Christmas Jake:

Good morning everyone!  Here we are at fabulous Friday again!

We received some crazy weather last night.  I rained ice.  It was rather weird and a little unsettling knowing that I would have to drive in it in the morning.  After the ice rain was over then it started to heavily snow and it looks like it won't stop until tomorrow.  That means a very slow morning commute to work.  At least I have my snow tires on, which helps in the snow.

I hope I don't bore you too much with my morning snoozeville banter - I swear I get more exciting as the day goes on ;)

This week StampFairy is sponsoring Crafty Catz' texture challenge.  I pretty much breathe texture, so this was an either one for me :)

I used little baby Jake and jazzed him up with all sorts of textures.

The prettiest bling ever!!  I found one in pink too!!
Card Ingredients to come later - I have to get going!

I made this card for the following challenges:  Live and Love and Really Reasonable Ribbon - Christmas, Emerald Faeries - charms, Shopping Our Stash - 3D flowers, CSAYL - any Christmas, Hooked on Craft - Christmas with no red or green, Sketch Saturday - sketch:

Also, please meet the newest members of the StampFairy family - Funny Owls:

Have a warm and safe weekend - I am off to battle the winter and traffic - wish me luck!

Freezing rain is quite possibly the worst weather there is. Definitely worse than snow! We get at least a few of those storms each year, and they're terrible for power outages & accidents. Yuck!
This is absolutely fun & fabulous - I want to touch it! The different textures are just begging for that, and this is definitely a keepsake card :) Those roses are perfect for our Shopping our Stash challenge this week - thanks for playing with us!
