Hooray for Snow Day!


Well the snow's still here and I'll admit that although I love my job, this morning the voice saying, "It's Wednesday the 6th of January, school is closed today due to snow," was music to my ears LOL!

So time to get inky! I'm becoming quite a fan of the CAS cards, mainly because they're so easy and quick to make ;D

Card Recipe
Stamps: Taylored Expresions - Doctor's Orders
Ink: Memento Black/Distress Inks - Vintage Photo & Antique Linen
Card: PTI White/Kraft from scraps/Cosmo Cricket - The Boyfriend
Accessories: Fine Black Pen/Little Clippie!
/Corner Punch

This card popped into my head as I was drifting to sleep last night as I need to make one for Chris' mum. She was due to go in for an operation (nothing serious, don't worry!) but it's now been postponed due to the snow! Well at least we have the card ready. For once I am organised!

This card also qualifies for today's challenge, Metal Mania over on 365 cards - pure coincidence I promise!

I'm also dedicating this card to my buddy Emma (I know she's a huge fan of those little clippies!) who I've missed around Blogland recently! Big healing hugs to you and your family sweetie!

Would you believe that I've actually got a backlog of creations to upload?!?! Oh how I wish I could stay home everyday and play! Don't get used to me posting everyday, it'll only end in tears LOL!

Catch ya later!

I couldn't agree more Aimes, snow days rock! If only I could play on mine, as long as I can connect to the network I still have to work!

Absolutely adore this card!! Never seen anything like it before! I'm feeling I might need to get that set and some of those mini clipboards!!

Emma said...

Super-cute card.
Poor Chris's mum - there's nothing worse than being cancelled and prolonging the waiting time.
You have been a busy bee recently, haven't you. Puts me to shame!
Alison, x
