Happy Thursday Everyone!! I hope everyone is cozy and warm. We faired alright in the snow storm yesterday and did not get as much snow as predicted. It was more like 6-8 inches instead of the 12-18 that was predicted. The wind whipped and our power went off and on all day. It was a real nuisance and after a while I just gave up on restarting the computer to do my daily blog hopping and tried to not rely on any of the conveniences we are all blessed with day in and day out. Days like this make you count your blessings for all the gifts which are bestowed upon you. Sorry...I hope everything cooperates today so I can visit all your blogs.

Anywho...Today is day 2 of the sneak peaks at Wags n Whiskers and each of the design team members will be displaying a different image on their blogs today. Today I will be sharing the sneak peak: Snuzzle Love. Isn't she just the sweetest? It reminds me of my daughters and their stuffed animals. This is my youngest daughters fave image!! I plan to give it to her for Valentine's Day.

I colored this image in with water colors, cut her out and popped her on dimensionals. The layout I used is from Friday Sketchers Challenge. The paper is from one of my fave left over stash of SU Parisian Breeze. The ribbon is now all gone. It was the last of my left over May Arts ribbon scraps. (Boo hoo-I love this ribbon).


Stamps: New Release sneak peak Snuzzle Love from Wags n Whiskers.
