The flower, circles and heart punches are all from SU! The baby hearts are negatives from a MS punch. I stamped the Very Vanilla paper with a SU! (french script) background stamp and the embossed it with the Swiss dot folder. The pink paper is the reverse side of the green paper and is also retired from SU!. That will do it for me with card making for today.

Hearts and Flowers
I tried very hard to make a card that would fit the sketch over at Stars and Stamps this week, but I just could not do it. Everyone else seems to get their cards to look so very nice, but I just could not come up with anything that satisfied me so I went a whole different route. Obviously this will not be entered into that challenge, but I'm OK with how it ended up and it is just another card that can go into my next OWH box. I decided not to put a sentiment on the card front.
Little story for you and a thought for any of you in our area that have had a lot of snow. Our washer and dryer is on the ground level of our house and are near a window. I noticed that by the end of yesterday's snowfall I could not see out of the window at all anymore and when I mentioned that to Hubby this morning it dawned on him that that meant the dryer vent was blocked by snow. Needless to say we (mostly Hubby) had to spend some time outside this afternoon digging out the dryer vent. In order to do that he had to make a path from our little courtyard into the house which is about 5 feet in and the snow is over 4 feet high in that area. Poor Hubby was out there for over 1 1/2 hours and then his back started to give out so he came inside. It was to the point that you had to throw the snow way over your head. I wanted to help so, against his wishes, I went out but could only make it for about 20 minutes when I started with my Exercised Induced Asthma and was whizzing so hard I had to quit. Hubby will be heading back out there again in a while to finish the job. The vent is not down that low, but it is just that the snow is up that high. Fun in the North East. Thanks for stopping by again today and I wish you a good evening.
