I was thinking about Winter yesterday as we had some wet snow.  We originally had a “winter storm warning” as it was calling for 10 cm of snow but the storm warning ended and we didn’t get any accumulation.  It was certainly cold, though!

I was trying to tidy up my craft room for the small amount of time I spent in it yesterday (car was in the shop, I needed groceries, library books were begging to be returned, etc.) as I have a friend coming over to make Christmas cards today.  The tidying went quite well at first but somewhere between eating supper and going back to tidy, I started to make a card instead.  (oops!)

It could have happened to anyone.  I was industriously stacking my 6X6 pads of Christmas paper and a few strips fell out of a Basic Grey pad.  I meant to put them back in the pad but my muse called me and decided the strips were the perfect size to make a cute scrap card. 

This card was inspired by one I saw in a Papercrafts magazine a week or so ago.  I liked the use of the button underneath the sentiment and the smattering of rhinestones along the curve of the stamped image.  You can’t tell in the picture but the rhinestones are a soft green and match the paper quite well.

The best part is that this image took moments to colour so the card worked up quickly.   Another one for my stash and I believe it’s the first landscape orientation of the season. 

I hope to have a productive day with Karen so there might be something to share with you tomorrow.
