I Lied

I didn't mean to....really.  I just didn't have time to post my card yesterday.  It was too much fun playing with my kids.  So I hope you forgive me.  I made a card for the CPS sketch this week.  PTI is the sponsor and can I just say, "Whoa!"  So much going on over at PTI.  Big, great changes.  Love it.  I would totally love to win some PTI money!  I also made this card with a slew of other challenges in mind.

It's all about love on the challenge blogs this week.  I'm STILL working on Valentines.  They will probably be late getting to my family.  Oh well, that's how my family is usually...LATE!  It's the thought, right?

So this card is for: CPS, The Pink Elelphant, Die Cuts R Us, Crazy 4 Challenges, Creative Card Crew, Pile It On,  Charizma Cards, and Paper Crafts February Gallery.

They all have something to do with LOVE...batting my eyelashes)

This card uses the glittered hearts my son and I made for his Valentines.  I had to steal one...don't tell.  It's made from a cereal box and my spellbinder heart dies.  I was sooo inspired by that EBTKS challenge  last week.  I don't think I shall ever buy a heart chipboard again.  You know the great thing about using cereal boxes...besides the recycling?  They are also less bulky and easier to mail!  Woohoo!

So did you get any snow yesterday?  We have about 11 inches now.  My son and I played out in the snow and then the whole family went sledding.  It was a blast!  The worse part of that hill we went on....GOING BACK UP!  Oai!  My thighs are hurting today:)

I put on my facebook page yesterday that I thought that snow days are God's way of saying, "Slow down and enjoy the view!"  We had a great time just being together on our snow day yesterday.  Here are a few pics of our "view."




You know it's bad when you have to shovel your truck:)

This last one is of my hottie hubby.  He's lost 20lbs in the last two months.  I'm so proud of him!
Enjoy the view today!

All the years I worked for the schools, I said the same thing. I felt like if we had a snow day, it was the gift of a whole day from God himself. Those are the days you have absolutley nothing planned except to go to school or work, and suddenly you are free! Anyway, LOVE that card! Gotta try the cereal box trick! Hope you got your cocoa all cleaned up! DH looks like a real sweetie! Thanks for giving us such a 'nice view' tonight! lol...Hugs!!!

Fabulous pictures. These will make some great memories in your scrapbook and I agree with you about the snow being time to slow down. Being with family is the best times in the world in our home.
