This card is very different from my normal style. It's as close as I ever get to the popular shabby chic style which was the Crazy 4 Challenges theme. But when I saw the SplitCoast Color Challenge of River Rock, Basic Gray and white, then had these new stamps on my desk - it all came together and I am thrilled with the results!
An update on my rant from yesterday. The temperature today is not supposed to break 0 degrees F. That's really cold (and I usually like cold!) Schools all over the Denver metro area are closed because of 40 below wind chills and concern over the kids waiting for busses (that would likely be late due to the ice on the roads!) None of the schools have said anything about tomorrow but tonight is supposed to hit 18 below regular temp - I don't know what the chill factor will be - so I can't imagine they will let the kids hang out at bus stops tomorrow morning! I don't know what I think about this - most of you know what it was like back in our days - uphill both ways in the snow!
FYI - for those that have never been near Colorado, you might be thinking we should be used to this. NOT in the Denver area. When you hear about cold and snow, it is almost always in the mountains. Denver is on the prairie, not in the mountains. In the Denver area, we often golf in January. It may snow for a day or two, but then the sun comes out, the snow melts and it gets into the 70s.
Happy News on this cold day: my warm little coffee cups card was picked as a courtier (runner-up) at colourQ.
