... I wish!

Ah, snow. Around here, we can't buy snow before mid-January. My parents, who live in Texas, occasionally have a white Christmas. We caught one there once. In Texas. Yeah.

Last winter, we had record cold, but it didn't help. The storm that became Snowmageddon #1 at my sister's (in the DC area) sat here the day before and poured a cold, miserable 33-degree rain.

So, only a fool would go looking for an early snow here, but, you know, I'm just that kind of fool. A girl can dream, right?

With that in mind, here's today's entry:

This one's for the challenges at:
Tip Top Tuesday - Buttons Galore
Fab N Funky Challenges - Forget Me Not (Use a stamp that hasn't gotten any love in a while.)
Pile it On - Winter
Paper Play Challenges - Let It Snow
Stampin' B's - Snowflakes
Totally Papercrafts - Snow and Snowflakes

So, how's I make it?
This is a side-step card! You can find directions at Splitcoast.
Stamp: Penny Black (One of the first ones I ever bought! I had forgotten about it!)
I used a Cutlebug folder to emboss the white and red cardstocks. (CS is Bazzill)
Paper on the bottom rung is The Paper Studio, green print is K&Co.
Letters are cut on the Cuttlebug, "You're Not the  Boss of Me"
Snowflakes are Jolee's; buttons are Oriental Trading. Ink is Brilliance in Graphite.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I appreciate your visit and your comment!
OK, now, y'all. I know it's 70-something out today, but let's hit it anyway! "The weather outside is frightful, but the fire's so delightful..."

Have a wonderful week!

Winter CAS

Happy fall, y'all! I've been crazy-busy with a new grade level (fourth), doing the team-mom thing for AJ's tae kwon do team, getting him settled into middle school, and now wrestling's started. That hasn't left me any time for crafting, and it feels good to get something done!

So it makes sense to start back with something simple. I needed a winter card in which to tuck a Dallas Cowboys ornament that AJ picked out for my parents while we were at the Southern Christmas Show. I'm not quite ready to do actual Christmas cards yet - even if I'm listening to the radio channel that's already switched over to Christmas music!

This also is for the challenges at:
Paper Sundaes - Choose your own Sundae Toppings
Speedy the Cat's Friends' Challenge - use circles
Crazy 4 Challenges - use circles (Great minds think alike!)
Stampin for the Weekend - winter

(Ugh! I forgot this part!)
Supplies: The stamp is from a CHF Scene It! set
               CB embossing folder, Bazzill CS, Distress Ink (Broken China and Faded Jeans)
               Glittery ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I appreciate your taking your time to visit. Goodness knows I don't have enough of it these days...

Have a wonderful weekend,
