 Brrr! Another cold day in Ohio!   We have quite a bit of snow too - and no school!  Those of you that know me, know that this is my kind of weather!  (well the snow - maybe not this cold!)  My dear friend Janice Weightman shared that today is national "cuddle" day!  Seems fitting for such a cold day! 

Here's a card for today that will warm your heart! 

This card features tons lots of products from the new Occasions catalog - the You Plus Me stamp set and the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack.   Love these - and they are bundled together to save 15% !  Yay! 

This paper stack Gorgeous!

And check out the Happy Heart embossing folder - love this - I don't know about you, but it seems I can never get enough of our embossing folders........ 

Here's a close up - 

Card Details: 
* Card Base is 4 1/4 x 11 Whisper White Card Stock, scored at 
 5 1/2. 

* The next layer is 3 3/4  x 4 1/4 - embossed with the Happy Heart embossing folder

* The Designer paper banner is cut with my Big Shot and the Banner Framelits - the Twitterpated banner was cut free hand - 

* I used the 2 inch circle punch for the black circle - and layered this on the You + Me stamp- which was stamped in Real Red Ink and punched with the 1 3/4 inch circle punch. 

*  I added some "twirled" white bakers twine to the left of the banner - and a snip of a tea lace doily.  I love these doilies and especially love using them on Valentines. 

* Also added some Real Red Cotton Ribbon- this was a ribbon idea I learned from Donna Griffith of Stampin' Up! - she sent me a card with ribbon like this and I loved the idea!  She is super creative!  
To do this - I cut two pieces of ribbon - the first piece was just attached flat onto the top of the banner - and then I took the second piece of ribbon, knotted it and attached it with a glue dot.  Easy and simple - but I like the idea!

  1. Yes it is cold here in southeaster Ohio, too! No school here either so slept in until 7:30 and when I got up it was -4 degrees! Over an hour later it was finally up to -2.2 degrees. I am ready for spring!
