Stay Warm!!


sweater & scarf

Baby it’s cold outside!!  Parts of Austin and surrounding areas got snow flurries yesterday but I don’t think ANY made it us (boo).  I holed myself up in my room yesterday and crocheted to my heart’s content since I hadn’t done it in a while.  It was nice. 

Today I have a fun blue & brown card using Basic Grey Offbeat papers and the new GKD set Warm & Wonderful to share with you.  I love the sentiment in this set Consider yourself {hugged} it’s just great because when you send a card to some one you love/care about, isn’t it like you’re sending them a hug in the mail?  For me it is…I used the new Ocean Mist blue and Chocolate Kiss Pure Luxury c/s by Gina K.  It’s such a fabulous combination, wouldn’t you agree?! 

cheryl blog award Next, I want to share a blog award I got from the very lovely & talented Cheryl and need to share some random stuff about me!   Thank you, Cheryl!!

One of the rules of this award is to list 7 random things about yourself:

1) I love to make things besides cards: I learned to crochet when I was 9 and haven’t stopped since!
2) I love to cook and bake; I’m making Peanut Butter & Chocolate Balls today (imagine a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup – yum!)  Soon I will share some photos and my experience meeting PW (The Pioneer Woman)
3) I don’t really like to shop unless it’s stuff for our new home that we’re building! 
4) I love cats & dogs!  We have 1 dog and 2 cats and plan to have more when we move! 
5) I love watching HGTV
6) I love Marie Callender’s Potato Cheese Soup – it’s a lot of work but oh so good! 
7) I love watching Food Network! 

The other rule is to pass this award on to 7 other kreativ-bloggers, and here they are, in no particular order:

1) Karen “Saucy” Motz
2) Melissa Shultz
3) Sankari Wegman
4) Randi Barrett
5) Alex Maldonado
6) Melissa Sauls
7) Rachel Sztonyk

I have to go; we’re heading out to all you can eat pancakes at Applebee’s to support a local middle school’s band (a neighbor boy came by a few weeks to sell us tickets and just couldn’t resist, especially when he greeted me at the door saying, “Do you like pancakes?” what a line!  I love pancakes anyway so I’m looking forward to it, just not necessarily to the LOW temps outside!
