*Dodged a Bullet*

Well, at least for now.... by mid-afternoon yesterday they had changed our forecast to include 10-15cm of snow instead of 5-10.... and we woke up to somewhere between 5 and 10cms.  Enough to make a mess of the roads and to require shoveling, but not enough to cause major delays and problems in the city.

Sadly, the temperature is dropping.... gonna be brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr here for a while.

I had an email from a friend of mine last night, asking if I would be willing to teach her group of 22 Girl Guides to make some Christmas Cards to donate to some seniors to use this year....  sadly the date she wanted me is a date I'm not available, but I volunteered my time and costs and put together 44 card kits (four designs, 2 cards per Guide) for them to play with at their meeting on December 1st.

My friend has made cards before and is familiar with paper crafting so I am sure she can walk the girls through it all without any difficulties.  I've written up directions for her just in case she needs them.  And each of the cards is a take on something I've created before, all of them pretty simple as the girls won't have a lot of time to create.

It was a lot of work, but I am glad I could do it for them!

Anyway.... for today.... a non-Christmas card....
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Early Espresso, Marina Mist; PTI White
*Tools:  Big Shot; Quickutz Retro Diamonds embossing folder
*Embellishments:  Stampin' Up! Marina Mist Ribbon; Michael's Bridal flowers; Kaiser Pearls
*Challenges:  Mojo138

This could have very easily been a winter card by substituting snowflakes for the flowers....

Enjoy your Tuesday!

Beautiful CAS card!!! All the shades of blue are so pretty together.

I'd love to send you some sunshine, but we are having a yucky weather week as well! :(

I just love your card! So pretty and soft with those blues. Stay warm with that snow...eeek. If it snowed even a 1/2 inch here in Texas, this city would completely shut down. :)
