Brrrrrrrr it's cold!

Good Morning!
Woke up to more snow and more cold -24C with windchill(-9F). I guess I shouldn't complain since winter really only arrived for us last week. Typically we see it late October around Halloween or early November. So this little extra time has been a nice suprise! Last night was Chloe's Christmas Concert at school. I hope I got a few good pics but will have to wait til I charge my battery
Yesterday afternoon I worked on some more thank you cards. I know this seems like a strange one to give in December or January after Christmas but I also have an upcoming birthday and it's nice to send thank you's for the gifts I receive.
This is a SU! only card. Can you tell I'm loving the die cut and curly punch??? ;)
Stamps: Tart & Tangy; Cardstock: Kraft, Real Red and Summer Picnic DP; Inks: Real Red, Choc Chip, Old Olive; Accessories: Curly Punch, Top Note Die, Silver Brads, Dimensionals
Remember this bookmark for a couple of weeks ago?
Stamps: A Touch of Class; Cardstock: Real Red, White, American Crafts DP; Inks: Adirondack Black; Accessories: Copics, Corner Rounder punch, Heidi Swapp Ghost Flower, Prima, Rhinestone Brad, Real Red Striped ribbon, Bookmark
Today it's Whachadoin' Wednesday at Storage Unit, Inks & More. This week Mary Jo challenged the girls to create a card to hold a gift. Well that bookmark I made a few weeks ago needed something right? Well I used the word window punch to make a hole wide enough for the bookmark to slid down into. The ghost snowflake stops it from going in too far.
I will give this to Chloe for Christmas with a few books that we picked up at Chapters. She loves to read which is a wonderful thing and I want to encourage her as much as we can.
Supplies for the card
Stamps: A Touch of Class; Cardstock: Real Red, White, American Crafts DP; Inks: Adirondack Black; Accessories: Copics, Word Window Punch, Circle Punches, Silver Brad, Nesties, Dimensionals

Adorable bookmark for Chloe, and I love the curly punch paired with the top note. Love the fruit theme's just friendly!! :)

Both creations are fabulous. Love the top note and curly label punch, and that was a great idea to incorporate the bookmark into the card. Love it.

It's looking like I'm going to have to buy that curly punch. Really like the holder for your bookmark too with the ghost shape stopper.
