Good Saturday morning! Well maybe.... I am wishing for SPRING! I have been thinking that the weather here has been feeling more like November than April these past few days here in Northwestern Ontario and low and behold, we woke up to fresh blanket of snow this morning - oh joy! And apparently there are 10 plus centimentres on the way! This after the hail storm we had last Sunday - I do have some photos to share later. I really cannot complain though, we Northerners do know how to deal with snow - there has been so much severe weather in so many places and snow sounds minor compared to what has been happening in other places! Anyhow, my quick kid's birthday card is based loosely on a sketch from Less is More challenge blog a couple of weeks ago, the size and orientation of the card is different, but the basic idea is the same. Pickle Pants had a birthday party last weekend and this worked perfectly for his buddy. I was thrilled to use ALL scraps for this card too! Really must work on that scrap pile, but who's keeping track - only thing is that it's getting so full I can hardly close the drawer! Well, best run I have a class to teach this morning and children to deliver here and there beforehand. Have a great Saturday! I hope it is spring where you are! Shanna :)


  1. So cute, love the alligator with those papers!

    My Mum was admiring the birthday card you sent me the other day (yes it's still on the mantlepiece! I can't bring myself to take it down yet!) and she loves it. She says she can see ehy I must love your blog!
    More snow? Oh poop. Still you guys must be equiped for dealing with it, I get bored of looking at all that white after 2 weeks!
    Have a good weekend!
