Snow Covered... and goodbye.

Sadly, today is my last post for Catherine and Cathy Create.  These two very busy ladies (and extremely talented to boot) are saying good bye to their joint blog.  If you want to still follow them make sure you visit In the Cat Cave and Catherine Loves Stamps to stay in touch.

Today's challenge is all about winter and snow. Personally I love snowy cards, but I'm not of lover of Winter.  I think I should have been born in Florida!

Here's my card...

Here are the details:

Cardstock: Whisper White, Brushed Silver
Stamps: White Christmas, Holiday Home
Ink: Momento Black, SU Markers
Tools: Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, Holiday Home Framelits, Deco Labels Framelits

You Made My Day!

That's exactly how I felt when I got the email from Holly asking me to be quest designer for Sunday Stamps for the month of October.  If you visited me a couple of weeks ago you know my first card was for their sketch challenge; today they have a colour challenge.
The Stampin' Up! colours are Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie & Tempting Turquoise.

I've been trying some new techniques lately so I can share them with my stamp club.  For this card I used the baby wipe technique.  If you are not familiar with it you can see it here.

Here's my card...

Here are the details:

Stamps: Four Feathers, And Many More, Gorgeous Grunge
Cardstock: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie.
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise.
Tools: Feathers Framelits.
Accessories: Linen Thread.
