A Rainy Saturday Creation and A Flashback

It's raining hard outside so it is a great time to craft and catch up on a few Hallmark movies.

My friend Pauline posted THIS fun card which led me to the Winter Wonderland Challenge. The challenge is all about doing holiday cards and this week the theme is fashion. I thought I would use this fun new image by Cheryl Grant Alger/Sassy Cheryl which will be available at Squigglefly on January 4th; it is called Bum Snowman in love. I am only showing a part of the image on this card as I wanted to focus on his sweet face and his hat, scarf, and mittens since the challenge is about fashion.

The papers are from The Paper Studio splashed with a bit of white craft paint, the dies are Spellbinders and Tim Holtz, and the flowers are from Thepiecebypiece shop on Etsy.

Over at the Sassy Cheryl Blog, everyone is posting their favorite Sassy Cheryl Creation from 2013. Here is mine:

This card was made with the Play Hard or Go Home image available at Squigglefly and the Sassy Cheryl Shop.

If it doesn't stop raining soon, I will need to get the John Boat out of the pond to get to work on Monday!



  1. Gorgeous cards Nancy, I love your adorable snowman image and lovely die cut details. I can see why the second card is your favourite Sassy Cheryl Creation, such a fabulous image and brilliant detailing.

  9. Awww-these cards are so cute. That snowman's face is just precious. He melts my heart. Love your baseball card too. I can't help think of my boys playing baseball while they were growing up. You did an awesome job with the visual on that one. The baseball background is dynamite. It rained here all Saturday and Sunday. It's beautiful today because we are at work. It's supposed to rain tomorrow and Wednesday too. Could it be because I am off tomorrow afternoon and Wednesday....I think
