It is supposed to be winter and very cold like these penguins but so far it has been a very mild winter here in Nebraska. We have only had one snow and it was just a little. Yesterday and today we have had the sprinklers going to try to get some moisture into the ground and into our trees and bushes. It is beginning to get a bit colder now. Today it is just 44 degrees but on Thursday it was 66 degrees IN January IN Nebraska. My little Lucy and I walked when I got home from work until it get really dark. It was just too nice to waste the time inside. Later this week our weathermen are saying it will be in the 20's for highs. That is more like it and even now it should be zero or minus zero. I am not complaining. The 20's are going to be darn cold for us.
My card today was colored with Copics. Did you know they are coming out with 12 new colors in February? I have mine on order, do you? The snowflake is from K and Co. and the paper is from My Mind's Eye and called 12 Days of Christmas. I don't think you can see the glitter on the white part of the hat and the pom pom. Oh and I used cheesecloth for the first time. Next time I will let it flop around more. I think I used too much glue on it.
I am reading a great book called Night Road by Kristin Hannah. You can read about it on Amazon and decide if it is one you would like.
Until next time, Happy Trails to you....
