Miss you card made using Reminisce Accents cartgridge.

Hello, friends!


It seems like it is going to be another snow day for me. Can you say stir crazy?  The coziness and relaxation aspect of it has worn off. I seriously need to leave this house! Please oh please let this ice melt soon! I hope you are all not feeling as caged as I feel with the snow storms that you are enduring!

Today I have a card that I made using Reminisce Accents cartridge. It is such a super simple card to make. So easy, in fact, that I made it while gabbing on the phone with Joy!
The paper and ribbon are from Close To My Heart.
The stamp is from Papertrey Ink.
I cut this out at 1 1/2".
Thank you so much for stopping by today. You guys are what makes all the work that goes into this blog worth it!


Have a terrific Thursday!

What a beautiful card...this is exactly what I would send to you and Joy for when you don't have a post. We have lotsa snow too. Our weather this winter has been extremely frigid..but I've had weeks where I literally spend 3 or 4 days from 8 a.m. til 4 p.m. in my scrapbooking room and craft away I love it...I get my cup "o" joe and we have a great time...

I feel your pain, that is why we moved to Tuscon AZ - If I could bottle some sunny weather I would send it right up to you!!!

Beautiful card! Beautiful Paper!

The cut-out and the paper match so beautifully!!!

I always love your pretty cards. You obviously have talent for making them, and I hope you get some warmth your way (the "Brownhog"-as my 5yr old says) didn't see his shadow! So there's a 36% probability Spring will arrive early?

Scrappy Chic said...

The paper looks wonderful with the cuts...everything goes together perfectly.

I'm starting my Go AWay-ice dance right NOW. Crazy weather! This card is perfect for sending to those we don't see often, and as Joan Smith said for when you guys don't post, as we truly miss your inspiration! I have this cart and will get it out today! Thanks, as always!

Wow Melanie, this cut was just made for this paper. Don't know how you find the perfect images to cut all the time. I have so many carts that I forget what is on them.

What a beautiful card. I love the softness of that printed paper. I am really enjoying getting to know CTMH papers. They are such a high quality. I want almost every pack from the new catalog! Try to enjoy your snow days scrapping and think warm, sunny thoughts!

That card is just beautiful, especially the paper! I am in Kansas and we had about 12" of snow. It drifted up on my front porch and covered the front door! I had 5 boys for an overnight last night! But.... my baby is 17, so I am well past the age of your son! I enjoy it!
Thanks for sharing

Cathy said...

Kelly Massman said...

Gorgeous!
We have about 18" here but seems like more with the wind drifts!

WOW Melanie! This is BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE that paper and the cut and the ribbon... Heck it's BEAUTIFUL.... Oh wait I said that already! :o) Sometimes the paper just does wonders for a quick card... Love it! I didn't get any snow... but we did get a nice touch of freezing weather... We got around -20 degrees Tuesday night.... Wednesday afternoon a pipe broke... not good.... Then last night was -10 degrees sooo warming up a little! LOL we should be in the 40's by Saturday... My city wasn't even in the path of the storm and yet it still affected us to some degree... Stay warm Melanie... it will get better! :o)

Elaine said...

What a beautiful card! Living in CA I don't get any "snow days", but sometimes I think I would like to be snowed in, just to give me the excuse of why I need to be crafting all day!! Sorry you are stir crazy... I hope you get out soon!! :)

I love your card, Its really beautiful. I feel your pain about the boredom, I live in the dfw area also and Its pretty bad when you want to go to work! Thanks for the ideas!

JANLYNN said...

Lovely papers. I am a bird lover so anything with birds on it I am drawn to them. Stay warm and craft happy. We are supposed to get some wintery mix later tonight and tomorrow. The trucks have started to spray the brine mix on the roads. Hope it doen't get bad though. I took a vacation day off work tomorrow.

Peg Toth said...

That is just beautiful! the colors, and everything. Thanks for the idea.

Shari said...

Still icy here in Mesquite. Fortunately, I have had to go to work and it isn't too bad after I get out of the neighborhood. Most drivers are being sensible. Snow tomorrow 1-3 inches.

Beautiful card, I need to quit working so much and crafting a little more.
