Hello from snowy Nebraska! Last time I posted I said we were going to get a snow storm. Well, we did indeed. We got between 10 and 19 inches of snow depending on where you were. That was on Tuesday and by Wednesday morning we had blizzard winds. It was horrible! Kids were out of school for 3 days and Friday was a little iffy as far as travel was concerned. Hopefully that will be the biggest storm of the season this year. Not complaining of the time off of work but shoveling 4 times was a bit much for this old back. My husband could not go out due to illness but we have a couple of neighbor men who were wonderful and helped us out with their snowblowers. Of course I felt like I should help so I went out with my shovel whenever I could and between times that they were here to keep the driveway and sidewalks clear.
I have not had much time to craft lately but a co-worker is having a birthday this week so I had to make her a card. I used a layout from a card a friend sent me, thanks Connie, and I will be using it again and again. I like the way it came out. I colored my image with my Copic markers and then put Crystal Effects on the balloons to make them shiny.
Until next time, Happy Trails to you...
