Snow Day Crafting

When I went to bed last night there was not a speck of snow anywhere!  However, the weather forcast did not sound good.  I woke up at 2 and looked outside.  The phone rang at 5:30 am and I knew what was coming.  School is cancelled.  When I got out of bed this morning, this is what it looked like outside.  Thank goodness we did not get as much as they predicted.  We could have gotten up to 8" of the white stuff.

I am really into using book pages on my cards.  I don't know what it is about them, but I really like the way it looks.  I am also really getting into twine and the two go together like green eggs and ham.  Last week, was Dr. Seuss' birthday if you didn't already know.

Here is my close-up of my flower cluster.  My friend Beth, turned me onto paper flowers and I LOVE using them!!!

At church, we have what is called Secret Sister.  Each month, we are to but a $5 gift for them. I found this spring drinking glass and pack of Easter tissues.  I used the same flowers and materials for this tag, but different patterned papers. 

Here is another close-up.  I hope she likes it.

I am going to enter the card into the following challenges...

  1. They are both so CUTE and spring-time fresh! Funny that you should mention the flowers. I was looking at a paper flower this morning. I only have one left from a card kit and it was looking lonely sitting all by itself on the card that I'm working on. Where do you get those flowers?
