Snow days and recycled cardmaking

So it has been snowing MAJOR over here. We got slammed over this past weekend and today we got slammed AGAIN! Our internet has been in and out all day, as the wind blows and the snow gets higher and higher. Needless to say, its been one hell of a snowday. I'm not looking forward to digging my way to my car tomorrow to attempt to get into work. *sigh*
Anyways, I finally got to the craft store yesterday to get adhesive (which is why there's been no cards posted this past week...I ran out of adhesive and haven't had a chance to get over to get adhesive till yesterday). I was a busy bee today though. I finished up all my cards for my Friday Night Card Club's Feb. cards, I made two valentine's day cards based off of a theme by KWerner, and finished up 2 scrapbook pages I was working on when my adhesive ran out (1 single page and 1 double page layout). I also found out I won a chipboard blog candy (yay! I LOVE chipboard letters!!!!) and have been busy doing things around the house, etc. It's been a crazy week with all the snow and such.
So below is my card club cards. This month's theme was "Recycle!" So I decided to recycle ribbon bits and bottle caps as my recycled items to use for my card. I have this huge bin of ribbon scraps so I sorted them all out by color and just so happened to have enough colors for one card per color (which would in turn be one card for each person in the card club). Rainbow recycling!

I then adhered the ribbon scraps to a piece of cardstock and then did something to similar to a card KWerner made for her Two Peas "A Year in Cards" card this past month. I also got the Papertrey Ink's baby button bits set from my mom recently and realized that the bottle caps were the perfect size for the large button circles in the flower stamp in that set. So hence why I put painted bottle caps with buttons inside them as the larger flowers on the card. I think they turned out cute for me not knowing really what I was doing. haha

(Here is the "blue" version of the card)

(the whole rainbow of cards)

(This view shows the bottle caps a little better)

Anyways, in the next few days I'll post my V-day cards and my Scrapbook pages for ya'll. Stay tuned. Also, I am ALMOST ready for my Feb. release for Frenzified. The "Birthday Bakes" set is turning out too cute! I'm excited to show it to you all and I'll keep you posted when it goes live for purchase.
I'll leave you with some snow pictures from the first snow we got on Saturday. Today's storm was too windy and cold to even go outside. We did have grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup for lunch though!

(our car...under snow! Hubby is not amused...)

(our street looked like a ghost one was on the roads)

(The nice snow piles in between our cars and our neighbors cars)

(Our humble aboud...well we live in part of it at least)

(So our door says "Let it Snow." I guess mother nature listened..haha)

(Too bad this wasn't packing snow...otherwise it would of been a snowball. I think the snow we got today is though. By the looks of it anyways)

(The hubby playing on the rope swing)

(me too. What the heck, why not)

So those of you who got snow, have you dug your way out yet? hehe. Anyways, for all those have to drive tomorrow, drive safe!
Hugs all!
