Brr, winter has arrived here overnight and it is quite chilly this morning! We've been very spoiled this year with temperatures at or above freezing, when often we are getting down to -30C in January (and sometimes -40C, even -45C when it's really bad!), so I can't complain, though! But the cold winds of winter make me long for spring, and this cutie definitely warms me up :)
I found this new to me Jillybean Soup paper on a recent foray to a local scrapbook store. There was barely anything new; I can't wait for the CHAreleases! Though it will take at least a month for those products to make their way to Canada.
It's not very often that I use a stamp twice in as many months, but I just love this adorable MFT Chrysanthemum Pure Innocence! I wasn't happy with how the flower turned out last time though, so I went searching on the 'net to see how others had coloured it. I should have known to check one of my favourite blogs I follow... Michele Boyer had done this same image, and her flower was gorgeous! (As was the whole thing!) I did my best imitation of her colouring on my flower :) Leaving those bits of white really added the dimension I was missing the first time!
This layout was the first MFT sketch challenge for 2012. Hopefully I can manage to play along a lot more often this year!

Time for me to drop kiddo #1 off at school, then home to clean the house. Oh goody! :) I hope you have more excitement planned for your day than I do for mine :)
