Happiness Is Knowing You

Hello sweet friends.  I hope you've had an enjoyable weekend.  As I write this post I'm looking out the window to see more snow falling.  We're expecting to get anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of snow by tomorrow evening.  Spring is just around the corner ... right? 

Well, I thought this image would bring visions of warmer weather lol!  This little sweetie is Maxie With Snow Cone and I think she's such a cutie.  She's one of Lori's newer releases and you can find her in the By LORi Designs digi shop.  She's colored with copics and colored pencils and I added some Glamour Dust on the snowcone so that it sparkles like ice.    A ribbon and a button are my only embellishments.  While looking around Facebook earlier today I saw that the Sunday Showcase over on Designed to Color is ... one layer cards.  Well, I almost NEVER make one layer cards so I thought I would give it a go.  I have to say I kind of like the way it turned out :)

Thanks for stopping by and stay warm!

Hugs, Anita
