Case this Sketch #58 - Hey There

Hey there!  Are you stranded at home?  I just heard on the news that Western New York (where I live in Buffalo, NY) was the snowiest place in the country today!  Buffalo is right on Lake Erie and I live just on the outskirts of Buffalo in a city called Lackawanna.  We were in the eye of this storm since yesterday.  Our schools were closed today, and I just got a phone call that we are closed tomorrow as well!  I hope that's all the snow days we will have to use because we only have three allowable snow days in our schedule before they start taking days away from other vacations.  Fingers crossed!
But since I was home today, I spent about 5 hours in my craft room.  I only made two cards and a tissue box cover (the other card and tissue box will be shown over the next two days), but it felt good to be down there!  I love this first card I made.  I wanted to color today with my distress markers and chose this cute Whipper Snapper fox to color.  I stamped the WPlus9 sentiment then added some snowflakes (since snow was on my mind today!) with a stencil and modeling paste.  I also added some shimmer to the snowflakes with a Wink of Stella brush.  The fox's nose was given some shine with glossy accents.

I used the sketch from Cas(e) this Sketch.  I think it's pretty CAS, don't you?

This card made me think about all the animals that are outside in this cold weather and I worry about them.  We have lots of deer and I've seen a fox and even a coyote in my yard before.  We also have a few stray cats.  I hope they've found some shelter from this cold weather.  And I hope all of you are safe and warm today too!  Thanks for stopping by!
