Desk Cleanoff Card for Fab Friday

Good morning! Did you get snowed in this weekend? We woke up to about four inches of snow on Saturday (and it kept coming), but driving in it was doable, so I went to my friend’s stamp camp and then came home and finished editing my husband’s book!! I’m so happy to have that done, and he’s happy to be sending the manuscript off to his publisher today. Yesterday we woke up to -3 degree temps, though, so all I have to say about that is BRRRRRR. No no no no no. Just no.

This is what I call a “desk cleanoff card”, one of my favorite kinds of cards to make lately. As the name suggests, I came across almost everything on the card as I was cleaning off my desk (after weeks of not being able to see the top of it). I had in mind to use the colors for the Fab Friday challenge on this card, so I added some Coastal Cabana elements to the things I’d found on my desk, and a card was born.

And now I just went and looked at the Fab Friday design team cards again and noticed my general layout is really close to Justin’s layout. While I do love his card and have saved it for later CASEing, that was actually not intentional. Oops!

Have a great day!
