*Left The Bitter Cold Behind*

I am happy to be away from Calgary for the next few days....  this morning at 6am, the windchill in Calgary made it feel like -41C (that's -41.8F).... and here in Toronto, where I am visiting my sister this week, it was +13C (55F).

Yup, glad I'm here!

Felt bad for the family and friends back home though....  that is one hell of a cold day!

I had a good day with my sister today....  the mall where I bought some new shoes (discovered yesterday, in the rain, that there were holes in the soles of my shoes... hello wet feet), lunch with her (and now our) friend Birute, Scrapalicious, Scrapbooking Queens, Starbucks, the liquor store and WalMart.  Lots of running around but it was fun!

I'm dreaming of warmer temperatures... so a card with some flowers for you today...
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  PTI White; Stampin' Up! Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz
*Patterned Paper:  Imaginisce (this is actually Halloween paper!)
*Images:  Stampavie
*Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
*Embellishments:  Pebbles Candy Dots
*Challenges:  MTSC86

I know... this image is totally too "cute" for me... but I needed some images to play with my Copics.... and this one was cute without being too over the top for me!

For those still reading... a quick story for you.... I almost didn't make it to Toronto!!!  I set my alarm on Sunday morning when I got out of bed.... for 5:10am... when I set the alarm, the alarm automatically turns "on".... but I managed to turn it off instead....  at 5:40am (about the time we should have been leaving for the airport), Bruce woke up and woke me up with a "what time was your alarm set for?".  I nearly died when I saw the time!  Thankfully I was all packed except my toiletries.... so it was a quick trip to the bathroom to clean up my hair a bit, put on a bit of make up and finish packing... we were out the door a mere 10 minutes later (too me 6 minutes to get "beautiful" and dressed) and I was at the airport 55 minutes before my flight.


Thanks for popping by!

Blah blah blah... you just had to rub it in don't you? It was FREEEEZING today! Glad to hear you were able to beautify yourself in 6 minutes. You're right... that image is too cute for you, but I love it!

Wow, almost missed the flight! Glad you did and it is warmer, still too cold for me. Glad you had a great time shopping, sounds fun. Your card is adorable, it definitely is full of cuteness.
