I'm sick (yuck) but we have snow (YAY!!!)

Uh, yes I do realize that is a weird title for this post. Just keeping things in perspective at the moment. ha! Well, I've got to remember what's good today as I lay here feeling like um.... *you know what*. I'm totally not trying to create a whine fest here or anything, but geesh, I got Steve's cold earlier this month which luckily only lasted about a week and just Monday night I started feeling nauseous and was sick all that night (like that ugly sick that luckily you only get a couple times in your life) and all the next day. I even called in sick for work today which I don't ever like doing. I am feeling better stomach wise, but man-o-man my body aches and I feel weak. Whah, whah, whaaa.. I know..lol!
So, I thought I would put some of this down time to use and share with you what I woke up to on Monday morning. I just love how pretty the snow is. Here is another fun collage (love these things lately..ha) of our neighborhood and home the morning after a bit of snow fell.

Scrappy wise:

Here's a layout that should make you laugh....Um, or cry..ha, ha!
Though the hair cut I was sporting at the time totally makes me cringe, it just had to be scrapped about. The photo was taken almost 8 years ago during my 21st birthday party. Good times that night..lol!

Here is one I did about a month ago using all of the fun new KI memories stuff---LOVE this lace paper.

I've been in the mood for creating cards (and a tag) lately and here are a few of my favorites :)
I just love the colors of Tinkering Ink's Botanical Bliss line of papers and embellishments. I used some Stickles to add some sparkle to bird. Gotta have a wee-bit of glitter, right?!?

I used a template from Mirkwood designs to create this card, along with Tinkering Ink's "Haberdasher" line of papers and rubons and some fun May Arts ribbon.

Another card using a template from Mirkwood designs along with Tinkering Ink papers, KI memories lace paper and some Junkitz jewels. I had to alter the template a bit as the wings of the butterfly are suppose to intertwine, but I couldn't get mine to do that w/o ripping, so this is what I came up with. :) "Make it work!" Right?!?! :)

This one is just fun and colorful. A "Just because" type card. I love getting those. To create this card I hand cut the flowers from Piggy Tales new line called, "Ba, Ba black sheep" and combined it with some KI Memories paper (Did I say I loved that stuff...lol) and some ribbon and jewels.....oh, yeah and my beloved Doodlebug alphas that I am using on everything lately.

Steve and I had a great time at my parents Christmas party this weekend and my sis took a couple pics of us together. It's always nice to have new pics.

So, we wish you ALL a very wonderful holiday season!

Those cards are great!! Love the colors. And I love the layouts as well.
The pic of you and your husband is really cute!
We got about 9 inches of snow here in chicago last weekend and I got some great pics of our kids sledding to put on my blog!
Yes, snow is pretty but not nice to drive in...LOL.

What a great pic of you two! Yes, we did have a great christmas party, and you and Steve were alot of fun. I love all the cards you have been making! Lucky you to have so much snow at your house. I guess dad and I should have moved 15 miles closer so we could have more snow. Oh! well we'll just come to your house!
Luv Ya! Ma
