Snowed-in week???

I'm soooo thankful I have my stamping to keep me sane while the weather outside seems to be getting more and more brutal. Of course, there are the multitude of chores, but besides that I really can't think of how else I could have spent my time, cooped up in the house. I'm hoping school is on tomorrow, because my older son is really craving his usual schedule and missing his friends. Besides, I think we're both tired of hearing me say, "You do that one more time, and you get a time-out!!!".

I attempted Lauras' Sketch from 2S4Y and used the colours from the Color Q Challenge # 19 (Regal Rose, Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip and White). I have to say that the card is a very loose interpretation of both challenges, but pretty enough to show it to you!!!

The stamp is from the Gina K. collection called Lovely Shelf by Nina Brackett. This stamp collection is the first that I've won so far!!! Yes, I actually won a challenge a couple of weeks ago, and it made me feel like a kid eating cake for the first time!! Yippee!!!

This next card is based on the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #32 and the colors were inspired by the Color Dare Challenge #55 (Crushed Curry, Kiwi Kiss, Brilliant Blue, and Kraft). Oh, that reminds me about cooking dinner soon!!!

I got this really sweet image of the girl with the flower basket from a really neat website called Bee Crafty. I think this was the only freebie available because I didn't seem to find anymore. If any of you decide to check out the website and finding anything else that's interesting, let me know!!

This final card is based on a sketch from the Just Us Girls Challenge #19. I haven't done as much layering as I did with this one. I had an image I'd already coloured in, that I had downloaded from Digital Doodling. There are some really cute images here if you're looking.

The DP is this really gorgeous collection called La Creme Stack by DCWV. Some of the prints has flocking on it, which gives it an incredible feel and look. I chose the "believe" sentiment, since it almost looked like the girl was making a wish with her eyes closed. I added a little glitter glue to the image (not sure if you can see too clearly).

I'm off to begin another card. I have another stamping camp coming up this weekend and I'm really looking forward to it. It will be great to learn some new techniques and meet fellow stampers. Not sure what the theme might be but I'm sure it'll be fun!! Well, I have to try and get my older one to bed before he asks me for his tenth snack of the night!! G'night and Namaste!!
