Fusion: Coffee and A Book

Oh yes this card depicts my idea of a good time......reading is one of my favorite ways to get through cold wintry days!  Another great way to spend a few winter days is a week in Florida......that's where I am as we speak......just hanging out in the sunshine with Miss Emma, her folks and a mouse.....

Fusion has a great challenge this week!  I used both the picture and the sketch!  Hope you join us!

When Valentine's Day rolls around here in the northeast it is still midwinter so Smitten Mittens is a perfect set to use for a Valentine!  The mittens send a warm cozy wish for Valentine's Day!

And speaking of warm and cozy........

Oh that Benny and Coop look so angelic but they are a handful!

Kim's fun sketch has us seeing double this week!  Hope you join us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Punny Valentine

The Punny Valentine Challenge at The Paper Players this week makes me smile so I decided to get a head start on some Valentines.  Remember when we had to memorize this sentence to learn the planets?

My very educated mother just served us nine pickles.

And I just can't seem to throw Pluto out of the group!

I used the sketch at Cas(e) this Sketch for my design.

Happy Day......FMS319

After two weeks of crazy sub-zero temps and arctic winds the temperature finally made it into double digits!  Miss Emma hit the slopes with her dad and the Big Guy while I stayed home and made this card using tropical colors in honor of the sunshine and 20 degrees!

Rita has a great sketch for us to start the new year at Freshly Made Sketches.  Hope you join us!
