I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Let It Snow for SFYTT and Curtain Call Color Challenges

Let It Snow! Easy for me to say living in San Diego.  :)

We did have some cool, drippy weather this past weekend. Perfect for staying in and stamping. I got several cards made. Three for challenges and more Halloween cards to send to family.

Here, for your enjoyment is a card I made for both Jen's SFYTT challenge and Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge, Act 52. When all done, I decided that I really, really like how it turned out. The colors are so interesting together, especially when used for non-traditional Christmas colors. Before actually deciding on my design, I pulled out pieces of SU card stock in each of the colors. Then I went looking through my stash of papers. I had just received the new Snow Day Project Pantry kit from Taylored Expressions and was excited to see that some of the papers match the bermuda bay, tangerine tango and chocolate chip very well. I was also excited to see that the rub-ons in the set work perfectly for the focal point on the card.
