Together & Other Stuff

I feel like I'm still not back into my routine after it got messed up a week ago. DH's car died, so I lost two days of stamping time while we were out looking for another one. Thankfully we found a great deal! I also had a stamping class squeezed in, and so I lost more stamping time because I have to cart everything upstairs and leave it for two days. So I was very happy to get back into my stamping studio and discover that my mojo didn't disappear!
We got another foot of snow yesterday on top of the stuff we already had. The wall of snow on the side of our driveway is up to the car windows. DH thankfully didn't have to work, so he was out snowblowing the neighborhood and helping get cars unstuck from the end of driveways. It was crazy snowy! It snowed the whole night before and stopped somewhere around 6pm yesterday. There were over 500 school closings in the area. Needless to say, we stayed home! Denise, I still have hot chocolate, when are you coming to see me?

I've been iPicked! Thanks Nancy, glad you enjoyed the card! This is the card she chose.

And here's card that could be anniversary or valentine's or whatever!
I've had this set for awhile, but it just saw ink for the first time yesterday. I stamped the owls on two different sheets of patterned paper and cut and pieced various parts of them. The smaller owl is popped up on dimensionals. I had a question from a reader asking how I attach buttons, and all I use is SU's mini glue dots.
