Hot Cocoa anyone?

I wish I had some hot cocoa on this cold morning right now. Only 26 degrees (f) right now but warming up to about 45 degrees (f). How many days until Spring?

This is 2 stamps that I had to mask off the owl on the bench before adding the hot cocoa maker next to him. I watercolored him with my Koi watercolors.

Hello Inside/Out

I made a fun fold card after watching this video from Chicken Scratch. Isn't it cute? I colored both mice with my Jane Davenport watercolor paints. I want to start venturing out and making more fun fold cards.

Cut It Up - Challenge 194

At Cut It Up this week, the challenge is Your Favorite Color. I love the color purple and I made this card using this awesome bird die cut from STAMPlorations. Sentiment is by Impression Obsession.

At first, I wasn't sure how to make this bird stand out against that pretty paper so I looked at Pinterest and saw someone had did something similar and thought this is perfect so I added some little dots of stickles and that did the trick.

I can't wait to see what you make at Cut It Up.

I am also entering this in the following challenges:

Hedge-Hugs to You!

Got our first big snowstorm of the season yesterday afternoon. 1" is all we got! LOL  We don't get much snow here in Concord, NC ... so I will take anything we get.

Who can't love this little hedgehog? I watercolored him with my Koi watercolors. I found this new set of Koi watercolor paints at Hobby Lobby. They have pastel colors and some are "glittery". Not sure you can tell in the cactus?
