Where did spring go?


Brr!  I wish this cold weather would go away.  Hopefully April snow will bring May flowers :)


The weekly MFT Wednesday sketch challenge is keeping my butt in gear to keep creating, and I couldn't miss my first week of the year!  I just love MFT's 'Crazy for Daisies' and I thought she'd be perfect with this beautiful new Echo Park paper.


The sentiment is from MFT's More Essential Sentiments.

challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Punches or Die Cuts (Martha Stewart border punch)
Stamptacular Sunday - Freebie Week
Oozak challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

While our kids are having a five day weekend, thanks to the busses being cancelled for our snow day on Thursday, we're still keeping busy, since their training continues as usual.  I'm looking forward to their day off on Sunday!

If you stopped by and saw our snow day photos from yesterday, here are the results from their efforts:



They raided all of the veggies in my bin, so there's a variety of red and orange peppers, celery, potatoes, broccolini, etc... those should be pleasant when the snow's gone!  :p

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hugs,

Snow Day!


My poor kids got up at 5 this morning and headed off to the pool through our snow storm only to find out that the power was out, so home they came again.  School busses were cancelled, so they've gotten a rare day off!

I was lucky they were home, since they got to push me when I got stuck in the driveway, and then they helped me shovel the driveway clear when I got restuck a foot later, and then pushed me again until I made it into the garage :)


To everyone driving in this, stay safe!

Sasy Pants



I was so happy when the mailman brought my MFT order yesterday, it's so hard to wait for shipping to Canada!  Of course, I immediately inked up all of my stamps!  They are all so cute, who could resist?  :)  This one is called Cute-a-tude, which suits her so perfectly!


Thank heavens for my bow-easy, because I am the worst bow tier, ever!  I think I have all thumbs when it comes to that :)

This layout is from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Club this week.  It was looking a bit busy with patterned paper behind, so I switched it up for the white cardstock and it seems better to me.


Copic colours:  E000, 00, 21, 11, BV000 / E31, 34, 35, 37 / V05, 06, RV66 / R81, 83, CB, V05, CB/ T5
