The Ice is Going

 Thankfully the ice is beginning to melt. My van was encased in an armor  of  silvery ice last night and everything was very still here..  This morning it all has started melting so we will be free to come and go.

Last night I made a couple of cards but I also just piddled with my art stuff. It is a great thing to do.  I looked at papers and opened lots of boxes with no idea what I would find inside.  It was peaceful and inspiring and is good thing for any crafter to do once in awhile.

I am revamping my blog but cannot get things to work right. I can't make the left  side of the background move over closer to the center and I can't get the blog title to be in the right space. That is not soothing at all but  I will work on it more later.

Here is my card for the 3-2-1 Challenge over at CDAC.  The image is by Priscilla Styles and she  has some nice ones so check her out. The challenge is to make a card with:
 1 Flower  2 design papes  3 Bling
There are 3 rhinestones on the butterfly.

This card is made for a special little boy who is undergoing Chemo and loves to get mail. Yes it is the same little owl  stamp and paper from their new Happy Days Paper pack at Paperwishes/Hot Off the Press that I just love. I am not usually a big fan of bright colors but this pack is just perfect!. Plus all the papers are double sided.

Well hope everyone has a great and warm weekend. Stay away from ice!
