Stay Warm

Friday-I'm doing my happy dance! This week has been SOOOOOOO busy at work that I am ready to wrap up today and start my weekend. The best news is that its a long weekend with Monday being Martin Luther King Day, and although I don't have any major plans, I am just excited to be able to have an extra day to do whatever I need/want to do. Only around 8 more hours of work until it begins!
And since it is Friday, it is time for a party, Paint Party Friday! Thanks Eva and Kristen for hosting.
And I'm also linking my piece to Art Journal Journey. Thanks Chrissie for hosting and picking this month's theme of Winter Wonderland.
Here's a Gelli print  with a hand cut heart and these great snuggling polar bears. Has anyone been stamping a long time and remember when these adorable bears by Magenta seemed to be everywhere? I dug  mine in out of the bottom of a bin. I'd forgotten about them, but then I was trying to think of things for a winter wonderland theme and I remembered I had them.
It was fun to "find" them again. I think those of you who stop by AJJ might be seeing more from this set.

The white paint on top of the colors in this Gelli print reminds me of frost and that crackly ice on puddles that if you stand on it it breaks with a lot of noise.
Thanks to all of you who stop by!
And
hope you have a good weekend everyone!
