Snow, snow go away.....

Silly me.....I thought we were going to get through a winter with no snow. Alas, it's been snowing all day so 'tis not to be.

Trying to lift my weather glum, I turned to card making. This started as an Easter card but ended up a baby card instead. After all, it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind, right? I used some more of my Making Memories paper from the "English Garden" collection then did some cutting with the Cricut Home Accents cartridge, added a Melissa Frances rub-on, some ribbon, a pretty flower and a cute little baby booties sticker I got from the $1 store many moons ago.

This was the back of my place this morning....lovely and clear, no need to wade through any drifts of snow.......

And this is the back of my place a few hours ago. How quickly the tide turns...and not for the better!

Yay Canada!

The Olympics are well on their way and I am so proud of all the Canadians who have done their country proud. It's always nice to have the home ice advantage but, really, I enjoy watching all the athletes and their talents truly astound me.

Now that I am done nightshift, I can finally get down to some crafting. I made this pretty Birthday card with some Making Memories papers then added some vintage lace, gingham ribbon, a few rhinestone stick-on brads and a pretty flower and voila - a beautiful card! Not that I'm tooting my horn or anything but....well...if you don't love yourself, nobody will.

Happy Heart

Here's a pretty Victorian Valentine's Day card I made up with some K&Company paper. I printed the sentiment from the Internet - such nice wording and no mushy crap - then tea-stained the lace, added a glittery heart, a flower and some ribbon and voila!

How many different ways can we describe how busy we are? I know I say this everytime I post but is there ever just a day to sit and relax? All my fave shows are coming back on - LOST, Survivor, Amazing Race, Grey's Anatomy - I can hardly fit them into a week. I must admit I do much prefer viewing these shows on DVD with no commercials. The first episodes of LOST would have been half the time had it not been for the commercials. I mean, I get it. The Olympics are coming. They don't need to remind me every 7 minutes.
