Hello Friends and happy Monday!
We got more snow over the weekend! We are up to about 11 inches now with a coating of ice on the top. The hubby and I got out for a long walk in it yesterday and let me tell you, it is very difficult to walk in snow with an ice crust! First you have to crunch through it, then you sink down in it, then you have to pull your feet back out again. Now do that over and over again for a long time. Whew! I worked up a sweat fast and had my hat and scarf tied around my waist long before we got back home. I do have to admit, it was very pretty though.... even on March 1st :)
Well, I have some exciting news! I was invited by Peggy Jo Ackley to be on the design team for Pink Ink Stamps. After spending many years licensing her beautiful designs and illustrations to the paper, gift, and home decor industry, Peggy has recently acquired the much beloved images created by Karen Lockhart for the Lockhart Stamp Company, and is now offering her own gorgeous artwork as stamps, through Pink Ink Stamp Co. You can visit her store here, and you can purchase Pink Ink Stamps at Ellen Hutson which carries the entire line.
Isn't that stamp beautiful!! It looks so detailed, but it really only took me a few minutes to color. I used my Copic markers. I used three shades of red, three shades of green and two shades of warm grey. The kraft colored background mat, I cut out of kraft paper and speckled with some white acrylic paint. I mounted everything with foam tape for a little dimension.

And before I leave you, I must share a photo of me beside our lovely little creek in the beautiful winter wonderland :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a happy week!
