Another Post on a Snowy Day

THIS is what it looks like in my backyard right now. The snow is still falling -- 8-10 inches (possibly 12) by tomorrow. The kids are all home, Anna's doctor's appointment was cancelled, and Megan's volleyball tournament tomorrow has also been cancelled (whew!). I usually don't get a chance to post twice in one day, but hey -- there's not much else to do!! Since today's Limited Supplies Challenge is quick mini cards, it didn't take long for me to put this one together. I combined it with the Color Challenge that Cammie posted on the Gina K Designs forum at SCS. This card is 4" square. All images on this card are from Gina K Designs. The focal image and sentiment are from Baskets of Happiness, and they are stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black ink on SU! Shimmery White cardstock. I used Scalloped Frames & Doodles on the scalloped circle. The image is colored with Copics, and I sponged around the circle with Certainly Celery ink. I need to get a little spring wherever I can right now, so this card will have to do! :) I think that's all for me today -- if the snow keeps falling, I just might have several projects to share tomorrow!!


Stamps: Baskets of Happiness, Scalloped Frames & Doodles (Gina K Designs) Ink: Certainly Celery, White Craft (SU!), Brilliance Graphite Black Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac, Shimmery White (SU!) Paper: Prints Sampler (SU!) Other: Copic markers, Giga Scalloped Circle Punch & Mega Circle Punch (Marvy Uchida), dotted ribbon (May Arts), 1/8" handheld punch, Stamping Sponge, Stampin' Dimensionals (SU!)
