I hope you guys are staying warm. Here in Maryland, we've had near-record snowfall. Believe me when I say it's a tad chilly out there. Schools are closed and the kids are getting a little bit of cabin fever. I'll post some snow pics so you guys can see just how crazy it is in my front yard.
We lost our electricity twice. The first time was about 2:30 am, Saturday morning. It came back just after 6pm. So much for crafting or homework...or just about anything else, really. That was a day to stay under covers with lots of extra clothing on. I'm sure I looked exceptionally silly with my bathrobe on over my clothes, and then a scarf and mittens on top of that. Fashion was not the goal. Warmth was.
The electricity went back out later that night. I can't tell you how grateful I am to have our electricity back - and how spoiled I am by our heater! I'm still cold, but it's a lot warmer in here now.
I got started on this card last night. It's another multi-challenge card, using Paper Makeup Stamps Caffeine Trip, the sketch from Limelight Papercrafts, and this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge shop, Traveling Mama. (this card and this set)
In addition, PMS's Makeup 4 the Weekend #15 was to use pink and lots of bling. My SEI paper is all sparkly. I added 2 pink rhinestones to the upper left corner and, though you can't really see it in this photo, Rock Candy distress stickles to the sugar cubes.
ABC challenge: N is for New - the SEI paper and the rhinestones are new
Fussy & Fancy: Hearts
Crafty Calendar Challenge: love/friendship with hearts
Raise the Bar: Heart to Heart

Special hugs to Robyn Weatherspoon, who lost her father this weekend and to Shannan Teubner, who has lost her husband. My deepest condolences to both of these dear ladies and their families.
