Winter, Winter, PLEASE GO AWAY!!

~ This Kansas winter has been worse than I ever remember, and I'm soooo ready for it to pass (she says as it's snowing and sleeting the first of 6" expected before the end of tomorrow)!!! I've stayed extremely busy this cold season, as you may have guessed by my absence! I have, however, attended a few crops and spent some time in my scrap room being productive. The projects below are winter-inspired, and this snowy evening seems like the perfect time to share them!
These winter-themed Post-It Notes Cover were super simple to cut and create from a file designed by Shirley Clark. I used my KNK to cut the outer wrap and band, then just embellished with ink, 3-D snowflakes, and some bling-y Stickles, of course!!!

This recipe page was inspired by my new Cuttlebug folder & this shimmery white & bronze cardstock from The little hats were cut from patterned paper and embellished with Stickles. A small snowflake stamp filled in the open areas, and these were done!! I love simple & cute!

That's my winter inspiration for ya!!

I'm sorry you've had a tough winter. Hopefully things are warming up there in Kansas. Can you believe we even received 8 and a half inches of snow here in the south. I was excited for about 30 minutes and then I was over it. It's been an unusual winter for sure.
Your cards are lovely and your recipe page is an awesome CAS love it.... Love being in the Iron Chef too. Thanks for being such an awesome hostess.
Oh and by the way ... Love the look of your blog. You changed it and I love it!
