O Summer, Where Art Thou?

Cold...Snow...Freezing Rain...School Closings...Shoveling...Wind Chills...Subzero temperatures...that about sums up the week we've had here in Wisconsin. To make things even worse they are calling for 12 more inches of snow tonight. YUCK! Winter hit hard and early this year. I am SO not a cold weather person. To help boost my gloomy winter spirit I decided to make a card that at least reminds me of the warm, happy days of summer.
This card uses the newly released "You're Invited" stamp along with some of my other summer favorites! Oh how I wish I was going to a backyard barbecue instead of going out to shovel yet more snow...
Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU CS, Sharpie and Prismacolor markers, Shimmerz paints, Cuttlebug embossing folder, brads.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a warm and sunny day!

Non-traditional colors

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I thought I would share 2 more Chin Up snowman cards that I made with my design team set this month from Firecracker Designs. For both of these cards I went with non-traditional Christmas/Winter colors. Winter hit early and hard in Wisconsin this year and I've been suffering from the winter weather blues. I thought maybe I would try and cheer myself up with some bright, fun pinks and oranges. This snowman stamp is just so stinkin cute and I love the pink/orange combo with it!

Supplies used: Chin Up snowman from FCD, SU CS, Fancy Pants DP, Sharpie markers, MS snowflake punch, self adhesive rhinestones, foam dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, MM brads, misc ribbon.
