sending warm fuzzies

....on this chilly day! Brrr! It's cold enough to snow here! Thank goodness the sun is out - I'm not a fan of those sunless, cold, dreary days. ;)
Just sharing a card I made for this months Hero Arts challenge...kinda hard to take a picture of a window card, but here it is....

Some subtle stamping using my new, amazing, fantabulous, wonderful Versamark ink pad - I personally think it should be called Versamagic, the stuff is so amazing!
Oops, someone didn't read (or chose to ignore) the directions that state 'wipe stamp before and after use'. Now I got a bit of gray going on due to the last time I used the stamp...ah well....

Random pearls on trees!

Color blocks were taken from various Hero Arts digital kit 'extras' - never thought I'd use those, but they really came in handy!

Someone also needs to get a new Xcato knife, especially considering this one is so old, I don't even know how old it is!

Well, that's it for me - have a blessed Sunday!
