Cold Hands, Warm Heart

Happy Monday, friends.  Julie here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  The cold just keeps on coming here in NW Wisconsin.  It's -20 here this morning, warming all the way up to -15.  And the wind makes it feel like -40.  It's a perfect day to stay indoors and drink hot tea, coffee, or whatever the hot beverage of your choice is.
You might even want to try this cute pocket card to warm you up...


The theme this month on the Timeless Twine blog is "new".  This is a new card style for me, having never tried one of these pocket cards before. I used a pattern from My Scrap Chick, cutting out all the different pieces on my Silhouette.  Here's the pocket, pulled out.


I used Krazy for Kraft Timeless Twine on the handle (don't want to get burned, LOL) and added a cute bow with it, too.  

One of my try outs projects for Timeless Twine seems to fit today's theme very well, so I'm including it in this post:


It's good advice for a day of record-breaking cold, don't you think?
Timeless Twine colors used:
 Krazy for Kraft

Stamp, papers, and bling are from Close To My Heart.
I have some pictures on my blog today of a recent trip to some ice caves on Lake Superior, along with a few more details of these cards.  I'd love it if you hopped on over to my blog and took a look.  
I think I'm going to write a message to my BFF about how cold it is here! She'll understand!
