Good morning all!

Today's weather is a lot better than what we had yesterday.

We were going out for breakfast yesterday but  about a block from home slid thru a stop sign. Black ice! Thank goodness there were no other cars. Needless to say we decided to eat at home!

This beautiful image is Rubbernecker's From the Heart Long Stemmed Rose! It was stamped using Momento Tuxedo Black then colored using Copic Markers. For the flower I started with R00 colored over that (except the edges) using R20 then blended again with R00! Added R24 to the center and blended again using R00! The leaves were colored using G40, G82 and G85. The embossed hearts were done using a Sizzix embossing folder! I used Spellbinders scorpal to score the lines on the right. The image was framed using Spellbinders Nestabillities!

Hope your day is filled with blessings! Thanks for Stopping by!

Happy Saturday everone!

This is my first official upload as a design team member for Rubbernecker. Woot!!!!!

Rubbernecker's*Ivy Heart* was stamped twice and colored using copics. Some of the leaves were cut out and popped up! The background was scored every 1/2" using the Scorepal. I used the Grid Tech found HERE! The Spellbinder diecut was used to cut out the image and then popped up!

All total we had about 5" of snow. I think it is over for awhile! Sure hope so.

These are some of our squirrelly friends stopping by to munch some nuts and bread! They expect their little treats everday. They sit in the tree and wait. I think if I forgot they would start banging on the door. (tee-hee)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a marvelous weekend!

Happy New Year!

Hope all is well with everyone! We had our coldest day so far this winter, 4 degrees! We usually go to the Saturday evening church service, so we were lucky and didn't have to go out today! We have not had the snow and ice some of you have had, so I really can't complain!

This is for todays Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast! Ann (ardodd) was the featured stamper today!

I would like to introduce you to Henry! You can find Henry at Rubbernecker!
Henry was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored using copics. YR01, 04, 09, and 14 - R20, 24, and 27 - G82, 85, and 99 - E25 and 49 - YR00 and YR000.

The background panel was embossed using the Cuttlebug and Sizzix embossing folder! The smaller background panel was stamped using  Rubbernecker's Chicken Wire background. This card measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a marvelous evening!
