  1. The snowflake embossing folder is beautiful and I love how you picked up the embossing in the cool blue...... Thanks so much for joining in our Forgotten Things Challenge at Our Creative Corner. Anne x

  2. Ha--funny sentiment! Perfect for back to school!
    (although, I'll admit, before I read the sentiment, I was a bit confused as to how it was a back to school card).
    Thanks so much for playing with us at LRW!!

  3. You may end up having those "snow days" before you really want them. I, for one, would be more than ready since it's so hot down here!
    LOVE this beautiful card though and your design for it is awesome! So very pretty.
    (Love those "college student quotes" too! LOL!)

  4. What a great job you did on our layout at CC&CC! I love the lovely combination of papers, so nice! Thank you for playing along with us! I hope you come back again soon! Joanne

  5. Lovely layered card and the snowflake layer is such fun!
