I don’t know why but shades of green just don’t photograph well for me. I got a new OTT lamp for Christmas and I just haven’t figured it out for photos yet. Perhaps I’ll try colored card stock for the background next time. Anyway, I apologize again for the lousy pictures.
I am still utilizing the pieces and parts that I have laying about on my desk. You must think my desk is a total mess. Actually, I have an old candle holder that unused pieces and parts get thrown into. I, also, have a small box that catches all the small-but-usable pieces of card stock. My objective is to use these pieces up first…whenever possible.
Before the holiday, Jesse was kind enough to crank out a bunch of small snowflakes using the Big Shot and Snowflakes Set #2. A few of the flakes found their way into the holder and I’ve found use for them on the cards I have to show you today. I always hope for snow!! Now, before you boo me and close your browser, let me explain. I’m from Ohio and winter meant snow and ice and gross dirty snow piles on the roadside for as long as it was cold. I’m now on the Virginia coast and we get cold without the snow. It’s just plain old depressing. At least in the snow, you can send the kids out to play in it. Around here, a little snow means schools are closed and businesses shut down. It’s actually totally hilarious! But I love the snow! First thing I do in the occasional snowfall is catch a flake or two on my tongue. Yes, I love to see it snow, dance in the snow, make snowmen and watch my boys play in it. Now that you know where I’m coming from, let me get to the deets. Both are very simple cards. The main panel is Sage Shadow. The first card is mounted on a Whisper White card base and the second is on Sahara Sand. The swirl is from the Baroque Motifs set stamped in VersaMark. DSP is from the retired Wintergreen pack (I love that paper). A length of Close to Cocoa grosgrain ribbon on both and a quick sentiment and we are done! ‘Let it Snow’ is from Punch Pals set and ‘Happy New Year’ is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Both stamped in Basic Black ink. Easy!
I’m not ready to give up on a good snowfall just yet. We usually get at least one good one each year. My father-in-law says it is always when the circus is in town. That’s usually in February. I can wait until then =) Thanks for stopping in today.
