Winter Wonderland Crafting

Monday, March 2, 2015

Oh, Monday. How I haven't been dreaming of you coming. But yet, here you are. This weekend was a snowy one here in Albuquerque. This picture is from Friday morning... and it proceeded to snow all Friday night into Saturday morning. At the end of it all, I had about a foot at my apartment. It was the most snowfall in Albuquerque since 2006 and one of the top snowy days in the city since 1930!

I loved the snow. I miss snow. Terribly. But my capitol crud just continued to get worse over the weekend so I wasn't able to actually enjoy the snow. But it was so pretty to look at through the windows. In between my runny nose, coughing, and sneezing I did get around to making a few cards. I ended up napping so much that I didn't get much done. 

I call this my dreaming of spring card. Although I love the snow and cold weather, we really are on the road towards spring, so this card is inspired by the inevitably great weather than is just around the corner!

A simple, bright card for spring!

I also made a masculine-themed birthday card. The colors don't quite show up in the photographs, but the two colors are a dark gray and a light mint green. The dots are a complementary yellow.

The card didn't turn out exactly as I envisioned, but I am running low on the gray coverstock, so I had to limit some my original plan.

A bit of dimension, but still simple.

Hope your week is off to a nice start!
