Good morning!

It's still plenty cold around here with our highs hovering just above freezing. At least there isn't any new snowfall on the forecast in the immediate future. The constant bundling up did inspire me to print out this beauty called 'Baby it's cold outside' from The East Wind and create a card with her. I decided to grab my R80 family of Copics since they are underused in my collection and once I paired that mauve pink with the warm greys to make the plaid scarf it totally reminded my of a shirt I had as a kid back in the 80's, LOL! This pretty gal is totally pulling off the look though. The birch bark background paper is more of that Simple Stories Winter Wonderland collection and I think it adds to the cold, outdoorsy feel that I was going for. :)

Well, I should get moving... got a full to-do list to tackle today.
