SNOW DAY, You Float My Boat, and an Award!

It's a SNOW DAY! My girls are home from school! We have a lot of snow outside, and it's still snowing. My husband is stuck in Florida, and he can't get a flight home since they are all getting canceled. Well, I guess if you're going to be stuck somewhere, it's good to be stuck somewhere with warm weather! I don't actually know how to work the snow blower though, so I'll be shoveling in a little bit. My back hurts already just thinking about it!


I got some great images in a small SBS2 image swap. These came from Lori, and I just had to do some gamsol coloring last night with these Stampin' Up images. I think this boat is so cute. I added the Prima as an afterthought, and now I'm thinking it looks out of place on a nautical card. Hhhmmm . . . I love those little clouds of smoke! Aren't they cute?


Next, I got an award from my SBS2 sister Kathleen and from my very good blogging friend Andrea. Thank you ladies. I'm seriously honored when someone presents me with these awards! I think they're so fun! I'll be happy to spread the love! This time, I'm going to concentrate on some of my SBS2 sisters. I'm spreading the love to seven of my sisters: AnnMarie, Becky, Bonnie, Flossie, Lori, Lori, and Maria. It's hard to give these awards out, because I want to give it to everyone! Thank you Kathleen and Andrea! I'm thrilled that you thought of me!

Thanks for stopping by everyone! Have a great weekend!
