Warming It Up

After so many weeks of steamy weather we had our first fire of the season tonight in our wood burning stove. Last Saturday we were close to 100 degrees here and on Monday we hovered around 60 degrees. Today it was very windy and chilly so the fire felt very good. So my card fits right in.


The image and sentiment are from Carolyn King's Warm Winter Wishes stamp set. The sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder. I used lots of Spellbinders die: classic large circles, scalloped circles and contemporary heart pendants (for the snowflakes). I embellished with lace, pearls and Stickels glitter.

The challenges that I'm entering this card in is:
Hope you liked my card today. I talked with my son, Steve, in Austria by email today. I was so thrilled to hear him say that he likes it there. He seems to be settling in well. He said people look at him oddly and sometimes there's a language barrier but he is enjoying his job and he's learning to cook. LOL! He said grocery shopping is a challenge. They don't have the things that we do in the US. But he'll conquer that challenge too I'm sure.

Hope your week is on the down side and everything is going well. Looking forward to Friday at 5pm. Take care!
