Scrap Card for SAS

Something about cutting paper all day didn't make me feel all that excited about prepping the materials for this card I was planning to include in the stash. So, I rewarded myself for all my hard work by going blog surfing. I found this card at Amy V.'s blog and thought that punching a bunch of squares with my 1 3/8" square punch would be preferable to measuring and cutting a bunch of smaller squares for the other one.

So this is what we're going to be making instead! It's cheerful, it uses up scraps, it showcases the beautiful, new 5/8" grosgrain ribbon SU!'s now offering, and it's quick.

Weather update: it's now sleeting--freezing rain--and is expected to do so most of the night, so perhaps I was a bit premature in mocking the school administrators for closing school. Note the snowball in the boy's hand and the accompanying grin. It's not like getting a true snow, but it still packs and it still throws!
