Hello! Hope where you are it's warmer than here! Today it is a shocking minus 43 with windchill! Apparently at 3 am a city more north from here in our province was the coldest place on earth! Needless to say that when Chad heard that he decided that it was much too cold for Ariel to go to school! He said it's early dismissal anyways so it's not a full day. I think what may have motivated him was that he can work from home! He ended up having to go out anyways but he came back as fast as he could! The kids haven't left the house since Sunday morning when we went to church. They are starting to get a little stir crazy so I think tomorrow we will be going to stay and play no matter what, we need to get out! I have been cleaning, preparing great meals, crafting and yesterday I baked some blueberry muffins and peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
Today I have a card set to share. I don't know if you remember but I made the decision this year to work on card sets every month so that I have them on hand. I am going to work on using them as gifts or part of gifts for friends and family. And for teacher gifts! I really enjoy making card sets by the way! My blogging friend Ivy liked this idea so much she is going to do it too! Make sure to check her out here and see what she made, and leave her some love too! If anyone wants to join in please do! I think card sets make great gifts but leaving it to the last minute it never gets made! Here is the one I made:
I took a photo of the other 3 but it won't load right!
I made these cards in one evening. Working with patterned paper makes it faster and an easy way to pick your colors. I used the same piece of pp it was double sided, I couldn't decide which side I liked best so I went with half of the one side and half of the other side! I embossed the flower in black and white on the pp, tied some baker's twine by The Twinery around it and added a scallop edge. Make sure to check out Ivy's card set too!
I have been enjoying receiving mail lately from a few of my flickr friends! It's so fun to get a handmade card in the mail! :> Here they are in the order I received them:
I love all the border punches and that big silver bow!
I love the soft colors and the glitter! :>
This card is so creative!
And today I received this one from Alice!
So lucky am I! Thank you so much ladies! I enjoy receiving them as do my hubby and Ariel! :> I hope you all have a great week. I hope it warms up a bit I need to get out!
