Here Comes the Sun and an Uggs Day

What?! A shadow...dappled leaves...a blue sky. Here comes the sun!. Kitties can find a sunny place to nap.

Yesterday was the coldest in a succession of gray, dreary days. I just couldn't get warm. So
I pulled out the Uggs (my winter flip-flops). Uggs and a cup of coffee and before long I was toasty.

I know, another post with this little witch from Halloween (Crafty Secrets), but I just love her, and I had to use this velvet ric rac I found at Michael's. This one is for my sister. I had to include the black cat, since I have a black cat, Gus, and we had a black cat, Inky, when we were growing up. I have a paper that my mother kept when I was in the first grade. (I won't go into how long ago that was.) Anyway, one of the sentences I printed on that special lined paper was "Inky is as black as a Halloweew cat." No, that is not a typo; that's how I spelled it when I was six. My sister and I still laugh about it. Now when Gus wakes, stands, stretches, arching his back, he looks just like a Halloweew :) cat, only with a much sweeter face.

Now a switch to Christmas and a softer card.

I stamped the santa from Vintage Christmas (Crafty Secrets) in Vintage Sepia ink on Rustic Cream cardstock(PTI). The music stamp is also from Vintage Christmas. I stamped it on a tag punch which is distressed with Antique Linen (Ranger). The snowflakes from Winter Swirls(PTI) were first stamped in Antique Linen and then stamped again in Versamark Dazzle Frost to add a little shimmer. The felt tree was cut with Spellbinders Shapebilities. The patterned paper is K and Co. Finishing touches--a few pearls, buttons,and twine.

Inside I used the sentiment from Holiday Wishes (PTI), the holly from Vintage Christmas, and Vintage Labels (PTI).

Enjoy the day!

  1. Beautiful cards, Cammie! Love your 1st grade typos--so glad we didn't spell perfectly back then--makes saving these wonderful keepsakes worthwhile, doesn't it? Have a wonderful day!
