Unity {inspiration} and pinspiration

A quick post tonight that will also be shared on Friday this week for FWF. Going back to school in the morning after a two day cold spell. It was too cold here in southern Wisconsin for us to have kids in school. Colder that I remember it being in a long, long time. What is cold? you ask....hmmm..... - 20 degrees real temp on Monday with -50 windchill and today was -13 with -30 windchill. That Is Cold. So with the time I had at home....I was able to crank out a couple of cards. Had been so busy over Christmas Break with celebrations and family, that I didn't have time to do much crafting. I thought about it quite a few times....but didn't get anything done. Christmas cards didn't get sent out this year, so I am sending out New Years cards instead. I looked through many examples and chose two I really liked from Pinterest. They are very similar and I based my card off of theirs. Here are the two that I found: Card 1 by Ardyth and Card 2 by Cindy

Here is my card:





This card is being uploaded to Unity's {be inspired} challenge for colors.

Have a great week/weekend and STAY WARM!

  5. This is such a fun idea! I see it and think, "Why didn't I think of that?" But, of course, I didn't! Hey, we had -30 both Monday and Tuesday morning here in NW WI, but Monday felt much, much colder with that wind. Brrrr! So glad it is behind us!
