TECC43 Let it Snow



Happy Day you all!!!

Oh man - the stomach flu is going around in our house - YIKES!!! My middle daughter Rebecca had an episode the other day...didn't think much of it since she is the one who has a weaker stomach.....well last night our little Mimi left us surprises left and right - LOL!!!

My poor baby - I really hate it when she is sick...my older girls know at least when to run for the toilet...LOL. Well - I didn't get much sleep last night, but I did get a chance to work on a card I made with my brand spankin' new Taylored Expressions Set called *Home Sweet Home*.

What do your think - isn't this a cute Set??? I wanted to get one of Taylor's fab Set's a while back, but couldn't decide which one....so once I saw this card (you have to be signed in to the SCS site in order to view this beauty!!!) made by my buddy Denise for the November Dirty Dozen Gallery I knew that's the one for me too!!! Yep - it is all Denise's fault - LOL!!!

This card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". I used Real Red, River Rock and Whisper White CS. I have colored the Gingerbread House with Copic Markers - Lipstick R29 and Putty YG91. I added some Liquid Applique for the *Snow Effect* and to make it all sparkly I added the *Icicle* Stickles. The River Rock CS and the small Real Red CS up front were embossed with the CB *Snowflakes*. I raise the image panel and the sentiment up with Stampin Dimensionals.

Anyway - I hope you all have a great day and be safe if you travel this week!!!
Don't forget to stop by for my *Be Inspired* card tomorrow!!! ~TFL~
