*It's Cold Out There!*

OK, time to complain about the weather... the forecast for today, just last night on the 11pm news, was for 19* C (that's about 66*F) and afternoon thundershowers.  Instead, we woke up to grey and drizzle and at 1pm it's a whopping 7*C (45*F) outside!!!  WTF??!!!  I had to turn the furnace on as I was just too cold in the house, even with my heavy sweater on!

The good news about the weather is that I don't feel guilty spending the day in my creative space.... let's see if I manage to get creative.

I did manage to get a little creative last night... made two cards!  I'm not honestly sure I love either of them, but whatever....

This card using the current colours for the ColourQ challenge as well as the Casual Friday sketch challenge.
Items Used:
*Cardstock: PTI White; Stampin' Up! Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede
*Images: A*Muse
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Soft Suede
*Tools: Big Shot; Spellbinders Nestabilities; Stampin' Up! scallop border punch
*Challenges:  ColourQ#87; CFC#5

The more I look at this card, the more I wish I had sent the one white layer (right under the sentiment) through my Big Shot with an embossing folder....  Otherwise I'm OK with this card... the mostly white with a few blasts of colour was the look I was going for.... didn't get it perfect, but I will try again!

Thanks for popping by!
