When I looked out my window this morning this was what greeted me:

I know it's not the best photo, but I wasn't going out in that until I had to so a quick shot through the window and screen will have do. Mine's the car in the middle. My honey had cleaned a lot of the snow off for me, but I still had a ways to go before I was getting out of there. It seemed like all of the snow had drifted up around my car for some reason.

The good news is that I finally got to work (3 hours late) and was able to get a couple of photos of cards that I've made over the last few days. The first is the weekly challenge from the PTI forum. Jen provided the sketch and I threw the rest together.

I used PTI colors-Lavender Moon, Plum Pudding, Raspberry Fizz, and Fresh Snow. I combined a few different stamp sets for my patterned paper and focal point-Garden of Life, Polka Dot Basics, and Honey Bees. My little white flowers are centered with Diamond Dots stickers from Stampendous and they are pretty sparkly in person.

The next card I is one I made over the weekend. I decided that my Penny Black stamp really needed to see some ink so I stamped and colored and put together this fun card. I really like the combo of PTI's True Black and Raspberry Fizz. I am SO happy that PTI finally released a black cardstock!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope everyone stays safe if they're out in this lovely weather system that has been hitting so many of us. If you can, stay warm and snuggly at home--but if you do have to drive, slow down please. It's not worth risking an accident to get somewhere a few minutes earlier. Take care.

I like both these cards, but I especially love the bottom one--so cheery and colorful!

Your "designer paper" on the birthday card is fabulous! I was wondering where you got paper that so closely matched that wonderful scribble flower in Garden of Life!
