I was so excited this past week because my new Whiff of Joy stamps came. I couldn't wait to start stamping, but alas there is something about this stamp that doesn't like me. I stamped it 3 times and all 3 times it went into the circular file! Yep even after it was colored. I don't know what I was doing wrong, but....You get the idea. I colored the image with copic markers E 51, R46, R 59. Prisma pencils and very inexpensive Darice Glitter, crystal.
Finally I was pleased with how this one turned out so I thought it would make a lovely aperture card and found that it fit the challenge for Basic Grey Challenge 13. The requirement there was to have one Basic Grey element and an aperture. Also it fit Lili Of The Valley/ for sprinkle and sparke because of the glittered snowflakes and the spica glitter pens. ABC Challenge, S is for snow, Our Creative Corner snowflakes, Everybody Art Challenge winter. I can't believe that it fit so many challenges. I have never done this many challenges with one card before.

I am so thankful for this wonderful news and my prayer of Thanksgiving cannot be said enough.
God truly watches over us and protects us more than we ever imagine. Can you believe that over 200 times each hour every night that God has time to watch over my husband and keep him safe? Mind boggling isn't it? When I think about this I am so reminded of what a merciful God I serve.

Wow, I can't believe how slow I am in posting my cards lately, in fact so slow that some of them didn't get posted in time for the challenges. I really don't know where the time goes. This is my challenge entry this week for WOJ . What another fun sketch to work with. I colored the image with distress inks by Tim Holtz, then highlighted with Spica at you markers and of course added my glitter. I am on one of those kicks this year. I just can't seem to get enough glitter! LOL

This is my first ever ABC Challenge. I have to admit I made this card a few weeks ago for another challenge but never got around to posting it, so with the ribbon that I used it would fit this challenge.
I used background paper from Me and My Big Ideas. Flowers from Prima and Michaels Bridal Confetti. Ribbon, pearl and spacer from my stash box. Also used Martha Stewart snowflake border punch. Image was colored using my prisma pencils. ined edges of paper using Brilliance ivy ink.
