Catherine & Cathy Create 19


Happy Saturday! Yesterday it was a battle between my dislike of snow and the fact that I got the day off because of it! Yes, I hate snow and cold and all of the other winter stuff but a three day week with a surprise Friday off, that pretty awesome! There wasn’t much else to do besides craft so that exactly what I did! I also spoke to my cousin in England for an hour, that was nice, I miss her! Oh, and I watched Oblivion with Tom Cruise, pretty good. I wanted to share this picture that was taken from my window to show you how lovely a morning it was! There are many more houses in the distance but the snow caused white-out conditions!


Enough about the weather! I’m over on the Catherine & Cathy Create blog for this month’s card challenge. All we ask is for a little doodle on your project! I wanted to keep my card simple so this is what I came up with. The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Marina Mist (very neglected color) with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for my background and then took my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker and “doodled”! As you can see I’m not a very good doodler! The fun circles are from the Spiral Spins Stamp Set and are stamped in Calypso Coral and Marina Mist and punched out with the 1 3/8″ and 1/2″ Circle Punches. For the greeting I used the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set, stamped it in Calypso Coral and punched it out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. All of the pieces are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I had to have the Spiral Spins Set because it reminds me of Spirograph and I thought the color combo was different! I appreciate you dropping by to see my card for the Catherine & Cathy Create cards challenge. Click on over to the blog and see what the rest of the Design Team have done and do a little doodle on a card and enter it in the gallery! Have a fun and frost free Saturday! 🙂
