Inkspirations Sketch

Oh man, did we ever get SNOW last night!....and it's still coming down. There HAS to be over a foot of snow out there. It's a perfect day to stay inside, drink hot chocolate, stamp, and watch the Bud Shootout later tonight.



I saw this FUN Inspirations sketch on my friend Dawn's blog and just had to try it...and she totally inspired me to use my Farm Fresh DP again. Love what she does with the DP! The polka dot panel is up on foam tape and the chicken, from Anna Wight's Crazy For Chickens set, was colored with Copics.

Here's the inside:



...sorry for the bad indoor photos. You know that spot on my deck where I take pictures of my cards? Well....



I won't be taking pics out there anytime soon, lol!

Here's *Suzy Chapstick* and our dog from earlier this morning. I think it was only 7:30 and she asked to go out in it, lol!



Have a great day! To all my fellow race fans.....enjoy the Shootout!

wow...what snow you have...in Oregon we are usually buried too, but El Nino got a hold of us and it is 55° here during the day...not complaining but it feels so strange! Stay warm!

oh, I love that cute little chickadee on your card!! Funny, you and I were both fascinated with the way the snow piled up on the deck railing! LOL Your wee one looks like she's having a blast in the snow :)
I made a big pot of chicken pot pie, been working on a jigsaw puzzle and I'm so ready for the Shoot-out tonight! Hopefully it's not still raining in Daytona!! Enjoy the race and stay warm!:)

Sharfine said...

Hi Denise...here in Washington State we have 50 degrees thanks to El Nino. No snow for us & flowers are starting to come up. Hope it doesn't take a drastic turn & kill all the plants. Cute card. You give me such great ideas. Thank you.

Elaine said...

Oh my gosh, can you believe the snow we got?, LOL!

This is a great cheerful card that makes me think of Spring!

Marisa said...

Darling card - love the image :D That snow reminds me of our Christmas of 2008 when we got 1.5 feet of the stuff. Loved the silence it brings but the shoveling was another story LOL! Wears the kids out but good though :D Can you send some our way?? We have set a warm temp record for January and with the Olympics here in just over a week, they are having to TRUCK snow in because it is melting on the local mountain so quickly! You may just be seeing a strip of snow and lots of grass for some of the skiing events!

This is an adorable card! Love the colours you've chosen, and the crisp, clean lines (not to mention the too-cute focal image). Good to see you taking part in an Aussie challenge, Denise!

Lori said...

Way too cute!! :)

Doris said...

The dsp you chose is perfect for this stamp! Enjoy the next snowfall on its way tonight--think of it as free insulation! BTW, wasn't that your driver who won the shootout???

Joan Ervin said...
