Thanks Snow Much...eventhough Spring is in the air

hey there!

First off i should apologize for being a bit MIA over the past few weeks. i was so on a roll with posting and then BAM! this nasty head cold hit me like a mack truck and i needed to conserve what energy i actually had for keeping up with the housework and staying conscious enough to get my kids where they needed to be. by the time i had any "free" time to create, i opted for sleep as i am not too sure what i would have created would have been worth looking at anyway...those toothpicks holding my eyes open and the tissue box permanently attached to my nose tended to get in the way.

Anywhoo...i am now feeling somewhat normal, at least enough to be back into my routine and even got a little crafty at the end of last week. i would have posted sooner, but i decided to recoop enough this past weekend to get in a little spring skiing...probably our last of the season which is a bummer 'cuz we had such a great family winter, but now i do have a little extra time to catch up on my scrapbooking.

So today, i have this cute little card to share with you. i know spring like weather is hitting most of the country (at least if it is in the mid-50's in MA, i am considering it spring-like) but i made this little card as a thank you for the ski patrol (along with a basket of blueberry and pumpkin strudel muffins) at the mountain we have season passes at. thankfully we did not need their services..instead they were kind enough to take kelsey under their wings and let her ski with them for a few afternoons. she was also able to help them with scenario training and posed as their victim. she had a wonderful time, a great experience and we are truly thankful that they were kind enough to indulge her and foster her interests.

{thank you snow much}

The sketch for the card came from a card on this post by Mercy. I absolutely love her work and her sketch challenges are so much fun. the paper (just chillin) and stamp set (wonderful winter) are both CTMH, but unfortunately both are now retired. i used my piercing tool and one other (current) CTMH stamp set (simple stitches) for the faux stitching with vineyard berry ink. the sentiment is printed from ms word using comic sans and jokewood fonts. i have to apologize as i apparently took this shot before i trimmed my ribbon...{sorry}.

On my list of things to accomplish this week is "print pictures" so i am heading on over to yorkphoto.com who is offering 100 prints for $10 (shipping included) until the 17th and printing a whole bunch of pics that are sitting on my computer...then I am getting in the crafty mode and scrappin' away...i hope to be able to share soon.

enjoy your day (and the weather),
