Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Today's card combines 2 challenges....the new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and the Ways To Use It challenge over at Splitcoast, which has the theme "Baby Its Cold Outside". I had to laugh at that because that's the EXACT name of the post I made on my Alaska blog the other day, when I woke to a temperature of -16. 300 miles north of me Fairbanks has been seeing temps of -45..yes 45 BELOW zero. Bet that makes your temps seem pretty warm by comparison :)

I used by Fireside Christmas stamp for this because when its that cold out our wood stove gets a good workout. So even though the stamp is a fireplace it portrays the same idea!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Fireside Christmas, Punch Pals, Merry Winter
Paper: Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Naturals White, Frostwood Lodge DSP
Ink: Black StazOn, Versamark, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Marina Mist, Elegant Eggplant, Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard, Always Artichoke, Basic Gray
Accessories: 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, blender pen, dimensionals
