Cozy, cozy home!
This week's challenge at Cardalicious is to create a shaped card - anything other than a square or rectangle. I've been experimenting a bit with shaped cards over the past few months. I know a circle isn't necessarily the most creative of shapes BUT I turned my card into a Christmas ornament. I punched a large circle from patterned paper and then punched a circle from the center of that. I cut a small rectangle shaped piece of patterned paper, rounded the corners and adhered that to the large circle. I LOVE these new Christmas-y patterned papers from Upsy Daisy Designs. This line is called Spirit and it's brand NEW!
It's barely 40 degrees here this morning. Yesterday was unbelievably windy and cold. I was so happy to just stay in my cozy house last night. After I watched a couple shows, I sipped on a glass of wine and read a book. I would have started a fire in the fireplace but it seems a bit early to be doing that - wouldn't you know it's supposed to warm up to 70 degrees by Thursday?! I ended up staying put this weekend. We went to go see The Duchess Saturday night. I love Kiera Knightley and I love historical films and this one certainly did not disappoint. I have a busy day ahead...need to hit the gym, run some errands, do the housewife thing...it's all good!
Have a fabulous Monday! :)
