You Tickle My Fancy

Sunday, February 12, 2017

I really loved the colors this week at Color Throwdown and the sketch at Fab Friday so I wanted to be sure to play along with both.  I think they are a match made in heaven!

I used my favorite feathers for this card and embossed them with some SU embossing powder.  I also used an old favorite - a scallop circle die!  I remember when your stamping stash was not complete without a plethora of Nestabilities in it.  The scallop circles were especially useful and then in accordance with the fickle nature of crafting supplies they sort of fell out of fashion.  But I've noticed them popping up now and again.   What's old is new again!

The forecasters are predicting another blizzard for tonight and tomorrow.  There's a good chance that the storm will be just far enough north of me that I'll only get another half a foot of snow.  But the winds are expected to be very bad and I am praying I don't lose power.  There's nothing worse than being in a cold, dark house!

Thanks for stopping by!
