An Afternoon Classic

Brrrrr.   Is it cold outside or what?  I live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and we are having 18 degree (Fahrenheit) temperatures.  Now that is COLD.  The weatherman assures us it is temporary.  It should be back up to 70 degrees in a couple of days.  Now that is what I call winter.  A nice  cool 70 degree day is what I love about living in the south.

So what's a gal to do on a cold winter day?  Curl up with a good book, a bowl of chips , and a snuggle with your legged buddy sounds like fun.  Throw in a nap and wallah,  perfection!   That must be why this precious  image chose me this week.  Would you like to make "An Afternoon Classic" your very own?  Just click here and you will be directed to the Sassy Cheryl's store where you can purchase it and many other adorable digital stamps.   If I could throw a warm quilt over Sally's legs and feet this scene would be perfect.

The papers are from Authentique.  The pearls and flowers are from my stash.  I used a Valentine Flourish Die from Impression Obsession to embellish my card.  I cut pieces of the flourishes to frame the card and the heart was used inside on the sentiment.  Sorry no picture of the inside so just use your imagination.  It was spectacular.  LOL  The lacy rectangle die is from Spellbinders, the heart in the picture is from a very old punch, the picture frame was made by cutting a window pane from a window die I have.

Now it is your turn.  Pop on over to Sassy Cheryl's store and grab yourself a perfect little digi or two or three and create your own masterpiece.  Need some inspiration?  Pop over to the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog and see what my oh-so-talented design teammates created this week.   Remember it is "Anything Goes" week so you are only limited by your own imagination.

Happy Crafting and Stay Warm,
