Double Challenge

I wanted to do the Mojo Monday challenge yesterday, but I spent the afternoon shopping with my parents and then last night I cuddled with my dog, Nala. She had surgery yesterday on her teeth and has been whinning and wheezing every since. I've enjoyed cuddling with her though since it is finally chilly outside. So I brought Nala's pillow and blanket into the office and cuddled her all up at my feet so I could stamp. It worked. I decided to combine the Mojo Challenge with today's Color Challenge which was nice because it took the guess work of things. The snowflakes are in Bashful Blue (stamped off once) and Basic Grey; I like that two-toned look. The swirl on the Pomegrante paper was stamped in Versmark and that turned out pretty cool because it looks like velvet. I wish you could see the snowman IRL. His jacket is paper pieced on and then I went over his body with some white pearlescent shimmer chalk. The sentiment is actually a sticker that I found at Archiver's.
