Hi Ladies. Today I made two very fast and easy cards. As some of you may know by now I participate in the Pals Paper Arts challenge every week. This week the challenge is a theme challenge and the theme is Snowflakes. This was a tad difficult for me because I do not have any snowflake stamps. So I made do with what I do have. :) Every thing that I used is from Stampin'UP!
Here is my first card.
I wanted to make this a general winter card and thought that a thank you card would be
a good idea. I used Whisper White, Soft Suede and Real Red card-stock. The designer paper I used is from th holiday catalog and is no longer being sold. I used the Snowflake punch, the Word Window punch and the Modern Label punch. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I used brass brads and the newest embossing folder called Perfect Polka Dots.
Here is my second card.
I made this card using My Digital Studio from Stampin'UP!. It is a photo card.
I used a photo that I took last week, snowflake stamps that are available in the MDS program, embellishments, designer paper and other stamps. I thought this would be a very cool way to send out some cards during the winter just to say hello. All I have to do is print them out and send them. How is that for quick and easy?
I wish I had lots to tell you but with the bitter cold weather we have been getting I have been limited to where I can go or how long I am able to be outdoors. On Thursday I did my food shopping for the week because I knew that it was going to be brutal on Friday. It was still quite cold Thursday so I did my shopping as fast as I could. On Friday I had an appointment and of course I had to stop off at a few stores because I had forgotten a few things on Thursday. Oh my goodness it was truly quite cold! I had 4layers of clothing on, a scarf, hat and gloves and I was still very cold. Needless to say I went from store to store as quickly as I could and came home as fast as I could. This is not my kind of weather. It is so strange how most of the US is having very cold weather. The states that normally have warm weather this time of the year are experiencing snow and ice. Very strange indeed!
Well, I will be back again when I have more to share with you. In the mean time stay warm, stay safe and Smile.:) Oh and have a wonderful week.
