*I Miss My Flipflops*

Well, I did manage to find a little creativity last night while Matthew was out.... I created three more cards last night, for a total of 4 yesterday.  I'd say that's a recent record for me.  I've been sitting at my craft table for an hour now and haven't managed to get myself off the computer.  I wonder if I'll get anything other than laundry and snow shoveling accomplished today....

Yes, I said snow shoveling.... we got another 3-4 inches last night.  We've had a lot of snow this year and many of the towns and cities at lower elevations and along rivers are dealing with a severe threat of flooding.  We have had a lot more snow this winter (and into spring) than we usually get.

I don't know about you, but I'm done with snow.  Yes, where I live, we can expect to get snow in April.... but we've never had snow on the ground for this many months in a row.

All I'm asking is for weather that is flipflop friendly!!!  Is that too much to ask??!!

Anyway.... here's the card I created last night for the current MojoMonday sketch using the current ColourQ challenge....
Items Used:
*Cardstock: PTI White:  Stampin' Up! Kraft, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Cherry Cobbler
*Images: Hampton Art
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Kiwi Kiss; Memento Tuxedo Black

*Tools: Big Shot;  Spellbinders Bloom die; Martha Stewart border punch
*Embellishments: twine from The Twinery; Stampin' Up! ribbon; unknown button
*Challenges:  Mojo186; ColourQ#80



I was really perplexed with this sketch until I chose my colours and started playing with it.... and you know what?  I really like it!

Enjoy your day!

I am so done with snow, winter, cold weather etc. After being teased earlier this week with sun and warmer temps., we are now having cold weather and snow flurries! Ugh! At least we don't have to shovel flurries! I hope the weather improves in your neck of the woods soon so you can wear your beloved "blip blops!"

Love the card. I really like this weeks Mojo sketch and I also made a card for it.

Love this one, Nancy!

I am with on the weather. I just want to get out for walks in the evening again. Yes, as my hubby pointed out...I can still go for a walk. It's just not as enjoyable with the snow!!!

Oh, I like it, Nancy! This sketch had me stumped, too... but I may have to take a closer look now that I've seen what you did with it! Hope you get to wear your flipflops again soon, girl!
