Oh, I think I forget to tell you it was snowing yesterday morning when I got up. The best part, it snowed all day. We got about eight inches and we are supposed to get some more tomorrow night and then again over the weekend. I guess the winter isn’t finished just yet. Yesterday’s snow was the heavy wet kind, if I have to deal with snow I would rather the powdery kind. I have so much experience with it this year! Who knew there were so many choices?! LOL! I will say one thing for snow, we did get out of work early again today! You know it’s bad when I would rather be at work than deal with the snow! Here is a little picture I took last night, that’s a lot of snow!
Now on to the fun stuff! Today I have my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. This week our sketch is provided by Julee Tilman…
When I saw the sketch I saw the opportunity for a little collage style! The base of my card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. For the first layer of the background I used a piece of Real Red. My banner is a piece of paper from the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack that I cut out with the Banners Framelits Dies. I also cut out a piece of Whisper White to back it with so it would be a little sturdier when I adhered it to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I slid a piece of Red Glimmer Paper behind it on an angle. My piece of Crumb Cake is stamped with one of the Paper Pumpkin stamps in Crumb Cake and then I rounded the corners with the 3/16″ Corner Rounder. My greeting is from the Just Sayin’ Stamp Set and is stamped in Coastal Cabana and cut out with the Word Bubbles Framelits Dies. Another piece of Red Glimmer Paper is cut out with the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies. My two little speech bubbles are from last month’s Paper Pumpkin and are stamped in Real Red and Coastal Cabana and cut out with my Paper Snips. Are you impressed that I remembered to use Coastal Cabana?! LOL! I really like the subtle collage and the colors, well we know I’m liking those! There it is, my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I hope that you enjoyed it and thanks for paying me a visit! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
