Blooming Meadow Card Set and Purse

Hello!  Happy Monday!  Winter has arrived here in Winnipeg!  Oh the snow!  Friday it came down all day and we spent the day at home and it was wonderful!  The kids enjoyed playing outside in it although Carter hasn't mastered walking in the snow!  We had to rescue him a few times, once he was crying and Ariel was calling Chad to come and help him "I love him you need to get him!"  How sweet!  It snowed more on Saturday, Sunday and it's coming down right now!  Driving in the snow has been an adjustment, it's funny how you forget!  I worked at the mall this weekend and it was NUTS I guess with the snow the Christmas bug has hit! (Thankful I only work 5 hour shifts that's for sure!) I bought Ariel two winter hats, I couldn't help it, I love cute animal hats, I got her a owl and monkey one!  I bought Carter a puppy one last week!  Such good sales I am lucky I made it out of there alive and didn't spend too much!

Today I have another card purse to share!  I like that the current Hero Arts contest includes gifts!  I think this is a great gift!  For this one I played with my blooming meadow stamp:

First I stamped the magical background (by HA) with gray ink on white cardstock.  Than I colored the blooming meadow stamp with markers and sprayed it with water mixed with perfect pearls and stamped it!  Finished with a bow and a sentiment stamped on the bottom!

I have actually been  quite busy creating lately so I have a lot to share in the next little while!  Hopoe your week starts out great!

lovely set of cards,.... and I can imagine the first snow of the season is great... but I'm sure the novelty will wear off very quickly Anita.
