Season to be Freezin'

You can say again! It's been very cold here ever since we got the last 5 inches of snow. And guess whose furnace went out overnight last night. Fortunately the heating people were here by 9:30 am this morning to fix it and it didn't cost us an arm and a leg. At least he didn't tell us we needed a new furnace. So we do have heat back on for which I am very grateful. It was very cold in here this morning.
I did go to volunteer at Head Start this morning. Poor little Arthur has an eye and ear infection so he couldn't go but Valerie was there. Most of the kids have the sniffles and a cough so I was forever wiping noses and washing my hands! I don't need any more germs, thank you very much! I have plenty of my own. Valerie is very different when Arthur isn't around and it's fun to watch what she does.
I finished a card last might that's pretty simple but I really like it.


I printed off the snowman from QKR Stampede called Feeding the Birds. I think he is such a cutie. I colored him is shades of blue. Then I used my white gel pen to add some dots for interest. I stamped on my sentiment which is from Peachy Keen Stamps called Chill Baby Chill (no longer available). I inked it with MFT Blueberry pigment ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. And to finish it off I found several snowflakes on my desk from another project. The snowflakes are from MFT Layering Snowflake dies. The card base is a dark blue. That snowman really makes a cute card! I am entering these challenges:

Well I have to run back to Head Start and pick up Valerie. Her Dad isn't feeling well today and my daughter doesn't drive so it me. I had just enough time to get some lunch, put on a pot of chili and make this post. Thanks for stopping by. Stay warm!
