The Ink Spot: Winter Fun Challenge

Hi friends!
Today is a SNOW day!!!

Surely I get to have a snow day off, too - 
even if it's only for the new challenge at The Ink Spot!

Sledding Riley is having a lot of fun, that's for sure ...
zipping down the hill.
And how I wish it were me :)
While we have a sunshine, palm tree laced, tropical paradise here,
I do miss my winter and snow very much!
So I am living vacariously through Riley ♥ 

Have you heard the news about the monthly stamp kits from The Ink Spot?
You may remember from this post - or from our Facebook page - 
that there is a super fun packed, wonderfully full
 stamp kit you can sign up for and it's delivered monthly, right to your mailbox!

Be sure to stop by all the designer's blogs 
to see what Winter Scenes they have created :)

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  24. I think Riley was in my back yard today! Blizzard in east central Illinois today, and more on the way. I'd rather have beaches and palm trees!
    I love all of the blue tones and mixed patterns. As always, you colored this little guy so well. Love it!

  25. You are so welcome to any snow that we might get here, but I'm happy to live in a place where that is seldom since I grew up where it snowed a lot! Love your adorable Riley card. I love using blues, whites, and silver for Winter cards. Hugs

  26. Delightful plus! You always seem to have just the right paper for your cards Kelly. Of course I love little Riley sledding away! Cute and fun card. No snow here either but we can always dream.
