Snow, snow, everywhere!

Good morning, lovely Bloggers!  I hope that all my UK visitors are coping with this Arctic weather that we are experiencing - it is a long time since I have seen snow as deep as what we have just now!  We must have over a foot of the darn white stuff and it seems like it's never going to stop!  We spent Friday without power and had to bring in the camping stove to boil water for's amazing just how much we use electricity, whenever we went to do something, we remembered that there was no power, so me and Little Man ended up learning how to play Beetle!  Thankfully, we are up and running again now but I haven't ventured outside apart from feeding the birds and getting the milk in!  I'll be so glad when it's Spring!
Anyway,  I have a card to share again today...I am still loving playing with colour and sketches and this card is based on an old Mojo Monday Sketch (I have to say, I LOVE their sketches, so inspirational!)...
...So how about this for a colour combo?  Orange and purple, who'd have thought it?!  The papers are from First Edition Boho Chic and bits from my scrap drawers and the background (though it doesn't show very well) is embossed with Button Candy Texturz plate...
...The image is a freebie from the lovely Sylvia Zet and was great to colour!  Isn't she just the cutest little kitty?!  I coloured with my Promarkers and added a touch of Glamourdust to highlight.  Here's the colours for all you Pro-markers...
Body : Blue Grey 1 FM, Lavender, Cool Grey 3
Hat : Light Fawn FM, Soft Peach, Honeycomb,   Ribbon : Pumpkin, Mandarin, Spice
Large Rose and Bow : Pink Lavendr FM, Orchid, Amethyst, Wild Orchid FM
Ears, nose and pads : Almond, Blush, Sunkissed Pink
Mouse : Vanilla, Sandstone, Caramel
Roses : Light Fawn FM, Soft Peach, Pumpkin
Shadow : Glacier Blue FM, Pastel Beige
...I embellished with a couple of polka dot ribbons, pearls and mulberry daisy, then added an insert with the line image to coordinate.  I love the freshness of the result, it's so cheery and pretty.
We'll be spending our afternoon trying to dig hubby's car out of the snow so he can get to work tomorrow...I do wish it would just go now, but it's still falling from the sky!  Keep warm if you're in the snow and thanks for dropping by!  Lisa x
