Smiley from Good morning!  How y’all doin?  It’s snowy here today and its gonna be a great day to spend some time in the studio!  We are expecting up to 6 inches, but one thing I’ve learned living in the Ohio Valley . . . they never get it right.  Smiley from On February 4-6, 1998, they predicted 1” of snow and we had 22.  Since that time the weather stations make sure everyone panics  Smiley from . . . go to the store, get your milk and bread . . . and it misses us entirely.  It will be interesting to see what happens with this winter storm!

I’m supposed to be teaching a class at Lavender Sentiments Wednesday night as long as the weather cooperates.  We’re going to be making gift/memo boxes and I still need to get a sample made  . . . I’ve got some wicked ideas using distress inks and coffee filters!Smiley from

After spending the morning yesterday working on behind the scenes DT stuff and then an early dinner with my mom, aunt, sister, brother-in-law and uncle (it was mom’s birthday on Saturday), I headed home and went down to the studio.  I received a packet of stamps from

Just For Fun® the other day and have so many new images to play with.  One of them was this fabulous floral image that I just had to use for today’s card.


The image was embossed with Queen’s Gold EP and then water colored with Tombow Markers.  I used Spellbinders™ Oval Nestabilities to die cut/emboss the image.  Because the oval was just a bit shy of actually fitting the image, I outlined the oval with gold acrylic paint before I sponged the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink.  Just for the heck of it, I added a frame die cut/embossed using Labels Eleven.

Thanks for stopping by today and remember . . . life is short, enjoy the adventures the day brings!
