those wintery whites, grays/silvery and light blue tones match very well to this idea I had --

the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday card is for my mom and her favorite color is blue and I also wanted to keep it winter season colors too instead of lots of reds or pinks

  8. On another note, Mr. Bennett is adorable and looks well loved!

    1. Chuckle!! Mr. B, Ben-Ben, Benny and the Jets, Buddy are his nicknames!!! We rescued/took over ownership about 19 months ago and we've been in love with him from that moment. He's a Chihuahua and miniature Schnauzer mix. At only 5 1/2 lbs. when we got him, we now varies between 6 1/2-7 lbs. He's had some past physical abuse, developed anxiety when put at a house with 4 massive dogs compared to him (Rottweilers), and then moved from house to house for most of the year previous to that. The first six weeks were tough but he's been doing amazing since then. He's feeling very secure with us! :)

    2. I am so glad to hear he is now with you folks. The Lord loves all of His creation and we reflect His image when we love as He loves! When I watch the jets I will have to pull for them in honor of Benny!

  9. Congratulations on your GDT position Becca - this is a lovely card - well done. The stamping is fabulous
