First Storm

Well we have our first snow storm of the season, it started out with sleet, mixed with snow, this morning it is all snow.  One of those days it would be nice to stay in but we have errands that need to get done, hope everything is open. Schools are all closed so there shouldn't be as much traffic as normal.

The big thing for today... it is my daughters birthday.  Talked to her last night and she said not much celebrating will be going on, her day starts at 8:30 and she won't be done until 8pm tonight.  She is attending Duke Divinity school and is going through her finals this week and next, so she has classes and studying to do..  She said finals are a lot harder in Grad school.  She also has to work.

This is the card I sent her.


Believe it or not exercising is what calms her and helps her to relax, so I thought a picture of nice summer time bike ride might bring a smile to her face today while she is under so much stress and tension of finals.

Inkadinkado -- stamp, colored w/markers
Spellbinders -- A2 distressed edges dies
Cosmo Cricket paper
Stampendous-- Birthday assortment stamp set
Queen & co. -- yellow sunshine pearls
This card measures 61/2 x 5

Hope if you are getting snow that you can stay in and enjoy it's beauty, stay safe.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Connie
