Cold and Snowy

Hi sweeties-
I am running late today.  I had a rough weekend with the little one. 
I ate something during Thanksgiving that effected the baby.
I didn't change laundry detergent, he wasn't wearing new clothes, so it had to be the food. 
He had red, hive looking bumps all over his body.  He wouldn't eat and was extremely fussy.
So all that just posed for an extra long weekend.  He is getting better, but slowly.
The move is this weekend...I can't wait to get settled in!!

Today is a new challenge over at SweetStamps.
The them is:
This is another one image that was created by Jaqueline Hill and November's release.
I love how she is peeking around the snowman.  The image is colored with Copic and all the shine is Stardust glitter glue.  I also added bits of SnowTex to the Christmas Trees.  I also used Echo Park Winter Park paper. I stamped the image on clear acetate using Cotton White Stazon ink.  Then I cut around the image and placed it on top.  I wanted to create the scene of being in the trees.
This is the card closed.
I had to turn off one of the lights, so that the camera could capture a little bit of the enormous amount of glitter that is actually on the card.
