What a Monday that was! It was raining in the morning and then got really cold so all of that froze and then it started snowing again! Hmm… me thinks that someone is trying to tell me to go back to Florida! LOL! I missed the first storm but we didn’t need another one to make up for it! LOL! My office had a delayed opening and I was all over the place. Learning some of the new stuff and taking care of some old stuff. We got out early too because of the snow and my usual 12 minute ride turned into a 40 minute fiasco. The person in the front of the line of cars refused to go over 5 miles an hour! I know it best to err on the side of caution but lets not be silly! When I got home I had some dinner and then spent the better part of the evening crafting the stress of the day away! Oh, I have some more pictures form Leadership to share with you so here we go!
This is the wonderful Claire from the Australian Home Office, I could listen to her speak all day!
Here are the lovely Lisa and I, such a sweet person!
And the last one for today is my friend from the UK Michelle. I think the bag says it all and as a bonus she brought me some Toffee Crisp!! Yay!!
I love getting to meet everyone, especially people that I talk to on the blog! 🙂
Speaking of pictures, mine made it onto Shelli’s blog!! You can see her post here! 🙂
Before I forget here are this week’s Tuesday Specials:
My little bit of craft therapy last night yielded my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…
I did a fun card with a pocket for a gift card on the front! My card today starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Basic Black. The strip of paper is from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. I cut out the gift card holder with the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits from a piece of Vellum Card Stock and adhered it together and to the card with some Vellum Adhesive. The flags across the lower left are also pieces of paper from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the heart form the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to cut out a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper to back the heart that I stamped in Real Red from the Groovy Love Stamp Set. It’s punched out with the Sweetheart Punch and they are both adhered to each other and the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is also from the Groovy Love Set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and cut out with the Banners Framelits. A few dots of 2-Way Glue adhere it to the heart and complete the card. Yes, by far my two favorite things are heat embossing and Vellum, combine them and I’m in heaven! LOL! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Thank you so very much for taking some time to come by and share in my day! Here’s to a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
