Snow day = Stamp day!!

Hello, Friends! Here are a few pictures from the snowy Midwest!! The snow in my garage came in UNDER a small gap in the door when it was closed. The back slider can't be opened for my dog, Abby, but then she couldn't navigate the backyard either! Even though she's a black Lab, the drifts in the back are 4 feet high straight across the yard. The great news in all this is that I had some extra time to stamp and participate in challenges:) Also, I actually LOVE a good storm and this one was a doozy!

My first card is for the Get Sketchy Challenge this week. I struggled with the design. I originally thought I'd create a pocket with a pull-out tag, but that wasn't happening today. Instead, I just made a focal image and relied on the cute DP to carry the card:)

My next card is for the CPS Challenge this week. Again, my mojo hit a rough spot, but I think the end result is fine! Anyway, I had lots of fun creating. More tomorrow!! It's another snow day for my school because of the bad roads and predicted LOW windchills.

Stay warm and be safe!!
