Snow Day-Whoot! Whoot!
Yup..I got a snow day!!! I love it since it is Monday and I am just like a kid clicking my heels:) It actually is quite bad and am glad that I am not travelling today. My hubby looks like a snowman pushing his snowblower and, since we are on a corner lot, we have a lot of sidewalk! He is also such a nice guy (although Mr ADHD man grumbles) that he does many other neighbours' sidewalks (is that right with the apostrophe???). He deserves something special so I shall make a nice lunch....cue the awessss or the wretching:)
A perfect time to create cards! I made a couple yesterday and they are not Christmas!
Background patterned (Holy paper Batman she used patterned paper!) paper in coral, Dark cherry paper and white cardstock. Cuddlebug, embossing sandwich-butterfly, Dark red and lighter red dye ink, grey perfect powders, The "ILove You" stamp, my favourite punch-flower set platinum embossing powder, red flower crystals.
Colour Q-Colours-Strawberry Slush, Cherry Cobler, Calypso Coral, Going Gray, & Neutral(white)
Dream Valley- Valentine's Day
FairyTale Stampers- Favourite Punch
Glitter and Sparkle-Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland-Lots of Layers
So this is for my man...who else? The Postman? The Milkman? The Pusherman? I may live in suburbia but I am not a valium ridden soccer mom or any mom except for furry babies. So I tried something different and went by the colours from Colour Q. I stamped up the embossing folder, ran it through the machine and then used a lighter red over the top embossed parts. There are 3 layers not counting the I love you sign at top which has push up dots for added dimension. You know,it's like the bra that many women use to highlight their bodacious ta-ta's. I did use the versa dye pad to hold the gray powder in place and for the added touch I used my favourite punch which is the flower punch. I don't think it's too girly and, it is meant for mushy times.
Bright pink, shimmer white and basic white cardstock, Lavender and Hot Pink dye ink, Cuddlebug and sizzex machine, Embossing sandwich-hearts and flowers, dye cut centre, hedgehog stamp, pastel chalk, stickles and sticker.

I have had Mr. Hedgehog whom I shall call Otto, for quite a long time but the design cut out I recently bought and is only 2 months old! I can use that design on any paper and with my handy dandy sizzex machine it cuts out this design likity split! I used the cuddlebug and the hearts and flowers embossing folder that I dyed up with lavender colour. I took the hot pink dye pad and just grazed it over the top and the embossed parts came out in pink. I thought I would try a 3rd colour and realized it came out in that wondrous colour called Cat ca-ca so I stopped and did my best to hide the ..um...ick. This is for a sweet girl who turns 8 today ( not the ick part)!
I think we have at least a foot or more of snow and it is still going strong. My hubby has been outside for a good 3 hours and true to his patient and diplomatic nature, told the snowplow man he is an idiot and to stop making a mess of everyone's driveways. What we think, he says! Have a great Day and week!
