Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful

We were certainly singing that song today as the blizzard moved through south-central Indiana. We cut our Christmas short yesterday to get home before the storm. We weren't scheduled to come home until today but decided that with up to 14 inches forecasted we thought we should drive home early so we weren't driving through nasty weather. It turned out to be a good move as we got about a foot of snow today. Here are a few pictures of my boys shoveling the driveway. This was with about 10 inches on the ground.

So it's been a fun day of staying home. Almost everything was closed including Indiana University, a very rare event. Unfortunately, if you are on vacation it doesn't count as a free day. Tom and I were on vacation. Oh well!

I had some time to play today. Finished a couple of design team projects for Doodle Pantry. Stay tuned for those next week. I am working on thank you cards for Christmas gifts too. But today I am sharing a card that I made at a make and take event for Hero Arts.

 The background is stamped with a gorgeous background stamp in white.  It took forever to dry even with heat drying it. I added the sentiment and background paper and the bow from twine. Fun time with all Hero Arts supplies. I am entering these challenges:

Hope your weather is bright and sunny and your Christmas celebration was wonderful! Thanks for stopping by today!

Glad you made it home B4 the snow. I hate it when it snows like that, but what can you do but shovel it out:O) Three more months till most of it is over, I always figure that when April comes it is over except for maybe one or two storms that melt away.... Love the card ,and the background stamp looks wonderful in white ink.
