Seize The Birthday

I am officially OVER winter. It snowed yesterday. That wasn't actually too bad; it was still a gorgeous, sunny day and the roads were fine. The snow started some time after midnight and ended pretty early. I enjoyed the fact that the snow was actually pretty for a day


By today, though, it was starting to get slushy and messy. I went to church for Bible Study, took one look at the ramp down to where we meet, and realized it as NOT gonna happen. Pure ice. The good thing was, in going home, I had time to finally get some pictures uploaded to Costco that my mom sent me of my niece. Mom hasn't mastered uploading and I'm just as happy to do it, so she just forwards them to me.  

I'm trying to get motivated to finish some cleaning up.... I'm hoping to have tea with a friend on Friday, so that'll be good incentive.

Cards for today

Seize The Birthday - Chevrons


My twine has come untied; I'll have to get some help to fix it so that the banner hangs better before I send this card out. You can't really tell, but I did give some of my paper a light sanding. And the banners are hand cut. I folded some pre cut strips of paper in half and attached it to the twine. The design was totally not mine; it's a CASE from a card at the sb store.

What a sunshiney card! Perfect for such a brutal day. I hope you are able to take it slow and be safe. We are having the storm now, and I am now stuck at the office as my train is suspended. I am with you, over the winter!

Super cute! Love the colours and all the chevrons. I hear you on the snow - it looks pretty at first then just makes a mess. Happy to not get much where I live. Where is spring? Thanks for playing along with Seize the Birthday!
