Turning Wednesday's 'Ooops' . . .

. . . into today's beautiful card creation!

Hello my friends!
Yep, if you stopped by on Wednesday you know what I'm referring to!
And after using the 'teal' ink over my snowflake 'die cut stencil' ... it actually was quiet pretty once dried and more of a teal color then it's original medium blue color!  
SO ... decided to use it for my second card which I'm entering into the current 'Teal Snowflakes' challenge at Classy Cards n Such.

Grrrr!  I struggle with achieving 'TRUE' color when taking photographs!  Trust me, this is more teal IRL then it looks in my photos!
How do you like my medicine bottles in the background!  I purchased them while out in Indiana in the Fall with my Midwest crafting friends and think they are SO appropriate for this time of year!  
I don't know about you, but I know I've been taking my share of 'Pertussin' (had a cold for 2 weeks) as well as using the ole 'Liniment' on these aching bones over the past few weeks!
This getting old is for the birds!  LOL!

I hope you'll come join in the 'Teal Snowflake' challenge fun ... you still have a bit of time!  
Challenge ends Saturday at Midnight (CST).

your work is just simply amazing. your shading is like nothing else i can compare to and i hope this year i can learn from it... which means i'll probably be CASE-ing you alot. that's good right?

yep. stay warm. this is way too cold for my old bones. even puppy doesn't want to go out in it.
