Crafty Weekend

I met with my papercrafting buddies out at Archiver's yesterday for an afternoon/evening of scrapping.  Here's one of the cards I threw together  I have an old book that I like to tear pages out of for backgrounds, and my friend Marcia started actually reading excerpts from the page on this card which had us all in fits of giggles ... I think I should make it a point to read the pages before using them ... I'm just saying ... LOL.

It's a bitter cold day here in Omaha and they are calling for 6 inches of snow starting tomorrow night into Tuesday.  I am SO not looking forward to yet another hazardous drive to and from work on snowpacked streets - just makes me want to reconsider why I live in Nebraska.  The older I get, the longer it takes me to get warm in these frigid temps ... add to that the fact that I'm getting older and I worry about slipping on the ice and breaking something as well.  I now understand why people retire to warmer climates!  But I have many more years until I can retire, so I'll just go and turn on the fireplace and grab a good book and a hot cup of tea and enjoy a day of R&R inside where it's cozy.

Love, love, love this! The print is the perfect background. And I am sorry to hear about the snow...I am sure it is headed my way! Arghh!

Lilian, I love the way you used the page as the background and over stamped it! Perfection. I must admit, I had to enlarge the card so that I could go read the background. How funny! Be safe traveling around tomorrow, I, too, want to move to a warmer climate. Especially after this winter :-)

This is a gorgeous card! I love how you stamped right on the book page. I never think to do that.

Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog.

Stay warm and safe in this crazy weather!
