Hey, everyone! Happy Monday....thought I would do a little catching up, on this freezing cold morning! Things seem to move in slow motion around here when it is as cold as it has been. -30 F. is just too cold...Luckily, we saw the low 20's for a while yesterday. It was like a heat wave! It is safe to say that I am deathly sick of this cold weather, and looking forward to spring flowers and the return of the American Robin! DH is still laid off, but getting some catching up done around here, as well as on the snow mobile! One more week of school for DS, and then he will have a week off. Mom needs a break, too! We are currently caring for my in law's dog, who happens to be be our dog's brother. My in laws visit family in Florida for a month or so every winter. Unfortunately, shortly after Shadow came to stay with us, he fell sick, and was diagnosed with inoperable cancer. We have been caring for him, and he is not in pain or suffering yet, so we are spoiling him rotten and giving him all our love. Things have been crazy!
I made a tag yesterday, using my new Big Blossom stamp from Stampin' Up!'s Sell-a-bration promotion. I visualized it going well with my Cool Cat set, and I was right! I love how it turned out. I used SU! Pink Passion ink and cardstock, black staz on ink, SU! Only orange ink, and highlighted with the Stardust Clear Glitter pen. I also used the new smaller SU! Tag Punch, along with the larger one I already had, and they layer perfectly. Two thumbs up for SU! giving us what we wanted with that slightly smaller punch!
I also completed another layout for Buzz and Bloom! Here is a sneak peek at the finished product. To see the whole layout, visit http://buzzandbloom.typepad.com/buzzandbloom/ !
