It's cold, blustery, frigid, whatever you want to call it. COLD...It is only 18 degrees. I don't know what the windchill is and I really don't want to know. We have about 6 inches of snow, which in our area isn't much. I got out this morning and cleared the driveway. Hubby came out to give me a few pointers and after a few minutes of realizing that I wasn't doing it to suit him... I politely said..."Bug Off", I'm doing it my way".. It may not have been his way, but it looked pretty good to me when I got finished. LOL. The end result was to clear the snow from the driveway and I accomplished that. We've had this snowblower for two years and I just wanted to see if I could operate it... I can... Will I do it again? Probably not unless it's a necessity! LOL
I came in and thought I would take some time to craft while trying to get warm... I did carft, however I have NOT gotten warm yet and it's afternoon already. Hot coffee, nor lunch has warmed me up at all.
Here are some of the fruits of my crafting labors today.
I know...it's not Christmas...However I actually made this the other day because I loved the image and the papers. I would like to enter it in the following challenge
Paper Take Weekly Winter scene/ or icy colors, blues, whites, lilacs and greys.
I have used lilacs and whites along with snowflake paper in the background around the Nativity. This is probably a stretch so it it doesn't meet the criteria just delete it from your challenge.
I was goofing off expermenting with some red embossing powder. This is the result of my experimenting. I sort of like the look. Also embossed the edge around the roses with gold embossing poweder.
and used a die cut from my cricut home decor for mounting.
Crafty Card Makers Use red and a die cut (mounting label is a die cut)
Stamptacular Sunday Sketch (I love this sketch)
Little disappointed in this card. The words.. I and love doesn't show up well in the photo, but it is embossed with gold embossing powder. Love the font and both of my stamps are bargin buys from Michaels. 75 cents each!

Although I am not really a silver, black and white type person for some reason this card appealed to me. I made this as a "thank you" but couldn't figure out where to put it on the outside, so it is in the inside. When I got it finished I found it fit quite a few challenges this week... Lucky me. The flowers are old stamps by outlines. I really tried to not get my skin reflection in the silver mirri paper... No luck! The leaves really are silver, not skin tone. LOL
