ATC's, Cards, & Chit Chat...

Well, it's been over a week since I've posted. I really haven't done too much creative-wise lately and that's what usually prompts me to write.

Gary left for Florida Sunday. The Three Amigos are playing in retirement land. They're riding bikes along the gulf, kayaking, and drinking Land Shark. Sounds like they're having a great time! Meanwhile, I got snowed in! Literally...I had to find someone to plow out the drive! Well, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration. If I would have had to, I could have gotten out. but I didn't have to! It's pretty, and the first day was kind of nice because it was in the low 30's so it was one of those crunchy snows that all the kids love. But then the temp dropped and it's COLD! I took some pictures for a layout. I realized that the one thing about those kind of days is that there's no color! Even the evergreens look gray! So that will be a challenge for papers.

Took another ATC class from Jen at Cord Monday evening. I have another set to put photos on. I am loving these!

Here is one of the ATC's I did for a swap at Bad Girls. I am in the Things With Wings group. When I was at Cord I picked up 2 of the new Cuttlebug folders. I'm loving the new ones that have one shape to cut and then several to emboss the shape. Of course, I got the butterfly!

And here's a card I did for my friend, Lyn. It's a lift of a card done by Beate.

A couple layouts I did for the DDD challenges at Bad Girls:

I finally went through my album and made a folder of all the wedding pictures I haven't scrapped. I was starting to scrap the same picture! But I still have quite a few. May have to go to a 2nd album!

Nothing else going on, I guess. As I said, I've not been too creative lately. And we have a getaway coming up next week-end, so I tend to put things in kits and save them so I have something to work on there.

TFL! Stay warm and come back soon!
