And the high today is...

Mid 70's. It's almost 6pm on a Tuesday and the temp is 72. I know - most of you are fffrreeezing. But listen to this. The high for Wednesday will be 44, and the low Wed night is 29. See the huge shift in temperatures? Enough to drive one a bit wacky. I finally hit the mall today and picked up winter clothing. Hooray for sale racks. I got just a few things that I can layer, but at least I'll be warm when the temps take a drastic plunge. I just hate buying winter clothing because we rarely EVER need it (but when your existing 'winter' items are outdated.....).

I went to a crop this weekend. I was for most of Friday and Saturday. Want to know what I got done? 4 cards and 1 one-page layout. period. that's all. LOL. Maybe I was a bit too busy talking or looking for something that I thought I brought but didn't. Or talking.

Here are 3 of my cards. The fourth one was actually for someone and never made it home.

This uses some Basic Grey paper (the yellow) and some scraps of Dream Street's new Lullaby papers. Martha Stewart border punch (again). I actually headed to Michael's Friday with my coupon to buy another punch, and low and behold, the store was nearly empty including the Martha aisle. But the GOOD news is that Sunday one of those new Michael's stores will be opening (they have a name for it - anyone remember?) I can't wait. So I'll have a new border punch soon. smile

This one uses Dream Street's new Lullaby collection. The rub on is from Scenic Route.

More of my Stampin' Up! creations. I have really enjoyed playing with their papers and embellishments in addition to the stamps. This stamp is from one of the new hostess stamp sets called "A Little Something". They just came out with the new spring catalog and oh my! it has some awesome things in it. You can purchase a catalog by contacting me, or take advantage of the special from February 1- April 30 With any online purchase, you will receive a free Spring 09 catalog. You can shop at my store any time day or night HERE. Remember, starting Sunday, free catty for online orders.

Oh- and I've had a couple of questions about the "Window" layout in my previous post. The frame is actually patterned paper from the Lullaby collection. It's called "Remember This" and you can see it here.

I can't wait to hear more about all the new CHA products that are coming out and what everyone's favorites are. If you are like me, you've been scouting some of the boards for pics and reports. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
