Today dawned cold with a whopping 18 degrees F, but the skies are blue and the sun is shining. If the roads were not icy and the ground covered in snow, you’d never know we had any kind of winter storm at all! I love how the freshly fallen snow looks after the storm has moved out and the sun shines on it!
I was able to sneak into my craft room again this morning while the boys were busy playing! Another clean and simple card, but that is what I like best these days!
Yesterday, DH and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. Well, if you count snow shoveling as celebrating, that is! We were both just too worn out from the day’s events to even think about doing anything out of the ordinary. I had a card stashed away that I was going to give to him, but decided to make a new one. We’ll celebrate tonight after he gets off work with a nice meal. When you have little ones, many times things are celebrated as a family!
The game pieces and sentiment are from Fresh Squeezed Stamps, a fairly new company with some fun clear stamp sets! I stamped the chess pieces on black cardstock and fussy cut them. That was tricky on black cardstock, but I managed! I popped them up with foam dots and then did the same with a little red heart that I punched out. I added a strip of washi tape, stamping the sentiment above it.
Now it’s off to start thinking about laundry and packing suitcases! We’ll be visiting family over the holiday and I like to start early since I’m packing for five!
