See What Happens!

Hello blogging friends!

As my title suggests, See What Happens with it's Cold & Snowy Outside!?!
I bombard you with card making creations!  

Today I've made a card for the Outlawz Monday 'Greetings Challenge' - My Sentiments Exactly ... the theme is to use one of your FAVORITE sentiments!  That is exactly what I've done here along with a cute little 'pocket' design.

The design paper I chose to use today is from the Graphic45 'Secret Garden' collection.
I was going through some old Christmas cards and found this card front 

 which I tore apart to use as a template but then cut it wrong ... dang!  So my card front ended up a little different ... but you will be seeing one 'like this' coming to my blog soon!  LOL!

Since this particular challenge is about my 'favorite' sentiment, I immediately reached for this sentiment stamp by Stamping Sensations!  I've used it over & over on various projects and have heard a lot of positive feedback at my craft shows when someone picks up a card, altered tablet or whatever else I have used it on.

I have kept the inside of this card blank so I can write a note to my 'friend' when the weather breaks.  OR, maybe I should write it now and give her some hope for nice weather ahead (MONTHS from now, Uuugh!) 

A few additional challenges:
Cards and More #97 - Anything Goes (C5)
Craft-Dee BowZ January - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow
Craft Your Passion - Fancy Borders/Edges
Scrapping Everyday Miracles - Friends Forever

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you've enjoyed this little creation.
