PPA 238

I love this pretty color combination from the Pals Paper Arts challenge.  I decided to use Painted Petals with Butterfly Basics (background and small butterfly), and used a sentiment from Express Yourself (retired).

I thought I would have lots of time to stamp during the two snow days we had, but I ended up spending time cooking, trying to fix a printer, and a few other things. I really can't believe how fast the time went by!  I did make a few cards and it was nice having the extra days. 

Between Monday and Tuesday, we got between 31 and 33 inches of snow!  It was unbelievable.  It was a lot less stressful once I found out that my sons didn't have to work on Tuesday.  I usually sit home worrying about them.  The Massachusetts Governor issued a driving ban from midnight Monday through midnight Tuesday.  The post offices were closed along with grocery stores and Dunkin' Donuts!  There wasn't a driving ban in NH, where I live, but most people stayed home.   We will be getting another storm Friday and then again on Monday!  I guess we shouldn't have said it's been an easy winter so far.

Updated to add that this was written for a January 29 post.  Then I realized the correct date for this color combination is today!

Thanks for looking and commenting!

I bet you would rather look at your beautiful card than all that snow!! Good grief!!

Love the beautiful blossoms, but what I really like is the texture that you added against the pink cardstock with the gray stamp image... so cool!!

Thanks for including the PPA color challenge in your stamping fun this week, Michelle... so glad you had extra playtime!!

Lovely! Did you stamp the background in Basic Grey? I love it and the embossed card stock.

Michelle, I love your stamped background and embossed layer! Such a pretty card! I'm so glad your boys got to stay home so you didn't have to worry about them...AND that you got lots of things done! Thanks for playing along with the Pals Paper Arts challenge this week!
