Not fit for beast.....

Ok, I was complaining about the 8 and 9 degree temps. WELL....this morning I woke up and looked at the thermometer. I thought it said 18 degrees. My hubby said it wasn't possible, it must be 18 below. It wasn't 18 below, it was -8. I guess I should have put my glasses on. It got up to a balmy -5 by the time I got to work. I don't know how other parts of the country are dealing with the 40 below temps!! It is NASTY out there.

I started to make my twins card last night but then I realized it was Thurs. and my shows were on (Grey's, Private Practice) so I wrapped it up until this weekend. I'm having a hard time with a design made for two. I'm so used to the threes so I may have to look through some sketches or put a sentiment on the third block. I cut the babies out with my rectangle Nesties. If I like it enough, I'll post this weekend. Have a great one!

Oh, I guess I can post this sympathy for today. I felt like I needed something on the lower left but wanted to keep it simple since it is a sympathy. What do you think? Should I add something there? I used a Whipper Snapper bucket stamp, Prismas/Gamsol, SU Wild Wasabi and Perfect Plum (I think?) and dp, Labels #1 Nesties. I forget who makes the sentiment. The ribbon is May Arts.

Now that is cold!!! Don't think my thinned out blood could handle that kind of weather anymore- hopefully the flowers on the card made you in a warmer mood on the inside at least :)
