Ice and yuck!!

As I sit in my living room this Friday afternoon I am thankful for a great job that let us out early on a yucky weather day. (below is a picture of my deck a few hours ago)  About 10 this am the snow started and since it was so cold it stuck fast then it turned to freezing rain and sleet.  I left work sometime after 12 and arrived home about 2pm.  Mind you I am only 33 miles away from my job!!  It is usually a 40-45 minute drive.  In some area I drove 20 miles an hour!  Plus I was so worried in my new car! I so did not want an accident in it!!

Now hours later it is worse. My deck is covered with ice and slush.  The birds even have ice on them!  I am sitting enjoying having an afternoon off even if I really cannot go anywhere. I was going to my craft room but the house is so cold I am snuggling under a blanket on my couch!  I am sure some of you are laughing at the small amount on my deck!  But realize I live in NC and we have no idea how to handle this!  Well I do but I am one of the few!  Ok now on to my card!!!

I am sharing my last thank you card for the holiday season!  This was really easy to put together!  I cut one inch strips of DP and put it on a strip of black with red twine, then last stamped with a sentiment.  I really love how fast this came together!  Well I am off to enjoy the rest of my evening snuggled under my blankets!  Have a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Sunday!  I am so happy that there is only one weekend left of Jan!  It means one more month closer to warmer weather! The days are already longer!  I really do not like dark days!  I hope everyone is fairing well with their weather.  We will be cold again this week, but not to cold!  Last week we were suppose to get snow but when I woke up Friday there was nothing and I was so happy!! 

Here is another Thank You that I made for my Christmas gifts.  I used paper I made over the summer when PTI had there stamp camp.  I really love how easy it was to make!  The card came together fast with craft card stock as the base the the home made paper is fixed to a black swatch.  I stamped the Thank you sentiment in the center with black.  I really like the way it came out.  Well I am off to watch the AFC Championship game GO PAT'S!!!  Have a great week!!

New Year

Greetings!  I hope everyone is well!  I can not believe I have not blogged since November!  December was a blur.  It was busy, long and one I hope never to repeat again!  I had some wonderful moments, but some really tough ones too. So I am so glad for the New Year and new month!
 I am still trying to figure out how it is the 13th of Jan. already!  The weeks just fly by!!  I don't know about you all but our weather is crazy!  For the last two days we have been in the 70's!  Oh my I had my windows open yesterday and today. I love when I can air the house out in the middle of winter.   I have spent a little time in my craft room but really have not spent that much time.  Since the football season is coming to an end I have a feeling I will be spending more time in there!
Today I am sharing one of my thank you cards that I made for Christmas.  I made the same card in three different colors two of each.  I really like how they came out. The picture is not great I so need a new camera!!  I forgot how fun it is to use the embossing folders!! I plan to use more in my future cards!

Well I am off to watch the rest of the Patriots game and finish making dinner.  I hope everyone is well and has a great week! I will be back sooner than a month this time!  Thanks for stopping by!
