Good (cold, snowy) morning everyone!

Brrrr. It's been a little chilly here the past couple of days. We've been hit by a storm. Actually this is our first real snow since we've been here. It's snowed a little here and there, but this is the actual first bit of weather we've had.

Yesterday hubby came home from work because 1/2 the plant didn't show up again and there was no work so he came home. To his amazement there was no TV!! It really was not too bad without the TV because we've got movies to watch, it's just listening to the news on the radio was no fun. With the TV we can re-wind if we missed something. And of course I was moving from the front window to the back one to catch a glimpse of what was going on. There's been some houses on the street around us that have lost their trees, they've broken off or fallen. I'm worried about our huge weeping willow out back. It keeps leaning farther and farther over. Then of course we put in some Italian Cypress trees 2 years ago, we paid to get the larger ones ~ they are even leaning over. I hate to see the trees break, it takes so long for them to grow.

Well enough of that jibber jabber... Wanna see a card?

I'm still working on Valentine's cards. Just got a few more to make. I've had a piece of this paper from Darcie's for a long time and I've been wanting to use it. I keep it on the table next to me in case something pops into my head, and it finally did!
The paper is from Darcie's and I got it a long time ago from a show. I kept looking at it thinking that I wanted to do something with it and finally remembered that I had this cookie stamp. And of course, brown and pink ~ I think the perfect color combo ~ so voila! the card!!
The base card is Pink Pirouette that I layered with Chocolate Chip (of course!) and a piece of the Darcie's DP. I then took a piece of Chocolate Chip cs and used the Martha Stewart lace border punch along the bottom edge. I stamped 3 chocolate chip cookies from Ann-ticipations in Close to Cocoa ink, and highlighted the chips with my Chocolate Chip pen. I cut them out, sponged Close to Cocoa ink around the edges and layered them on to the Chocolate Chip panel. I added a length of brown and pink ribbon at the top of the panel.
I then stamped the sentiment from SU! Oh So Sweet set in Close to Cocoa ink and used my Pink Passion and Garden Green pens to color the little flower. I sponged Close to Cocoa ink around that panel and layered it on to a pieces of Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip scraps. I used pop dots to adhere to the card. The word "Valentine" is also a Darcie's stamp. I stamped that in Chocolate Chip and sponged Close to Cocoa around the edges, layered that on to a piece of Chocolate Chip scrap and adhered that to the card.
You can see the inside of the card at the bottom. I sponged Close to Cocoa ink around the edges, and added a piece of DP that I used the Martha punch on. I stamped the chocolate chips from the Oh So Sweet set in Chocolate Chip and the sentiment from Whipper Snapper that I shaded in with Close to Cocoa and Pink Passion ink.
I love this card. I may have to give it to myself Ü
That's all for today. I hope you like it!!
Have a great (warm and safe) day!

Joani, I love the colours on this card. That backing paper is gorgeous. That weather certainly looks very cold. Only cold and rain here for me in the UK thank goodness as I always worry about falling over in the snow so glad we haven't got it. Take care of yourself. Kym xxx
