Look what’s happening at my house this morning! SNOW – Lots of SNOW!

Morning Snow

From the time I took this picture, got it uploaded and fixed, it has snowed more and more! They have forecasted 8-12 for this area. Hmmmm, it is the Ohio Valley and you can never really tell! Anyhoo, get this picture,

Ellie in the snow

Miss Ellie loves playing in the snow. She slid half way across the deck – too funny!

Now, as much as I have begged for snow, pleaded for snow, want snow, NOT today. I need to drive close to two hours away on a good day, to pick Mallory up. She’s on Spring Break next week, leaving tomorrow – maybe, for somewhere sunny and warm! Lucky college kids!

I’m gonna play the proud mom a bit this morning. Our oldest, Kate, was inducted into the Mu Psi Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society in Education, last night! Needless to say, most of the family was there to celebrate such an honor with her. After the Induction Ceremony (where I couldn’t get a good picture if my life depended on it), there was a scrumptious banquet. Here are Kate and her other half, Will. Will graduates this May and is hoping to land a football coaching/teaching position. He has been coaching High School Football for his alma mater for three years now. Kate has another year, which one semester will be spent student teaching. Both of these kids work (close to full time) and carry heavy schedules. We are very PROUD of them!

Here’s Kate with her Aunt Carrie (my sister). Carrie checks in here every day – so Carrie this one’s for you!

Before I hit the road to pick up Mallory, I wanted to get to the SCS Limited Supply Challenge. I am so mad at myself over this card – I really screwed it up with the sentiment, and I honestly didn’t have the time to fix it today. BUT, I will!

The challenge today is a small card. Cards smaller than 4.25×4.25. Love making little cards, and I’ve had this idea for a few days and needed to try it. Gina K pointed out the other day that she had actually used Copic Markers on her stamps. Leave it Gina to figure that one out – or have the guts to try it! Of course, if she messes up her stamp, she does have plenty on hand.


Using the wildflower from Lizzie Anne’s In the Meadow, I colored directly on the stamp with Copic Markers, misted with Rubbing Alcohol and then stamped the image three times. I then got this wild hair that I wanted some type of background, so I found a square Nestability that fit the image, and using my Copic Airbrush System, I airbrushed the background with Cool Shadow. It left a perfect edge along the frame! Since, I had all the Nestabilities out, I went ahead and cut a scalloped edged square for my background layer. Now, here’s where I am mad at myself! I wanted a sentiment on the image, something light that wouldn’t take away from the image. I chose Old Paper Distress Ink for this, and I’ll be darned if it’s not crooked and too light – Live and Learn! The background for the card, which is 4×4 by the way, is made from scraps of BasicGrey Scarlett’s Letter. I distressed the edges and then sewed them to the card front on the sewing machine. The white dots were made with the new Inkssentials White Opaque Pen which should be available to purchase sometime soon. I’ll have to check on that!
