Rain? In Woodland?

Hello stampers! 
Whoop-de-do!  It's Friday and I hope all of you Oregonians haven't been washed out to sea with the big storm that is hitting the area.  I'm writing this on Thursday night, after watching the weather forecast on KGW and it seems that ya'll are in for some torrential rains and high winds.  Be smart!  Stay home where you'll be safe and dry and stamp.  That's what rainy days are for.... unless you have to go to work :(

The forecast for Woodland and the Sacramento area is for possible rain tonight and tomorrow.  We haven't had any significant rainfall since we arrived on August 3rd, so we could really use some heavy drenching rain like you are getting in Oregon.  But I'm really doubtful that it will happen.  Time will tell.

Here's my card for Friday... hope you like it!

This is a Z-fold card... so easy to make!  I used the Pretty Pines Thinlit Dies (page 19 of the holiday catalog) to cut out the evergreen branches, the mistletoe, and the pinecone.  The greeting is from the coordinating stamp set, Christmas Pines, also shown on page 19.  I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla card stock, then cut it out with one of the Layering Oval Framelits (page 193 of the annual catalog).  I used on the scalloped Oval Framelits to cut the Cherry Cobbler mat for the greeting.  Last, I used some of the Cherry Cobbler Taffeta Ribbon at the top of page 20 in the Holiday catalog, tied it into a knot, and adhered it to the card with a glue dot. 

Here's a side view of the card, showing the Z fold...

Be sure to crease the folds well with your bone folder, as this step will help the card lie much flatter.  OK stampin' people, that's my post for Friday, October 14th.   May the weekend ahead offer you many chances to be creative.  Be safe and stay dry!

Hugs and happiness,
