Could it Be Any Colder?

I can't believe that it's almost minus 40 degrees Celsius. It doesn't get much colder than that around here! I'm not venturing out of my house today. The boys and I are going to watch movies and lay low! BRRR!

I'm hoping to get some stamping done this afternoon, so I'll add to this post a little later when I get something done!

ETA: Okay, I got some stamping done this afternoon!!! YAY! I worked on a couple of Stamp Club projects, but I want to wait until I finish all of them so I can post them all in one post. Another thing I did was make a baby shower invitation for a friend of mine. She wants me to make some invitations for her, so this is a prototype!

She asked for it to be a pocket card. I made it fairly simple since I'll be making a whole bunch of them (if she decides she wants to go with this one). I based it on the Celebrate card on page 8 of the Spring/Summer Preview brochure, but I used the Bundled in Love set instead, with Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue and Barely Banana cardstock. I think I'll round the corners on the outside Bashful Blue piece, though. I hope she likes it.

oh my gosh, I thought you said it was cold at 40 degrees Celcius, then I read it again and there's a tiny little "minus" before the 40!

Yes, minus 40 degrees Celcius certainly is COOOOOOLD!!!!

You're very fortunate to have such a great hobby to keep your mind off the frostbite! lol

(just a random drop-in)

Good golly, Miss Molly.......that's cold! It's almost as bad here in Thunder Bay. Love this invitation and there's no reason your friend won't love it, too! Glad you're feeling better.

I was bouncing around the blogs and found you and this sweet item - I have been looking for some interesting card ideas - this would be great for invites where the return card was inside. Does this sort of creativity come from the super cold environment?

Thank you.
