Let It Snow

Here's a card using Lauren's Sketch. I used the Home Sweet Home set from Taylored Expressions. I woke up today and just wasn't motivated to stamp anything. . .and that's rare! I was browsing some of my favorite blogs when I found Lauren's sketch and it inspired me to stamp. So, thank you, Lauren!

I don't know if it's the weather or the fact that my husband has been away from home a lot lately with work, but the days just seem to drag on and on. . .but I still don't seem to get much done! LOL I've been meaning to get the kids together and take a nice photo to send out in our Christmas cards, but in between the playing and naps, the timing just hasn't worked out yet! :) That IS my goal for today, though. The other thing I'd like to do is go to the concert my husband is conducting tonight, but sometimes it's more stressful going with the kids than just staying home. My two year old just doesn't like to sit still, so I'd spend most of the concert keeping her quiet or taking her to another room so as not to disturb the audience. I almost think it's worth the chance to get out though! LOL I hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Home Sweet Home (Taylored Expressions); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Paper- Christmas Key Ingredients (Taylored Expressions); Accessories- Martha Stewart scallop border punch, Copic markers, Super Jumbo circle punch, Mega Scallop circle punch (Marvy Uchida); ribbon from Christmas Key Ingredients (Taylored Expressions); Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
