Warm Wishes and Wintry Lovebirds

Hi, everyone!

Brrrr! OMG is it cold here. A great day to stay inside, make cards, and watch college football. The bad news is that I made the mistake of volunteering for traffic control duty for tomorrow's Thanksgiving basket pickup at our local food pantry. Seriously, what was I thinking?!

Now for two wintry cards that are intended to send the warmest of wishes to their OWH recipients.
  • Love on the Frozen Tundra: The first card was inspired by OWH's Mid-Month challenge to make a love card.
  • Warm Socks, Warmer Wishes: The second card is inspired by the current Shopping Our Stash challenge to make a non-Christmas card/project using a Christmas stamp. Love the inspiration for the SOS challenge. I'm all for celebrating Thanksgiving before we start singing those Christmas carols.  A big thanks to the SOS team for this creative way of challenging us to stretch those Christmas stamps.  :)

A quick reminder that it's not too late to play along with our November Words 2 Scrap By challenge. Annie chose an Emerson quote as the inspiration for our Kindness & Thanks words.
