Happy Saturday everyone!!!!!!! Oh my word, what was your weather like this week? We had an ice storm with major power outages. No drama getting home from work this week as lessons were learned from two weeks ago. Steve and two GDOT trucks had the interstate completely to themselves on the drive home from work Tuesday. Wednesday when our power went out I still had a few card deadlines to meet so I bundled up in 3 layers, wore an ear warmer headband, gloves without finger tips that I made myself by cutting off the tips of an old pair and sat in the gloom coloring up an image. The finished card will be on the SCS site later today as one of the Dirty Dozen challenges if you want to take a looksie!
With Ice drama behind us, I set to work on this week's Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge which is to use chalk. I chalked the water and edges of the sentiment in blue.
While Janeen visited she showed me how to make paper puff up! There is probably a technical term for this but I don't know it. I have used my stylus to curl flowers and leaves but I had never curled paper from the back side of an image. It certainly adds fun dimension!
Stop on by Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps blog to view more design team creations and enter your card into the challenge!
It doesn't take a lot of ice to bring down the pine branches!
I braved the elements to take my "snow shot" down our road. Don't laugh! Branches were popping and falling all around me! :)
Storm doesn't like the snow. She yowled and came right up to me, otherwise she likes to climb up the nearest tree or run off into the woods to make new friends!
