Happy Holidays from Florida!

Happy Monday!!!!  I am here today with a FUN, WARM Card from Florida!!!  I have to say I would love some Cold Weather anytime now!!  I think we had maybe 4-5 days of cooler weather scattered about. UGH!!  Yep, were rocking flip flops and the air condition is on with the Christmas tree up!! 

I decided to create how I feel using Flirty Flamingos stamp set. It works perfectly for us Floridians.  I first, stamped the Flamingos in some Cherry Blossom Staz On Ink. I then covered them with a mask of post it tape and distress Inked the sunset. We have some beautiful sunsets in the winter time. Then I colored the flamingos with copic markers, they are easy to color since they are not very large.  For the beach I used gold glitter tape for a festive feel.

Next, I cut a circle out of some baby blue paper and added dots of snow with the snow marker....sigh....I wish it would snow....ok back to 80 Degree reality.  To complete the festive card I used the small santa hat and sentiment from Flaky Family (Currently Sold Out). But, the hats on Winston's Home for Christmas or Holiday Hounds would work too!
