Need Some Sunshine?

It has been wicked cold and windy here today. I am thankful that there wasn't any snow here and I am feeling badly for those in the Northeast who've had to deal with feet of snow these past few days. I don't think my kids could take any more snow this season.

All this wind has curtailed my errand-running today. My youngest daughter just did not want to be outside more than necessary, so I blew off the library, Target and the gym today. While she played and I waited for laundry to wash and dry, I found a few minutes to stamp. A few minutes was all I needed, too for this card. I think Julie calls it a "5 Minute Quckie." I love cards that take little time to make yet satisfy the need to be creative, don't you?



Last week I noticed some people that I know had participated in a Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab World blog. Que es esto? I wondered. I looked and thought it would be another good way to challenge myself to create a card for fun. I just ran out of time. So, I am caving to peer pressure and participating this week. The trigger plus the weather equals this card. Who doesn't love an easy, one-layer, 5 minute quickie? (As I reread that sentence, it is a bit risque, isn't it? Oh, well.)

card info: sun, sentiment and pearls by A Muse Artstamps, kraft cardstock, yellow gingham ribbon by May Arts, colored pencils.
