Much Love

It's been bitter cold here....
frosty cold mornings.....
the roads are icy and snow covered....
I have pretty much stayed close to home
and not ventured out.....
so what better time to stay warm...
spending my time in my creative room....
 
I have been getting alot done....
I made this card for the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs challenge blog
the theme this week is "sweethearts"
 
 
I used  Sophia's Heart for the background......I glue them down with glue and seal
it dries clear, and it sticks...fast!!
the flowers were made with a die I just received and a new one from CHA
called Cutie Fringe 2
 
 
Cheery Lynn has released 4 of these...and I now wish I had them all
they are so easy to use...I whipped these 3 flowers up in minutes...
it took me longer to decide what paper to use....
the leaves underneath are Stacker Flowers #1 Leaf
the sentiment is a $1 one from Michaels
 
Next Thursday I have some exciting news (for me) to share.....
that's all I am saying for now..
you will have to stop back and see.....
 
 
Also wanted to share my frosty morning sunrise I took a few minutes ago
it is so pretty...wish you could see all the snow on the trees...we got about another 6" 
of the fluffy white stuff last night...and more to come.....

Oh Diane this card is awesome and I love those flowers! I really need to take the time and just make up some flowers so I have them when I want them for a project. These are adorable!
OH >>> EXCITING NEWS >>> CAN'T WAIT!! LOVE the sunrise photo ... GORGEOUS!
Yes, I wish we lived close enough to craft together ... what a great time we would have! {sigh} But I guess we'll just have to wait until we can link up at Joan's!
In the meantime ... thanks for staying in touch, leaving me such kind comments and for inspiring me!
Try to stay warm ... brrrr ... I'm ready for spring!
