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!!



  1. Hi Jessie! Looks like your weather is perfect for snuggling under a blanket and blogging! ;-) Another great thank you card - thanks for sharing!!

  2. Oh that seems so cold. How wonderful that you got to go home early . I'm the same way if I'm too cold much better to just snuggled up .i can just see you all worried about your new car. ( I would be the same way)
