 Last weekend snow and sub-zero temperatures; this weekend rain. It was a good time (for DH) to get the outside decorations down. No one was attempting that last week with the cold weather. The Christmas tree came down today along with all the other little trees throughout the house. Our decorations typically doesn't get taken down until the second week of January because of DH's birthday.

Yesterday four of us girls hit the road for a day of fun and shopping. We were celebrating a belated birthday that started out with lunch and then a trip to the winery for a bit of wine tasting. A couple of tastings later we were back on the road hunting for bargains and boy did we find some wonderful after Christmas buys. There is nothing better than spending the day with such fun wonderful people. I had fixed up little goodie bags for everyone that included what every girl loves- chocolates and coupons. We finally reached home 8 hours later and my legs sure felt it, but in a good way!

Today's card is using all Stampin'Up products. The stamp sets are Flowering Flourishes and From My Heart. The card stock and ink are Crumb Cake and Black. I used the Square Lattice and Petals-a-Plenty embossing folders. The dies are the Framelits Window Frame and Apothecary Accents. The scallop was cut out using the Edglits Adorning Accents and of course it wouldn't be complete without the bling. There is something sophisticated about this color combo.

I have a different New Year's resolution which is to use some of the stamp sets that get pushed to the back of the shelf. I wanted to do this for a couple of reasons. One is because it is a shame to have them and not use them. Second is to remember what I already have so I don't buy it again or something similar to it. And third- so I'm not making the same kinds of cards over and over. We'll see what the year brings.
~have fun and enjoy!
