Happy Labor day weekend! I love LOOOONNNG weekends, and this weekend is no exception. Having that extra day off from work allows me to do most of the things that ‘need’ to be done, and still have time to PLAY! I hope you have some time to play this weekend as well.
My grandsons came to visit on Saturday, so it was an extra special weekend. While they were busy playing with some new birthday Lego sets, I pulled out a “few” card-making supplies (the pile of supplies kept growing larger – LOL!)
I had just purchased the ‘Happy Holidays’ issue of CardMaker magazine too, so I was inspired to start creating some Christmas designs. I really love the colors from the Stampin’ Up! Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo, Pool Party, Smoky Slate & Whisper White), which is sadly retired now.
With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays last year, I didn’t have nearly enough time to use it!
So what better day to bring it out than PLAY DAY? Here are a couple of cards I created with the Winter Frost color scheme and some pieces from my scrap bin:
Today I decided to continue to play with these colors and incorporate them into a card for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge by Nicole Watt. Here is her sketch:
