A Scarf For Three

So did you vote?? Calvin and I just got back from voting - I hate to say this - because I know there are many of you out there waiting hours in line to vote - but I literally just walked in my polling place and voted with no wait! WOO HOO!! We live in a small district - it's sort of a growing district - it will get bigger as they continue to develop the area - but it sure was nice to be in a small voting district today. I felt SO bad for the voters in the larger district who vote at the same polling place - the line was all the way out the church doors - but it's worth it, right?? So I was playing around with another one of the MFT Stephanie Fizer images over the weekend and wanted to share the card I made with the "Scarf for Three" image with you. I just love this adorable image and it was SO much fun to color!! I colored my image in with Copics and then used a white gel pen to add a snow-y background. I'm a big fan of scarves and that pink and green color combo - so I would LOVE to have a scarf like theirs, wouldn't you? LOL!! I tried to keep the "3" theme going throughout the card - I remember from my advertising class in college that groupings in "3's" and other odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye - I think it has something to do with there being a middle object to focus your eye on in groups of odd numbers. Anywho - I embossed my 3 light blue panels with the Cuttlebug Snow Dots embossing folder and added a group of 3 snowflakes to the bottom of my card - I put a Hero Arts pink gemstone in the center of each snowflake brad. I used the new Martha Stewart Checkerboard edge punch to do the border under my snowman image. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and the sentiment came with the MFT snowman image. Speaking of MFT - they are having a release week as well with some AWESOME new releases this month - the MFT release party is this Wednesday from 9-11 PM EST over on SCS.
One more pic I wanted to share with you today - this is my Calvin standing outside our polling place today - check out his sticker - LOL!! I've been taking my kids to vote with me since they were babies - I think it's wonderful to be able to include them and show them the wonderful right that waits for them when they turn 18 - they are the future of our country after all and I want to make sure my kiddos know how important it is to get out there and vote!! ;) Thanks so much for stopping by - be sure to stop back by tomorrow - I've got a SUPER SWEET treat for you!!!!
