Make sure to enter!

And today here in the south, it's perfect for the freezing temps we are experiencing!

I fell in love with the color combo this week.
A couple of smears of Americana acrylic paint in
Bahama Blue, Warm White and Red,and my background is done.


The stamps are by Fiskars from a set called, "The Sweet Life".
I cut them our and colored the cup with Prismacolor Markers.


A bit of Stickles is all it took to make the swirl sparkle.



So stay warm today, unless you love being out in the cold.
 I tend to want to curl up with a blankie and my art supplies!

Or maybe I'll watch the latest episode of Downton Abbey on Demand with a cup of cocoa.
