The start to a new week

Here we are in Muskoka with another snow day for the kids.  Rather a rain day today.  We had freezing rain early so all buses were cancelled.  My weekend was very low key.  I had both days off and had planned to craft all weekend, but ended up doing none.  The little guy and I went looking for jeans for him, (he's wearing his only pair all week).  Mission accomplished, we came home with two more pairs for him, and a pair for me for $10.  The rest of the day was spent online checking out blogs and getting ideas.  Yesterday was laundry day. house cleaning.  And mostly sitting on the couch watching TV with the kids. 

Merry Christmas.  I'm really going to try and make Christmas cards all year long.  My snowflakes were stamped with versa mark on white paper and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then inked with green distress ink.  The image is colored with markers and the marshmellows are done with perfect puff.

Love those vibrant colors ... the emboss resist is perfect ... and those puffy marshmallows are too fun ... so very glad you got sketchy with us at jingle belles.
