i {heart} sketches and Anything Goes at Kraftin' Kimmie!

Happy Tuesday! I am so thankful to be back home and in my craft room this afternoon! The drive into school this morning was NOT FUN...and it's still snowing and the wind has picked up. There are tow-advisory warnings out for our major highways and night schools are cancelling classes for tonight. Great day to stay in and get inky.....

Kraftin' Kimmie has issued an ANYTHING GOES challenge using one of her stamps so I decided to use this image that my daughter colored up a few days ago. I added the blue outline and ground color (and after this post went live and I was re-reading it, I realize I should have made it SNOW on the ground, not dirt...oh well - there's just no snow there yet ;) YEESH!! Sorry!) but she did the rest - I think I might be fighting her for my copic markers here shortly ;)

I went in search of a sketch to use for my card and came across this PERFECT one over at i {heart} sketches:

And here is the complete card:

On my way home this morning, I stopped at the mailbox (and trudged through knee-deep snow to get there) and I was so giddy to find a goodie package from Lil' Inker Designs - and I promptly used my new stitched squares dies on my image!! Love these!!

 I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sassy Cheryl's Digi Stamps - Winter/Cold Weather
Creative Card Crew - Pearls

Thanks for stopping in today - I am off to get some housework done and then need to venture out again to pick up my daughter from her swim club - unless they cancel swimming today ;)
