i am not feeling well. i haven't been feeling good since last thursday. i have a bad case of gerd and indigestion and bloating, and every time i eat it i feel nauseated. if i do not feel good by monday i think i will be calling my doctor.

last night started snowing and snowed all night. i love looking outside at night time when snows. it looks like the sky illuminated itself with a yellow warming and peaceful glow. here are some pictures from today. i wish i could have captured the glow from last night.

love how it looks after a good snow--it is like winter wonderland until the plow truck comes by, lol.
did you notice the stunning sky...awww!!!


i worked on this card today,

--Sweet Thoughts of You--
4.25 x 4 
pretty, uh?
 the sentiment is from one of the first mps clear stamp sets called
"simply sweet occasions".
it seems i keep going back to that one--so versatile :)

this is the package and if you click on the pic it will take you to the mps site so you can see the variety of stamps she has out and more coming out soon too, yay!!!

 these are old papers i have in my stash from autumn leaves, the tag i made myself with the cricut and so is the clock too and of course...robyn's "sweet occasion stamp set" hmmm---i think i mentioned the stamps before--hehe.

a bit of distressing and some more stamping--oh, and i sew on it too, hehe. 
so very cool--!!
the ribbon was given to me by kristen --one of the designers at the cricut circle.  she makes them herself too.

here you can see how i used two ink colors to create a shadow on the sentiment. i first used brown ink and then stamped it again--a tiny bit off--with black ink, and this is the result.

hope you like it--!!


we will be having our first mps blog hop this friday at 8PM central time 9PM eastern time. it is going to be lots of fun and i know you would like to participate. mark your calendars for this friday, january 14--.

see you later,
love u all.
