The snow came, the snow dumped, the snow changed to sleet, the ice formed, the schools closed, the roads closed and I’m still hoping to be able to drive to Nashville on Wednesday.  Please let there be warm temps and sunshine today!!  I think I’m going to cry if it doesn’t get better for tomorrow.  I took pictures and planned to share them but today I decided I wanted to challenge myself to scrap them using My Digital Studio instead of sharing raw pictures.  I finished one page Monday night and will share it tomorrow and work on some more to share while I’m away (positive thinking).

Also for those asking about the Rules of Chocolate from yesterday’s post – the pdf has been added to yesterdays post.

We are on #18 of the Utah Diva’s Color Challenge.   Click on this link to go to the  Utah Diva’s Color Challenge blog.   This is the inspiration that Gretchen gave us this week –

With all the snow we are getting these pretty spring flowers sure are a nice site (although the snow is pretty too).  These could also be winter colors but I liked the flowers and decided to stick with that thought.  I still have one of my magazines out on the table and grabbed another sketch from it for this card.  It is a quick and easy card using Always Artichoke, Perfect Plum, Concord Crush, and Very Vanilla.

The flower images are from the new Button, Button stamp set – one stamped in each of the colors in the color challenge.  I poked holes through the center and tied Linen Thread through them.  The ‘hello’ is from the Hello Again stamp set it is stamped in Concord Crush.  I also used a Concord Crush Stampin’ Write marker to go around the edge of the Perfect Plum card base.  The bottom left corner was punched with the Corner Rounder punch.

I hope you like this weeks card.  I have been playing a lot with this stamp set and using it for several of my swaps for the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference next week – oh my it really is just over a week away.  Now it is your turn to play with these colors – then go to the UDI blog and add your creation to the linky section.
