Cordelia's Cards

Howdy, folks!  No matter what I say, I can't seem to get ahead with the card makin' so I've been doing my posts late.  It's a good thing I have to have my Nacho cards done a couple days ahead of time because this Tuesday I spent almost the whole day reading a book...and then went to bed too late because I was wired due to the cliffhanger ending :(  Can't wait for the next one!

But anyway!  Let's look at some cards, eh?  Um, a lot of stuff I used today is retired, because I have a giant stash so I might as well use it.

I said in last week's Friday Flashback that I wanted to make more cards with A Little Love so here's another one.  Up until last week, we could pretty much wear flip-flops around here, but today, it feels more like this:

I put on my heavy jacket to walk the dogs, probably could have used my gloves too, and it was AWESOME.  My mom keeps saying "boo on cold weather" but me, I'm loving it.  Might have something to do with the bit where I felt like Alabama was trying to kill me with heat and humidity for several months.

Anyway, I did two-for-the-price-of-one cards for the Color Throwdown:

Love those colors together.  And I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch:

And why, you may be wondering, did I call this post Cordelia's Cards?  Because, in an early episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cordelia Chase told someone else, "This may be hard to believe but I'm both a summer and a winter."  And for some reason I find that quote amusing.  Cheers, peeps!

It's for the colors -- summer and winter. She thought she looked good in both seasonal colors. Too funny. Wonder what happened to her.

Great colors, Chris. It's still very cold here. We got in the hot tub last night (froze coming and going), but at least the wind wasn't blowing. Smelled wood burning in someone's fireplace. Yep, it's WINTER here. Have a great day.
