A Study in Blue

Hey everybody!  (Ok is it weird I heard that in my head with a Grover voice?  Anyone know what I'm talking about?  No?  Ok, never mind.  LOL).

Okay, one of my blogging friends just accused me of making her crazy!  LOL.  All because I didn't explain what I was talking about above.  Grover is from a popular, long running children's program, called Sesame Street and he's famous for saying, "hello, everybodeeeeeeeee!".  LOL.  So now I've explained it maybe my lovely friend will forgive me?!  :-D.  Okay, now we take you back to our regular scheduled programming.

Today's card is blue.  Very blue.  Take a look...

I used my Slice to die cut my snowflake again, this time out of metallic blue paper.  I attached this to my white panel. I stamped my candle and poinsettia (STAMPlorations) in grey and used my Spectrum Noir markers to colour in my candles and the middle part of the poinsettias.  Then I used some diamond Ice Stickles on the poinsettias leaves.  Then I fussy cut it out and attached on top of my snowflake with some foam dots.  Then I stamped my sentiment (also STAMPlorations) in grey.  Lastly, I attached my panel to my card base with some foam dots.

I'm linking up to the following challenges:

STAMPlorations - November challenge, stamps and layers.  Also adding it to the STAMPlorations "anything goes" ongoing challenge.
Addicted to Stamps and More - make your mark
CAS(E) This Sketch - great sketch this week!

I have a feeling that most of the cards I make for the rest of this year are going to be Christmas ones.  LOL.  Good thing they are my favourite to make.  :-).  Well, before I sign off I thought I would post a couple of pictures of our puppy, Summer.  I've had some requests for pictures, you see.  She's doesn't look like much of a puppy anymore.  She's pretty much full grown now at 7 months.  She's still acts like a puppy though.  Getting into trouble.  LOL.

Apparently, my lap makes a good bed.  LOL.

She loves her pig toy.

They are both watching the birds at the feeders.  :-)

Well, I hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for visiting!


  1. You can't just we know what you are talking about...and I don't....then not tell us...I was about to google it and decided that was crazy, you make me crazy!!! This card is just an amzing design, I think it is really unique with the candles placed on the snowflake and refreshing to see the leaves in silver. This is so like the sketch at Uniko...should be in our gallery there! Thanks for joining us at ATSM xx

  8. What a lovely card! Great snowflake die cut and I love how you placed the image in front and colored it so subtly!

  9. Very inspiring how you colored these candles! I might want to try something similar, thanks Kim! Summer looks adorable! Poor Rafa can't sleep with his head on my lap because he is not allowed to the sofa... We are cruel dog parents. :) We've been going to a puppy school 3 times now and he's been behaving very well twice and was a complete catastrophe once... We'll see what next week brings! :) Rafa is almost full grown too and very cute. He steals socks from the laundry all the time but it's hard to be angry to that face!!! :)
