You made my day!

Here's a card I made this past weekend. I used one of my Elzybells stamps; these images are so much fun to color! The sentiment is from a set by Hero Arts. The card is pretty simple, but I think that the patterned paper is so busy that a simple layout definitely works here!

How's your week going so far? The kids and I went back to school/work yesterday. It was tough getting up early again, but at the same time it was nice to get back into our routine. On Tuesday afternoon Iain and I went and ordered a pellet stove to try and heat the main level of our house more efficiently. It'll be delivered and installed on Friday. Our winter so far has been very mild snow-wise, but it was soooo cold out on the playground yesterday - especially when the wind kicked up! The kids kept asking, "Mrs. Armstrong, is it time to go in yet?", which is something I don't hear too often when they're busy playing outside :)

Very cute card! Love the textures and the pattern mix!

We must be getting your cold winter, because it has been rough here in the Midwest! We've had way more snow than usual, and it won't go away! lol

I remember playground duty! Winter was fun and yet it was sometimes hard to drag myself out there! It seemed the temps hardly ever affected the kiddos!

Great card! I just realized though... you need to update your blog. You haven't been a SAHM for 5 months now... get with it lady!!! :)
