falling snow

Sunday, January 18, 2015


A package arrived on Friday containing a stamp set from my friend. I had mentioned a stamp I was going to purchase that I had convinced myself at Christmas I shouldn't at the time. She said she had it, had loved it enough, and was passing it along to me. I was so excited to receive it and couldn't wait to play!

I am entering my card in the challenge at Merry Monday this week for critters with barely any time to spare! Love, love the bunny in the photo! This stamp set by Penny Black, "Winter Play," was made for the challenge!

This was such a fun image to use. It reminds me of my girls, Spirit and Abbey. Spirit, the princess, being pulled on her sled by Abbey, our own little energizer bunny!

The middle photo in the "Clean Slate" challenge on Virginia's View Challenge Blog inspired me to use black and white with just a few colors along with white space. Of course, the kitties always catch my eye, too. 

Additionally, the Penny Black sentiment from the set, "Holly Day Critters" is one I've had since 2012 and haven't used. I've also had the embossing folder, "Snowflakes and Scroll" for a while, so I'm linking this up to the challenge at CASology for NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff). 

Thanks for visiting our Attic. Abbey and I treasure your visits!
