Glad to have made it!

We fared better than our neighbors in the Dallas area, but
MAN, the weather last night gave me more than one grey hair @@
Not. Fun.  
Then around 10:30, there was an enormous clap of thunder and burst of lightening close by...really close by. 
I unplugged all of the electronics and went to bed!
Little did we know that what we had heard struck a house just down the road from us.
Our friends heard about a house fire on the scanner, jumped from the bed, put on their clothes 
and headed our way.  From the description, it sounded like our place.  I wondered why someone was 
sitting at the end of our drive with their lights on bright around 11:00 LOL
But by the afternoon today, it was all blue skies and sunshine once again.
Oh what a difference a day makes :)
I'd like to personally thank the Good Lord...I know he got tired of hearing from me last night hehe

As I mentioned's
And today featured a buffet of wonderful Easter cards!
Here's a peek at mine

 For the border, I used a fun combination of paper covered brad daddies and assorted buttons.
Instead of using watercolors on the stamped image, I went for the colored pencils.
I'm going to give it to my mom on Easter...I think she'll love it :)
--------------------------------------------------------------------'s I Heart Ippity time!
See you then


  1. This is such a cuet card. Amazing!

  2. Glad that you are safe, I love this... Especially the buttons

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
