). OK so there is my card. Oh and have no idea how people can just have "365 Cards" highlighted. Still working on that but at least I tried it this way. Now I think I saw another blog too called ABC cards and if this fits for this blog, I shall join it and place this on their site too.
