Challenge #146 One Stitch At A Time

Happy Sunday everyone :) It was a busy week at work last week. I have enjoyed the weekend. Kevin is getting better from being sick. I was able to go over to the house and line the cabinets this weekend. I have brought boxes home from work. Hmmmm... what else LOL It's been great having the kids back at school and us getting back to a routine.

And this week we have a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time!! We are on Challenge #146 with a theme of Anything Goes! This is always a favorite! :) I used a Stitchy Design for this challenge... The Snowsuit. I love them! And here is the card:

The paper is all white cardstock - two different white cardstock. On the puff on top of the hat I used Martha Stewart Crystal Tinsel Glitter. I also used some Polar White Flower Soft on the Snow. I chalked on the edge of the snow piles and around the sentiment with light blue. The sentiment I created. And I colored with Copic and added some dimension.

Blue Suit: B91, B93, B95, B97, G20, G24, G28, G29
Hair: E08, E09, E18, E19
Red Suit: R22, R24, R27, R29, R39, B12, B14, B16, B18
Skin: E000, E00, E01
Cheeks/Nose: R20
Tongue: R22, R24

Yesterday we spent the day over at the house we are going to be renting. We were lining cabinets in the kitchen and cleaning up. We also brought a bunch of stuff over. We almost have the garage here at the apartments emptied out. I am sore all over.. my back, my feet LOL Today, we will go to church and then bring another load over. We have four weeks and she is letting us move things over, so we will get as much moved as we can. The Saturday we are moving we should have minimal stuff to move and the movers can move the furniture. 

I hope you all have a fantastic rest of your weekend!!
