It’s snowing in Georgia – AGAIN! Actually it is mostly sleet and ice which is worse for us as we have trees, trees and more trees. The ice tends to cause huge problems with the trees and power lines. Our lights have flickered but we still have power for now. Fingers crossed. A couple of weeks ago we decided to rehabilitate our gas fireplace. We have lived in this house 14 years and never used the fireplace because we didn’t think it was very safe. We shopped around and ended up with new logs and a new door. It was supposed to be installed Friday but they called yesterday and asked could they install it early…. As I said, “Just in the nick of time”. If the power goes off we will have a little heat from our new logs! Aren’t they pretty?

Yesterday was supposed to be Stamping Club. We had to postpone it due to the bad weather.  This is the second time this month we have had to reschedule! Here are some of the projects we will be creating next week (if it doesn’t snow again!). I saw this cute idea for a St. Patrick’s Day pin/card. I decided to CASE it for my club. Thanks to Laura for posting such a great idea. I didn’t have all the same supplies but it turned out super cute anyway. My project is not a card though. It is a candy bar slider and the St. Patty’s Pin all in one! Chocolate is always welcome at stamp club.

Next up is a card that is also a bookmark. This used one of the new stamp sets – Happy Watercolor. I love the poppies! The bookmark slides out from the frame…and the frame has acetate to make it look like a window. Those little touches are what make a handcrafted card special, doncha think???
