Baby It's Cold Outside!

Good Morning!
It's our Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday so I'm really looking forward to a few days off. Chloe has a PD day on Tuesday so it's a 4 day weekend and only a three day work week...Yeah! Exciting eh?!
The only bummer is that my SU! order did not come Friday which means it won't come until Tuesday :( In the meantime, I do have some Non-SU! stuff to share.
This first card is for our weekly Our Creative Corner Challenge. Lynda has challenged us to make a card that is NOT a rectangle or square. I'm not as creative as some of the others so I went with a large circle nestabilites.
I've pulled out my fave My Mind's Eye designer papers for my cards. I just LOVE this stuff...it's so cute!
Hop on over to the OCC blog to see the what fabulous things the other girls have created. Then stop by their blogs for all the specifics. Then if you upload to SCS please put OCCC in the keywords so we can check out your awesome cards!
Stamps: Penny Black; Cardstock: Baja Breeze, WW and My Mind's Eye DP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Circle nesties, Making memories ribbon, misc snowflakes, Stardust stickles, Paper piercer, Dimensionals
Yesterday I ended up not working the casino fundraiser so I had some free time to stamp! Although I only made these two cards, it felt great! LOL!
Cindy posted a wonderful sketch on the MFT forum and since I had my papers out I thought I'd stick with 'em ;)
