Cup of Cocoa ~ Snowman Soup

Adorable little snowmen win my heart everytime!!! This particular snowman was just released earlier this month and I coloured him immediately to use in a monocromatic challenge I never submitted. I realized I like the red candy cane too much :-) He can be paired with a cute snowman soup poem also released along with other new digi images, clear stamps, dies and paper!!! 

stamps: snowman soup digi, snowman soup poem digi
Paper: basic grey, kraft cardstock
Inks: copics, memento, colourbox chalk ink
embellishment: ribbon, pearls
You will notice that I only used a portion of the poem...when it was time to put this all together, the poem could not be found anywhere! When I finally found it, I had already gone ahead to finish the card. So, I pulled out my oval punch and used a portion of it to give it the room and adorable dignity it deserves. 

Thank you for stopping by! Don't forget to swing by the Sweet'nSassy store, Korin and Dan have a sweet deal for every $25 gift certificate purchase!

11-11-11 ~ We pause and Salute all Armed Forces

~picture credit to FB~
Happy Veteran's Day! As the colours are waving today, the songs are played in remembrance of all branches of the Military, I cannot help but tear up everytime. I honour these Veterans, Past and Present for giving their time and lives for this Great Nation! Let's pray for our Troops!

~Reenlisting for the USMC~
Our son just re enlisted in the Marine Corps this past August...We cannot be more proud of him. I pray daily for his life, his purpose and for his protection.

Happy Veteran's Day!
