Hello Friends! I'm finally back in what seems like forever! LOL  Today I have a card to share with you that I've created for the From the Heart Stamps freebie challenge, and I've used their sweet sketch challenge as well as inspiration.  I only used the sketch the time.  Do click on their links and check them out!
I'm sharing this card with Word Art Wednesday this week to. :)

This snowman is just adorable with his little birdie friend and I coloured them up with my Spectrum Noir markers. I used some sweet papers from Colorbok and a swatch of burlap and a misc button with twine.
I know that some of my friends are dealing with hot temps this summer, so here is some cool wishes for you!
It's actually been really cool here where I live, and I've been wanting some warmth so that my tomatoes will turn...if they don't, I'll be making some fried green tomatoes! :)
The front of my home is finally starting to look nice with the flowers blooming.  Last night the sky was just gorgeous as the sun set! I just had to take a pic before going to bed....at about 11:30! I love the long days of summer here in the Yukon!

So thank you for popping by to see me! I miss my crafting time, but life is full of wonderful things, like making making a hat for a friend in exchange for some very sweet little stamps that I hope to be sharing soon!  Here is my daughter modelling it for me. Something warm and funky.

Then there is some yummy baking we've been doing, like this cake my younger daughter made today.  The icing was a bit warm so it didn't turn out like she wanted, but it sure tasted GOOD!

There are other projects on the go and I get to working on them in between family needs and gardening.  Hope to have more to share with you all soon.
Praying you have a beautiful day! :)

That snowman is just perfect for me at the moment, it's been so cold here and lots of snow close by over the past week. It will be nice to see flowers again.
That cake looks so yummy and pretty too, and your daughter is a gorgeous model, Have a wonderful week
