Lucky Me - I'm a Guest Designer

Today is one of those unexpected days off from work. We got freezing drizzle last night and are expecting heavy snow tonight. My husband usually drops me off at school before heading to work himself. We like to leave early so that I have an hour or so before my 7:30 a.m. class. So this morning, we scraped the ice from the car and literally slid down the driveway - no control at all. I made the comment that they should close KSU, which they almost never do. Then my cell phone rang - it was the automatic alert system, saying that school was closed and classes were canceled! We were less than a block from home. I was so glad that we hadn't left earlier or I would have been stranded at work!
Anyhoo, this week I am the guest designer at SPCC for their Color Combo #85. I am so honored to be able to do this, because Sami's blog is great and she has some amazing talent over there. Be sure to check them out!
For this fun little card, I used TAC Hip Hop paper, which is so vibrant and fun. This is a trifold card, which is loads of fun to do. I accented the paper with Sami's Flourishee stamp set and did some fussy-cutting and pop-dotting.
I hope that all of you are safe and warm!

Hi, Susan! Thanks for stopping by! Yes, this weather is awfully unpredictable -- when everyone else was having severe snow storms and blizzards we, surprisingly, didn't even have snow on the ground. Now we're under a snow blizzrd watch. We're expected to get almost 20 inches of snow! I'm not at all surprised, knew we had to get it sooner or later. I was just hoping it would have been "much" later! LOL!

I love your card and I love the colors you used. Congratulations on your guest designer spot; I'll have to check it out!

Well, I'm glad you got to get a day off, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Hugs, my friend!

Susan this is so sweet. I love frogs.I just got done snow blowing 13 inches plus from my huge drive way. It took 1 1/2 hours and I have a huge snow blower.
You did a great job as guess designer.
Thanks for the sweet comment on my card.
Enjoy your day and stay safe.

What a fun card. These are not easy to decorate, and you did a beautiful job with this one. Congrats on your guest designer spot. That is wonderful for you! We have about 3 inches of solid ice here in Indiana. It is a mess and such a headache. Can't wait for Spring. Stay safe! Best, Curt
