Color Challenge 305

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday, I took a bit of a break to get my housework done. It was a quiet day here with Fluffy at the groomers and it snowed most of the day! It was a beautiful sight but I hope it's a one & done deal. Back in PA we see snow all the time and after last year's 5 foot in one week, well that did me in! LOL

Today is a new day and before I move on to my Color Challenge card, I would like to personally wish my best friend back in PA...A Very Happy Birthday!! Deb K, I hope you have a great day! We miss you bunches!

The colors for today's Color Challenge #305 over at SCS are: Cherry Cobbler, Pretty in Pink & Melon Mambo. All great choices for making Valentine's cards!
Check out my card...



Again I applied an old set that was collecting dust...Happy Heart Day! Very cute set and one that is part of my personal stamp challenge! WooHoo! Stamp set #4..

I used a new Sizzix Embossing Folder that I picked up at Micheal's and also a new Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch. I colored my image with Copics and cut it out with the Circle & Lacey Circle Nestibilities. Then added my ribbon and my tag with a cool heart clothes pin that I found at Micheal's as well. I'm really liking my card today but i'm sure when I go to mail this card out it's gonna be costly due to the bulk! *Ughhh, can't win!


As I said previously, we had snow all day yesterday. Probably lucky if we got 2-3 inches. Just wanted to share 2 pics I snapped this morning hanging out the bedroom window. LOL It it pretty stinkin cold here to be outside. My weather thingy on my side bar said 9 degrees for 10am! Burrrr! Stay warm where ever you are today!

Now that is an older set that I don't own. It is very cute! Yep, the bulk will get ya every time. Carol is a good one for making things flatter, and I have tried to think about that more as I create. I am sitting here waiting for the first flakes start falling. Have a great day.

Oh how sweet! I used to have that stamp set....such a CUTE one! We got about 2" of snow on Saturday here in PA, and starting this evening we're supposed to get 3-5 more. Sigh.....

(I'm REALLY ready for spring)

OMGosh, I just used this same stamp set this afternoon and posted the card on SCS!! It's the only Valentine set I own! LOL I'll never sell it because of the great tag stamp! Your card is really cute and I love the hearts border punch! Those are beautiful photos of the snow, and it looks like you have a real nice little piece of property out there in MO! I'm bracing for the latest round of white stuff about to fall in PA! Set to begin at any moment and last until tomorrow sometime. OY!!

I love those older sets, this is adorable, great colors and design and cute how you decorated inside. Look at that snow, we haven't had much this month, compared to last month.
