Our New Nest

Well, you wouldn't believe what's happening around my nest today, crazy blowing snow!  It rained all night and switched this morning to snow...now we need the moisture desperately....but sheesh!  We had to pull out the winter stuff again for the kids!  I'm hoping it will turn again to rain later today. 

Well, I thought I'd entice you a little bit because I have BLOG CANDY HERE...and show you a card I made recently with the fantastic Friendly Reminders set that is in the 1st blog candy prize. 


I completely love this set, and I love the colors I was able to use on this card.  The papers are Basic Grey Marrakech, and I used Copics to color the birdhouse.  You'll have to forgive me, I colored this quite some time ago and I can't remember the combinations I used.  But here's a closeup of the coloring. 



Ok everyone....I'm off to do a big run of grocery shopping today.  Hope you have a wonderful day! 

Recipe:  Stamps - Flourishes Friendly Reminders;  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black;  Papaer:  Old Olive, Pacific Point, Basic Grey Marrakech Designer Paper, Flourishes Classic White;  Accessories:  Big Shot, Floral Accent Shapeabilities, Corduroy Button, Linen Thread, Velvet Ribbon, Scalloped Edge Punch (SU), Modern Label Punch, Dimensionals, Copic Markers.
