Cooler in Southern Cali!!!

Brrrrr...it's feeling lots chillier here in Southern California! NOW I'm happy with the weather...lol. I can actually snuggle within myself when I get that blast of cool air in my face. Love it! Now I can break out the hot cocoa and the warmer blankets.

This card here was made for Hanna Stamps contest challenge on SCS by my girl Candice. She provided a sketch for us to work with. It was simple...but those sometimes are the best. I'm actually intimidated by sketches with those 4 panels where they have to line up...lol. I actually made it work because I put more effort into it...plus it was made simpler thanks to Scor-Pal! Yes...it's a MUST have this Scor-Pal! What's funny is that while I was intimidated by the lines of the panels not matching...I pasted the image a bit off center from the scalloped circle...LMBO! That's the only reason I used those white Prima flowers there...to cover up the boo boo!!! I still like the outcome though...so I guess no complaints! As hard as it was to use my stack of Figgy Pudding DP...I used it! It was harder than I thought...lol. I told you I have to start using what I already have before I start buying more once my spending freeze lifts. I also used those snowflake brads which I was "hiding" AND have really been using up my TONS of flowers I have. Not to mention my watercolor paper.

Speaking of watercolor paper...OMG...I tried using my Prismacolor markers on it...I am in love! I now need to buy more WC paper!!! I love how it didn't bleed and how well it blended the colors like LV's been teaching me! I still like my bright white from Wausau Paper...don't get me wrong...but this WC paper really stunned me! Whatcha think?

Ink: BBlack, SSky, BBreeze, & Prismacolor markers
