Another Valentine Offering

After a calm day yesterday, Mother Nature has unleashed her nasty side today.  We have been hit with snow that has been falling steadily since the middle of the night last night.  It is going to continue all night tonite and all day tomorrow.  They are predicting another 5 inches tonite and 4+ more tomorrow.  We already have probably 4-5 on the ground already.  Tomorrow is my first day back to work & just getting there should be a real challenge.

Speaking of challenges, I am going to enter this valentine in the following challenges:

Penny Black at Allsorts  January challenge

Craft Your Days Away Challenge #11-Anything Goes

Flutter By Wednesday

One Crazy Stamper January "Love" Challenge

How is that for a surprise!  I've gone from someone afraid to even think of entering to someone having a lot of fun entering challenges.  I've gone from thinking of challenges as a competition to more of a way to meet other stampers & that has taken all the fear out of it!  There are some great gals out there making just amazing cards. If I looked at their cards first, I would never enter!  ha ha

This card is another Penny Black stamp.  The paper is from K & Company & while it isn't the traditional pink or red usually associated with a valentine, I just fell in love with it & used it anyway.  The punches used were all Martha Stewart.

Good luck to everyone affected by the snow.  I hope we all have a safe journey to work & home again tomorrow!

Catch you later.

  10. Hi Sherri

    Another gorgeous creation .. .. you are certainly on a roll now!

    I love entering challenges as they make me think differently and I surpise myself sometimes when I come up with a design that I would never have thought of by myself. Lots to learn through challenges .. about ourselves .. .. but especially from other crafters. I love seeing what other people did when they were given the same brief.

    Gorgeous papers and colour choices on this one and great use of your punches and dies!

    Hope you got to work OK (and more importantly got home OK too).

    Thank you for sharing with Penny Black at Allsorts again this month.

    Love Jules xx
