Recover Soon

Happy Thursday! I woke up this morning to several inches of snow, which meant no school today! Yay! I am spending the day crafting to my heart's content.

I combined two challenges for this card: Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21 and Limelight Sketch & Product Challenge #38--to use buttons on your card. I'm hoping this will brighten a friend's day.

Two reminders:
You have until tomorrow night (midnight CST) to play along with the Everything But the Kitchen Sink challenge to use gift wrap. The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Verve Stamps!

Winter is collecting valentines throughout the month of January for the kids of St. Jude. Prizes will be given away to random winners. Please consider donating to this worthy cause. Thanks!

Stamps: On My Couch, On My Couch Additions (PTI)
Paper: Aqua Mist, Lemon Tart, Very Vanilla

Ink: Chocolate Chip

Accessories: PTI buttons, SU ribbon, dimensionals, Cuttlebug Argyle

Hooray for Snow Day! I got another today - school was open but my lil' car refused to go ice skating today ;D
Now would you believe it I've played with the same set for this same challenge! Just gotta get round to uploading it!
Enjoy your snow day!

Totally adorable card. What a great way to spend a snow day. I am working at home....and I'd rather be crafting!!! (Big surprise)

Love the buttons and how you used the colours :) Ah, you are another teacher friend that gets snow days!!! We have never had one...no matter how much it snows we have to show up!! Granted our city is used to snow and I guess if we had 3 feet fall one night we could stay home...but it's never happened :) I just like the idea of a surprise snow day :) Do you get many?

Love both the colours and the layout for this card. And that textured embossing in the background is perfect...reminds me of couch upholstery.

Super cute card Ann!! I love it! Happy snow day! :) It is snowing here too but no real accumulation yet... maybe though!

Tammy said...

Love the layout! And everything else about this card! I'd love a whole day to papercraft--not likely with two little ones. My hubby and I are both teachers--but there hasn't been a snow day yet this year--and we're in Canada!?!?

Just when I thought I didn't need this embossing folder...Love the simple design! I struggle to use yellow in a dominant way, but you did a lovely job.
