hello...

We are snowed in today.  Well by the time you read this today will be yesterday.  It was 7 degrees...but the weather channel said "Feels like -7".  I know it's way colder in other parts of the country...but hey.  I am a wimp.  I didn't step foot outside all day.  I did, however, have some time to play with the March Simon Says kit again.   You can tell I am wishing for sunshine...

I just LOVE this sunshine stamp.  So cute!  I stamped the sun in Simon Says Sunrise ink onto the Sunrise card stock.  I used the tiny little "hello" sentiment in the middle and then covered the stamped part, in Star Dust Stickles.  Can you see the sparkle?

I matted the sun in some vellum and then added in a scrap of that gorgeous Lawn Fawn striped paper.  All I had left was a 1 1/4" x 4 3/4" piece so I built the whole card around that one scrap.  Because I love the stripes so much.  I was going to make this a little white card base card, but then found this new color from Simon Says called Audrey Blue...I knew I needed to add it in.  LOVE that new paper!  So I rounded the corners of the white focal point and popped it up on foam tape layering it on to the Audrey Blue Cardstock.

Let's talk card stock for a minute...this new stuff from SSS is amazing.  It is 100# paper.  I am a paper nerd, as I am sure many of you are, so you know what I am talking about here.  It is really gorgeous!  They have 5 new colors that just came out so you need to go check them out.  Click HERE for the newest colors!  :)  I promise I am not trying to enable.  Really.  ;)

Here is a picture of the whole March Kit..

Alright. By this time tomorrow, when this post goes live, I will be braving the cold to head to the gym.  Wish me luck.  The ice under the 5" of snow makes it even more enjoyable to go out!  :)  

Please stay warm and have a great day!
