Thursday Sparks Challenge 12/1 Anything Goes

Happy Thursday

We are expected to get a snow storm starting tonight into tomorrow.  I get as excited as the kids do with the awesome thought of a SNOW DAY!!  It is like a little gift that is just soooo wonderful. So if you think abou it tonight Please do a snow dance for us!  I would LOVE a day to hang and cuddle with my boys!!

Do you love challenges?  You know I go in cycles and right now I am LOVIN" them!  They are just what I need!  One of the challenges that I like to participate in is the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge.  They have changed things up just a bit and this week's challenge is Anything Goes!

So I broke into my Paper Smooches Stamps and found this cute litttle beverage and I stamped it and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers and added the little snowflakes and I just LOVE the sentiment.  I am going to put this in hubby's lunch next week as a surprise!  For the banner pieces I used some Bella Blvd. paper and washi tape!

cardstock- core'dinations smooth 110 lb. cardstock
paper- bella blvd
stamps- paper smooches
ink- memento, hero arts
spectrum noir markers

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a sketch and layout using Moxxie!  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Will do a snow dance for you.
We are expecting snow, too, but it's rare that the kids school is called off.
We are actually getting sleet right now. Yuck!
