Happy Saturday, everyone! Phew, it’s good to be back online, have electricity, heat, hot running water…..all the stuff you take for granted until it’s not there! 58 hours without power gives one a sense of what’s REALLY important in your life, LOL! I did get a little bit of stamping done (it was pretty chilly in my stamp room) and I made a collage-style Valentine card for the Kraft Journal’s challenge 157, Here’s My Heart, and Shopping Our Stash 137, Love Me Tender:
I had this little cherub printed out for another project, but didn’t use it, so I cut him out and popped him up on a card base I stamped with about a million or so images from various stamp companies—I may have gone a bit overboard, I think! But it is fun to use them, especially ones for specific holidays that you don’t get to use too much! I also added some glitter on the little guy’s wings, some sequins, a felt heart, a leaf stick-pin:
a couple little banners, and a glimmer heart!!!
So many of you probably encountered the ice storm that took away our power, but here are a couple of pictures to show you what we dealt with, which really wasn’t bad considering all the other damage around the state:
Our pine trees in the driveway suffered a lot of broken branches:
Our neighbor lost a big branch on his tree:
But it was pretty!
The strange thing was the noise; as I walked around the yard, it sounded like rifles being shot – branches were breaking and falling all through the woods! As I was taking pictures, one of the pine branches fell a few feet from me! A close call for sure! Nature’s way of pruning, I guess!! Hope you all are safe & sound wherever you live!
While we were stuck inside, we did some tattooing!!!
