Snow Wonderful

Hello, hello...
I hope that you are having a great day!!!   My son is off from school today and for the rest of the week actually, so together we are catching up on the house duties and going to start grating pumpkins.  We are grating pumpkins because my mom and I are going to be making a traditional Puerto Rican dish, sometime in the weeks to come.

So anyways....over the last few many new and exciting things are happening to me, (personally).   I wish I could share them with you, but I have to talk to someone very close to me first, before he hears the news from someone else....then I will be crushed.  So with all this exciting news, I couldn't sleep and got to working on a card.

Here it is:

I used this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch:

And a photo inspiration from Sweet Stampin :

The snowman is from Penny Black Holy-Jolly stamp set, the sentiment and wood fence are from Craft Lounge Tweet Winter Wishes stamps set, patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Glittered Christmas Papers.

  1. super cute card......thanks for joining in the fun this week at Penny Black Saturday....hugs kath xxx

  2. Your card is adorable and that inspiration pic of the cookies is making me want COOKIES big time!

    If you already LOVE DS on your computer and can Return your GYPSY, I would seriously consider it! IF you paid a lot...even more, because they will $99 on Black Friday at Michael's. I paid $125 with free shipping and can't return it now, as it does work and I'd be stuck with shipping and re-stocking fee...but I almost WISH I did NOT buy it.

    I think there is a Love/Hate Relationship with Gypsy owners. And unless you are very patient and want to design off the computer it may be for you!

    Had I known I would have so many issues I NEVER would have bought it. After ALL this time it's been out, you would THINK it would be easy and no issues...WRONG!!!

    Good Luck...let me know how it goes!!


    PS: I can't wait to hear all your wonderful GOOD news! Sounds very exciting!! Lots of Happy Wishes!!
