2S4Y41 - Little Things



Hi everyone! How are your weekend plans shaping up? We were supposed to be hosting a small family Christmas party here for 15 people, but it looks as though we're going to have to cancel due to snow. Our forecasters are predicting ohhhh a FOOT, so I'm guessing it's going to dampen our plans. :( I've been staying up even later than usual working on things trying to get the house ready, and wrapping the gifts for my hubby's family who were going to be here tomorrow (since we won't be seeing them on Christmas). LOL, I feel like it was all for naught! Okay, pity party over, I feel better now that I've gotten it out of my system... *wink*

This card was created using the 2 Sketches 4 You #41 sketch. I flipped the sketch on the side, and the card measures 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" (it's a 1/2" shorter to allow for the butterfly overhang).

This card came together pretty easily... I love it when that happens! It's a little on the bright side, but it's just what I need to perk me back up!

I'm off to do some baking with my daughter... How fitting is it that we were going to make snowflake cookies for her friends this year!!! :) Have a great weekend!

Supplies:
Stamps - Happiness Always, Polka Dot Basics
Ink - Kiwi Kiss, True Black, Fresh Snow
Paper - Stamper's Select White, Bermuda Bay, Black & White Basics
Miscellaneous - Raspberry Fizz Grosgrain Ribbon, Sizzix Butterfly Die, Raspberry Fizz Button, Spring Moss Button

This is great, Heather! I love how you changed the orientation of the sketch for your card! I had lots of plans that will probably be canceled tomorrow, but I'm still looking forward to the snow! Enjoy it!

OK - how come a foot of snow cancels plans? Don't you people know how to drive in the snow? *giggles* Great card - love the use of the Black & White Basics...another paper I am skeered to use but you work it in and the card doesn't look heavy at all. So pretty.
