You Sparkle!

Hello Friends and Happy snowy Saturday night!  We came home from late afternoon services at our church, had dinner together, and now it is jammie time watching the snow fall.  I just L*O*V*E winter in New England!  Our area is expecting about six inches.  Tomorrow we can go sledding and build a snowman in the front yard...I can't wait!  I'll be thrilled when the ice is ready for skating.
I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas.  Our home was filled with family on Christmas Eve and then again on Christmas Day.  Everything went beautifully and it even snowed on Christmas morning for a White Christmas!  After everything was cleaned up, I took a moment to stamp four of these sweet images from the a' la modes collection from My Favorite Things.  I have spent my evenings since Christmas night just coloring and relaxing.  It felt soooo good to just sit and color!  My New Year's resolution is to start making more time for coloring again.  I have missed it so!  Even if I don't get the chance to create a card, I can at least color up some of my beautiful images from my stamp collection. 
I used the image and sentiment from the MFT You Sparkle set.  I looked at some of the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club sketches that I have missed and decided that this image would work well with MFTWSC100.  My image is colored up with Copic Markers (B91, B95, C3, C5, E000, E41, E35, E37, E50, E53, R46, R59, YR20, and the Colorless Blender.)  All of the patterned papers are from Echo Park.  The snowflake was made with My Favorite Things Die-namics and I accented it with a Papertrey Ink button and some twine from the Paper Source.  The string of lights has a coat of Star Dust Stickles on the top which takes care of Lisa Somerville's Blogger's Challenge this week (Sparkle and Shine) too.  It has been forever and a day since I have had the chance to play along in that challenge!!  You can find Lisa's challenge right here
I have three more images already colored up and I just need to pick out a few more sketches to make some more cards.  Hopefully, I'll be able to post again before I head back to school.  Have a wonderful evening and if it is snowing in your neck of the woods, stay safe and Enjoy!!  Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
