Let It Snow........just not yet :)

Good Morning! How's the weather where you are? Here, it's kind of cold especially in the mornings and evenings, but no snow yet. Our oldest two girls, Erin and Amy are coming to visit with our grandson Tyler soon. Last time they came it was also in November and it SNOWED! So, I'm getting ready for an early snow :) Tyler is almost 2 1/2 now and we can't wait to see him... (the girls too :)

Okay, onto the card:

I made this card for the SplitCoastStampers sketch challenge. You can see it here. It's a fun sketch and for this card, I really didn't stamp too much. I did however get to use my shimmery/glittery sticker paper that I have trouble using. You can't tell as well in the picture, but it's paper that looks like it is made with glitter, it's REALLY sparkly. The dp is from the DCWV Christmas stack, the ribbon from May Arts, the tag from Quickutz. I used Brillance Moonlight white to edge both of the patterned pieces before attaching them and I stamped the stampendous "let it snow" in Brillance Pearlescent sky blue. Nestabilities cut the scalloped squares that the snowflakes are on and the snowflakes are 3D embellies that I'm not sure who made. Easy as pie, and I will be making more of these, I just want to stamp more on some. Oh, there are some awesome ones in the gallery for this challenge, but I want to show you this one, because I think it is so eye-catching, I really love it. Do you love it?

I'm hoping to get some stamping done today. Our varsity volleyball team starts playoffs tonight so I think we're going to watch them. It's so cool to watch them play.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

It's really foggy and drizzly here today. It's gotten chilly, but not enough for snow yet!

Great card - very pretty!

No snow up here in Minnesota yet - it was 70 degrees yesterday (Thursday)! Going to be 60 degrees for Halloween - not too bad. :) Enjoy your visit with your girls and Tyler.
