Happy Saturday!


Well, we have some snow on the ground! I'm thinkin' the drifts are maybe over a foot. The Weather Reports say that Farmington had 4-7" in actual accumulation. The sun came out today and melted quite a bit of the top layer, so now we have our fingers crossed that this won't turn to ice after dark! Hope that where you are is warm and dry!



I have a couple of cards today - the first one is for the House Mouse Challenge #61. The challenge was to create a faux grid. I created my grid using the Scor-Pal, after coloring my image. I then applied a couple of layers of clear embossing powder. Hope you like it!


The next card is for the Cuttlebug Spot challenge. The challenge for this week was to use silver and black. Here is my card for the challenge - hope you like it!





I had a tough time with the pictures today - cards look all crooked and misshapen - sorry! Couldn't fix the glare on the mouse card - sheesh! Some days are just like that, YOU know what I mean, I know you do!!! Hoping that DD will have time soon to give me some lessons with my camera!



Well, have a blessed Sunday, and if I don't see you before, I'll be back for a Magical Monday! Here is a sneak peek of my Monday project!

Hey you!!! I've missed you! I'm finally coming up for a little air. And what do I find, not one but two awesome cards! I LOVE the Mouse House card... it looks quilted, and your coloring is perfection! And I love the embossed metal look of the second. Snowy days are the best for staying in and stamping!

Now, on I go to see what else I've been missing...

Love and hugs my friend!

Love them both - wonder where you got the "house mouse" stamp - hmm...talk about inspiration to use that stamp. And the silver/black card is beautiful - wish I hadn't already made my wedding card - I probably would have cased yours!!

They're lovely Patti. Have you got a scanner? If a card is quite flat
they scan pretty well.

Love the embossed silver paper! Reminds me of an old fashioned tin ceiling!
