Splash in the Puddles!

Oh friends, have you heard?
The Daily Marker has begun!

Being one of the Goodwill Ambassadors for this round,
 and this being my 5th year of coloring along with Kathy R's daily challenge,
AND this being one of my BIGGEST crafty goals I could ever hope for, 
I simply must say ...

color. color. COLOR!

It's a beautiful thing!

You can color a little, 
you can color a lot!
You can color just an image,
you can create a whole card :)

I've printed out a variety of my favorite stamp companies
(I could never chose just one!)
and I'll be posting a variety of stamps and coloring through-out February!
Today's card is the 'brother' to the one I posted yesterday.
Having a son brings back the fondest memories
of romping through mud puddles, splashing in the freshly fallen rain,
and playing in the yucky mud :) 

My son and I are very close 
and this Puddle Jumper stamp set from MFT Stamps makes me smile!
The sentiment is the same as yesterday, too - from Sending Blessings.
 One of the sweetest memories when I was creating this card:
I picked this sweet stamp set in person!

On my trip to MFT stamps in Eustis, Florida ...
Bucket list crafty moment:  CHECK!

The background is using the Swiss Dots embossing folder
and an array of Ranger Ink Distress oxides.

 Thanks for stopping by today!

I pray you are all staying safe in the storm 
and that it starts to warm up for all of you!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
