Snow day...!

Hello there! How are you today?! We are STIIIIIIIILLLLLLL snowed in! LOL I got up this morning and walked 2 miles (in the snow!), did 2 loads of laundry, did the dishes and paid some bills....then I dove into my craft to do list! I got a swap started, finished and mailed! (I piled on the postage stamps and walked the mile down our driveway to put it in the mail box though because our driveway is not drivable yet!) Then I did 9 (woo hoo!!!) scrapbook pages! They were all 6 x 6 and are going into a gift album for my step-dad! I got the album all finished up! I will post those layouts tomorrow! :)

The swap I worked on was a Valentine card swap! The particulars were:

1) It must have red somewhere on it!
2) It must have ribbon on it!
3) It must have a heart somewhere on it!
4) It must be accompanied by chocolate!

Here is my card:





I used my SU! scallop punch and heart border punch. I used a sliver of K and Co DP and embossed the card with a SP! embossing folder. I added the heart on pop dots and the little tag is from SP!'s Tiny Tags. The card is 5.5 x 5.5 square!

I forgot to take a picture of my accompanying chocolate, but it was a Hershey bar wrapped in matching DP with a matching heart! <3 This was a wonderful challenge full of love! :) It was hosted by my very sweet friend and adopted Aunt Cindy! :)

Also, (insert drum role pleeease!!) I am soooooo excited to say that I turned my blog from a 2 column blog to a 3 column blog all by my onesie!! I even changed the size of the margins all by myself!! I know that is not a difficult thing, but you must understand that I do NOT speak computer...at all! LOL It is a miracle in itself that I am able to keep this blog going! I was super proud of myself and felt like if only for a moment that I spoke geek! Go me!! *Doing a little dance...all around the room!!!* LOL

Ok, I am off to work on a few cards as long as I am in craft stealth mode!!

Have a wonderful night! I will be back soonest! :) I have lots to share!
