Have A Heart - Oldie But A Goodie

Afternoon all - how's the snow situation with you today then?  We had a fair sprinkling of it last night/this morning!  All the mains roads are clear though - except we have to get to the main road first, the estate roads don't get gritted (last year was a nightmare with the big freeze).

I'm supposed to be at the doc's first thing tomorrow morning for repeat blood tests (last ones threw up an odd result) but at this rate I don't think I will be taking the chance of trying to get there.  What is it we get told "do not travel unless your journey is absolutely necessary" - I think the bloods can wait another week don't you?  Lol!

Anyhoo, I am here to show you a card I created for a very dear friend who has a birthday this week who loves mice and I have taken a leaf out of Lisa's (Wishcraft) book to try and use some of my older stamps this year.  I think this one was in the first year of my Penny Black addiction.

Challenges for this card:

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image  Penny Black - Cheesecake Message
Medium  Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment  Hero Arts
Other  Martha Stewart border punches, red card from stash

I'm off downstairs again now to have a little play, on the assumption that the heaters in the conservatory have now got the temperature above the 3.7C that it was earlier!

Hugs, Sxx

Hey - I'm going in tomorrow morning before work for blood work also! But we have no snow so I don't have an excuse not to go, lol! Enjoy your Sunday!

Awww what a sweet card! Love your pics too, though I hope the snow doesn't outstay its welcome LOL!

OK, I'm sort of jealous. See, I actually like some snow and around here, we're used to it, so the roads are pretty well salted and gritted. At least it would look more picturesque than the gray-brown-dirty-dead bleargh that it is right now. Plus my pups love to run around and make doggy angels in it. Not so fun when they do it in the dirt. =P

Anywhoo... lovely simple card for a guy. Hope you go the temps up enough to enjoy your playtime! =)

Chrissy said...

Great card Squirrel. Love the touches of red. Love that image too.

Can't believe the snow you've got. Absolutely nothing here. We are so lucky after the last two winters. Still plenty of time for us to have snow yet!

Jackie said...

Looks like you had a similar amount of snow to us here in the East Midlands. Our main roads weren't gritted though so it was fairly hazardous getting home from work on Saturday night, but get home I did!
Love your card, it's so cute :o)
