Wintry Mix - FMS173






Making Valentines was a great way to spend time this week while all that white stuff fell outside!  Our sketch at Freshly Made Sketches was designed by the amazing Kim Singdahlsen. It's perfect for mixing some color and patterns against a white background.  I may have been inspired by colors and white backdrop in these pictures of Emma!  She went to a winter festival in Lake Placid and took her first sleigh ride. 







Then it was back to work at Grandma's house shoveling a path to the street with Grandpa!



My Valentines are almost finished and I look forward to celebrating with my family on the 14th.  It's impossible not to love a holiday that involves chocolate, sweet cards and is only 14 days away from March!

Kim's sketch involves panels that are slightly askew - fun! Hope you join us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Love the card...is that freshly fallen snow on the Calypso Coral panel, LOL?! LOVE the pix of Emma too! The one with the horse is just divine! We lost all of our white stuff but I think a wee bit more is due tomorrow...nothing like what you have, though!
