Special Delivery

Happy Sunday! This is my off week for the CAS challenge at The Outlawz but they have a really fun challenge this week that I hope you will play along. This week they are making a background for the card. You really need to check out the awesome creations my DT sistahs made. They are simply amazing.
I've been kind of absent this week from my blog. It was a busy week and my mojo seemed to wane for the cards so I changed crafts and started a granny square afghan instead. But today I am back with a card and I hope to do another one yet today as I am behind in some of the challenges that I like to play in. The first one today is the From the Heart I {heart} sketches with a twist challenge. The twist this week is vintage and that isn't my style usually so I didn't do the twist this week. But I did do the sketch.

This is one of Faith's newest stamp sets Special Delivery Snowman and it's available right now for just $1. I think he's just adorable! I could have used this card for The Outlawz challenge if I hadn't added so many layers. I made the background with a snowflake stencil. I started with Island Blue card stock from Simon Says and used the Simon Says snowflake stencil and Salty Ocean distress ink to create the background. The image and sentiment are die cut with MFT inside and Out stitched rounded square stax. The other two layers were scraps from my scrap box die cut with Spellbinders Square dies. Here's the sketch I used for inspiration.

I am entering these challenges:
I hope to get another card done today. Although tomorrow is my off day I will unloading semis of Girl Scout cookies tomorrow. The trucks should arrive by 9 o'clock and the leaders will start arriving by 10. We'll have to check and load lots of cars, trucks and vans with cookies. So soon, if you ordered cookies, you should be getting them. I think the trucking companies spend this entire week delivering cookies to different areas. It's supposed to be above freezing temperature-wise but we have a chance of rain. I'm praying it will hold off until later in the day. It's pretty miserable loading in the rain or snow. 
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you'll make a return trip later if I get my other card done. Have a super Sunday!
