It’s Friday and time for the latest Thomas Kinkade release. Seriously…this is one of my favorite images yet! Once again it’s one of the smaller vignette sizes so it takes less time to color and is also super easy to work with on a card design. The hardest part of this project is going to be who to give it to!I kept this design nice and icy by using soft blues in cardstock and Copic markers. This image really pops when stamped in black ink…looks great. I decided to go with a more misty look for this design and tried stamping it in London Fog Memento ink. It’s a gorgeous soft blue grey and it still works great with those Copic Markers. If you’ve never tried Memento Inks…they are my favorite go-to inks now. Love them! One thing I AM looking for though is a beautiful aqua dye ink. I have the Ranger Adirondack Aqua but find it a tiny bit light for my taste. I have a nice aqua shade in chalk ink but I’d love a dye ink color. I have one requirement for it…it needs to be retailer friendly. That means something I can buy at a stamp or scrap retail store. If you’ve found one…I’d love to hear what it is.

Now I don’t usually do this but…I’m going to take the weekend off from blogging. I’ve been getting headaches all week and this week has been a wild one to say the least, so don’t worry when I don’t show up tomorrow. I’m fine. I just need to take a deep breath. 😉
Have a great weekend and see you Monday!
