A Wish for Cooler Weather

I am so ready for cooler weather! Moved Allie into her apartment in Birmingham yesterday and it was hot! This week's MFPSpeedyTV Inspiration Challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to make a Winter Card and at least pretend it was cooler! Here are Shirley's wonderful inspiration pictures:



I picked the middle blue floor and my Winter wishes for inspiration on my card:


I used the snowflake stamp from the MFP Calendar set and a sentiment from the brand new Brrrr set.

Hope you will join us!

  1. A stunning take on the inspiration photos. Love the distressed edges and kind of old world feel to your creation.

  5. I love your card, Nancy, and I hope it helped cool you down. I know you miss your sweet daughter already. It's so hard with they are away. Would you believe our weather has been very cool and rainy this year? We have been more in the mid to high 80's than 90's. We haven't even seen a 100 degrees. What is going on here in North AL? You would have loved it. I don't because it doesn't seem like summer to me. And, you know, I love hot weather. Crazy me!!!!!!!!!! :-)

  10. This is quite pretty with all the distressing and snowflakes. We can't relate with your hot weather up here in PA, because it's been like perfect autumn weather for most of August! It has to be so hard knowing your DD is off on her own at school now, but you can be very proud! She's headed in the right direction thanks to you :)
