Tuesday, January 18. 2010

Today my baby brother turned 50. I remember the day he was born - I stayed at my Aunt Charlotte's while they went to the hospital. Gee time flies.

Cold here in Wisconsin - YUCK - and it is suppose to get colder. My snow is all shoeveled and blowed due to the kindness of neighbors. I was not looking forward to shoveling the end of the driveway - or finish it - I shoveled enough to get my car out this morning. If someone could figure out a way to let it snow, so it would not snow on roads, driveways, sidewalks - I could be happy with that.

Tonight's card is to send to my daughter and husband - since I can't be there to give them a hug - I will send them one in the mail. I bought this stamp for Operation Write Home - I know it will get lots of use for cards for OWH. On this card I paper pieced the word HUG - I really like how it turned out. I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop. I had this new paper I had to use it. I hope my daughter forgives me because it does have some pinkish color on it - but I think it is more coral.

Everyone enjoy your evening - I have something good in the oven cooking so looking forward to enjoying my share. I made enough to freeze for the kids.

Great card. The color is terrific. Looks more coral than pink to me too.
