Enough of Winter!

Good Morning all. Well I do hope you have been warm and safe.  Here in RI it is freezing. My pipes froze up earlier this week, and it is a good thing we have a maintenance  guy here because it cost me all of 40 dollars for him to shovel and get a bullet under my house to defrost my pipes. Thank you Jesus. :). We will be having a heat wave for 2 days 30 degrees and then back to 0 tempts next week.  I have had enough of Winter!! I will be so grateful for Spring..

I made this card for Our Daily Bread color inspiration.





This stamp is from ODB, Life is a gift. I gold embossed it twice.

Then I mad this for the House Mouse Challenge, Friends.

This stamp is from House Mouse, Wheel Bearrow..  Yes I know the pearls are not straight, It is on purpose :).




Well that is it for me today, You all have a blessed week.

Amen, Sistah! Ready for this snow to stop! We have a half inch of ice topped with new snow, on top of what was left of 11" of snow! Nothing like you up north, but still...enough! Loving this sweet card, Becky! It's so prett. I don't know why I don't create more often with oranges. They are so beautiful on this card! Hugs...

How appropriate "Life is a gift". That would be a perfect sentiment and the card would be excellent with this beautiful card. Love the house mouse card as well. Cute connection with the image and the sentiment. Love t. - Jim

I love the little bear card....Bet you wish that was you in the wheelbarrow getting your plants ready for spring. It was in the 40's here in Orlando this week...You would have thought it was 40 below zero! Everyone was wearing boots, hats. and mittens and the stores and roads were empty....Nope no one was venturing out in 40 degree weather lol!! You folks have had an AWFUL winter!

Oh Becky, you have had a terrible winter in Rhode Island. The cold temps and high winds are the worst.

Thanks for sharing this little bit of Spring. What an adorable HM image and card.

What lovely cards you created and that surely is something we can do on a cold winter day. So far my pipes have been okay. I am glad you got defrosted too. We have to remember that spring is coming we hope soon! In the meantime, stay warm and God bless you.

Oh, dear Becky, I am so glad to hear how God provided the needed worker to help keep your pipes from bursting...praise Him! Yes, you must truly be "over" this dreadful winter! I love your cards, and it's always such a joy to come by and visit with you, sweet friend! You are an inspiration both in your card making and sharing your deep faith! Praise God! Warm hugs, sweet friend!
