SNS Layout #191

I decided to work with some photos from a gorgeous day last winter. I have a love hate relationship with winter. I really love it as it is so pretty and I feel like if it has to be cold it may as well be pretty. However winter seems to last forever and ever.   

On this day last December I woke up in a winter wonderland. I think it had warmed up a little and made a fog from the mix of warm air and the cold ground. Then the temperatures dropped overnight and the fog froze and this was the result. I wish you could have seen it in real life because these photos just do not do it justice. 

I used Sketch N Scrap Layout Sketch #191. We would love to see what you come up with so make sure you link up your page over at our blog.

SNS Card Sketch #159

Hello everyone! Are you ready for the end of the year to happen? 

We had an exciting thing happen. My husband and I bought our first home. We have been working on getting everything packed and ready to go for quite some time. We both have moved a lot in the past so this time I thought I would be strategic and keep out a couple of cards I needed to mail as well as a few items to be able to make some cards or scrapbook pages if I wanted to. 

I was so proud of myself and then I needed one of the said cards....wouldn't you know I couldn't find it anywhere! It is ok right? I have a few inks out and some of my favorite stamps most of which have cute matching dies. Did I also mention they need to be colored. Ok, welp I packed up my die machine as well as my markers, colored pencils and brushes (if I wanted to use an ink pool from a pad). 

Hahaha oh my. So I started digging around my stash and found this cute little Snoopy that I was given this summer at the Expo (they had a snoopy theme night) and wouldn't you know Snoopy is holding a gift. Awww Snoopy to the rescue! 

So I made this cute card and I was ready to assemble. Adhesive check, pop dots....hmmm nope. Ok I dig around and then I dig around some more and finally I just dig for something anything I can pop this up with. Since I apparently packed my pop dots I moved on to my glue dots while i try to figure something out. I am sure you have guessed by now I can't find them either and I am pretty sure they are packed at the bottom of a stack of heavy boxes. So I found some chipboard and picked out a couple that I have had forever and still have not used and popped up Snoopy. made my regular adhesive work where I needed the glue dots and wala birthday card ready to go.

Yay I was able to make a card. I used card sketch #159. I was able to use this cute die circle Planner Pocket - 2 Die  from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

My MIL loved the card and when I find the one I was planning on sending her. I will set it aside for next year.

Here is the adorable card sketch #159 we would love to see what you come up with. Be sure to link up with us over at the blog.
