Ohhhh The Weather Outside is Frightful....

But the fire inside...Delightful!

It is Monday again! This one will be a fun way to start the week, though!

Today starts the BLOG HOP!

If you are here first - be sure to go to the Sweet 'n Sassy's Blogfor another Sneak Peeks! Christi was scheduled to participate but had something happen to her computer so she is not particpating today.

This particular card, I used Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge with. The stamp comes from one of my personal designs titled "WINTER AT HOME." I am so thrilled with out it turned out and hope you will love it too!

This particular card, I colored with Copics, but I will be showing another card later this week that has NO coloring with this stamp set.

When I colored this image, I tried to shadow the walls and give the walls a "glowing" effect from the candle and fireplace using a yellow Copic and W3 and W5 to warm the room up! :)

Here are a few more details...

Stamp Set: Winter at Home available November 1 - at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
