Snow Day!

Our weekend snowstorm has left us with icy roads this Monday morning which means there's no school for Christopher today. I think a snowman is on the agenda! And some crafting! I don't ever get tired of playing with paper! Sometimes I may not feel inspired to start a particular project, but then all I have to do is hop around my favorite blogs and browse the gallery at Two Peas in a Bucket and that gets me going!

You know what else gets me in a crafty mood? A good card sketch like those at 2 Sketches 4 You! And wouldn't you know it, today there's a new sketch from Kazan! And another chance to win a great prize package from our sponsor KLM Digital Designs.  Here's Kazan's fabulous sketch! It was so fun to make a round card this time!

This is my interpretation of the sketch. I colored in my image with Copic markers. I just got them a few weeks ago and I'm still learning, but I'm pretty happy with my coloring on this one.  To make the card base I used a die cut from Silhouette. The pink ribbon-like tag was also made with the Silhouette.

This card is going to be donated to a very special cause I discovered while blog hopping. Over at Jennifer McGuire, Ink I found out about 'Cards for Kids' a call to send cards to some very sick children. I hope you can hop over and read some stories about these brave kids and send a few cards their way.

One last project I'd like to share before I go throw a few snowballs is this scrapbook page of my son watching a steam train.

Each summer we take a drive to New Hope Valley Railway to hop aboard a real steam train. For my train enthusiast, this is the one of the highlights of summer! If you are ever in the Raleigh, North Carolina area, I recommend a visit. They have a small train museum and a model train display as well. Oh, and the fresh squeezed lemonade is out of this world!

Cute card and scrapbook page. I just got a Cricut, didn't even investigate the Silhouette. Now I'm wondering... No! I absolutely cannot get another expensive tool -- no matter how many cool things I've seen done with it! I am enjoying the Cricut, but love what I'm seeing from your Silhouette, too. Are you in the Raleigh area? I'm in Charlotte, but we got mostly ice -- not much snow. Only one day off of school. Enjoyed browsing your blog!
