Thinking of You

Good evening!

How is it going in your neck of the woods? I can hardly believe I'm saying this, but yesterday morning we woke up to SNOW! Not only was it snowing, but laying, too. It was totally crazy but I secretly loved it! With all that has been going on around here, it feels like autumn went by in a blur and it almost was time for Christmas. I know, jumping the gun, but it will be here before you know it.

It feels like it has been so long, but I spent some quality time in my studio this weekend and put together a card for this week's Play Date Cafe color challenge. Here is the color story for this week. I'll take a cup of whatever that warm beverage is, please!

Here's what I came up with for this color challenge.

I combined images from Very Vintage Greetings, Woodgrain Silhouettes and Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions from Wplus9.

I have been so inspired recently by Jinny Newlin's creations, particularly this card and this layout. I just love her scrappy collage style and tried to emulate that with this card. What fun to pile the stuff on!

I'm so glad to see you stop by this evening, thank you!
