In honor of Valentine's Day, my gift for you is some artwork - yeah! I know I have been promising so I thought today would be a great day to share this card with you.
I made this card for a make and take at a recent gathering I held. I just love it because it is so versatile - it can be used any time of the year. This stamp set is great too not only is this cute little owl part of the set, but there is a little owl and some mushrooms - very retro. The design of the card is based loosely on a card created by a fellow CTMH consultant (Vicki Wi).

I hope these will be memories that she will remember for ever because she will always be Daddy's Little Girl.
Note: As I have been a bad blogger and Project 365 poster, this picture is actually out of order...but then I have skipped a whole bunch anyway that I haven't posted...so please, excuse my tardiness...just this once.
Other great photos from the night:

Yep, you heard me...the roof.
Today's picture is not what I wanted for the picture of the day...funny thing is, I was outside getting ready to take the intended picture of the day when I got sidetracked by a very loud noise. Thinking that the snow on the roof of the garage had finally melted and fallen off due to the heat wave we have been having, I moved out of the way so that I didn't get caught in the avalanche when it fell off the front. After a few minutes, I realized the snow wasn't moving off that roof and went into the house to see if the snow fell off the back...I didn't get far to realize that the noise was snow falling - but not off the roof...but with the roof - right into my house!
We have a screened in sun porch off the back of the mudroom...my favorite place to read a book in the Spring, Summer and warmer Fall nights - especially in a rain storm - well, that porch does not exist as it did just this morning anymore...so with that I give you 042/365:
and a couple more for a better view:
This one is from my bedroom window. Pretty huh?This is actually from on the porch - a great view of the Hot Tub - now doesn't that look inviting?
We are waiting for the Insurance Adjuster to call...keep your fingers crossed that we can claim this and have it fixed. I am impatient as it is - a need it done now type of girl - and waiting for Spring for this monstrous mess to be cleaned up is going to kill me...I just hope we don't have to foot the whole bill.
