Hello Friends! Here in Wisconsin we are getting a big Snow Storm! It has been so brown and cold here in SE Wisconsin, that frankly I am THRILLED to see the snow...Plus that means I can lay low and RELAX today. Wait...I do that most days! LOL I actually have a really laid back schedule this year which I am LOVING! I have said NO to many things to slow down my pace and enjoy that quiet time with my family and the kids. I LOVE IT!!! There is only one day a week that I am running a lot with the children and that is Thursdays.

When creating this card, I used Splitcoast Stampers Featured Stamper - I used Karen Bar's card HERE:
Things I changed was:
1. I used I Brake For Stamps images
2. Colored the image with Copics instead of embossing
3. Used TJ Newsletter and made the BG with the Camoflauge technique
4. I also moved the circle down to the bottom of the focal point
5. Used a scallop punch along the bottom
6. added gems to the upper corner and along the Scallop

I also created this card using the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges #25 - Here
We were supposed to use two of the same type of things - but different. I used 2 different cardstocks - Black and Burgundy CS

Background uses the Technique Junkies Newsletter technique called CAMOFLAUGE -

Here are a few more details:
Stamps: I Brake For Stamps - Paris and Heart Collage, Circle of Friends
Paper: Burgandy, Black, White
Ink: Copics, Burgandy, More Mustard, Memento
Accessories: Gold Gems, Camoflauge Technique Junkies Newsletter, Scallop Punch, Circle Punches
Techniques: Camoflauge by Technique Junkies

Today the kids will be making Valentine's for a party we are going to on Thursday! That will be LOTS of fun!!!

Thank you for taking a closer look and commenting! Have a great day!
