Too late

 I made this card for the Our Daily Bread design anything goes challenge, but I was too late getting it posted.  I hadn't used this stamp set yet and I just love it, I will have to use others in the set soon :)

Our Daily Bread designs -- Bird & Butterfly Labels stamps
Spellbinders -- Labels 18 dies
Martha Stewart -- Swirling lace border punch
Hero Arts -- Birthday message stamp set
Queen & co. -- gem stones
DCWV -- Linen closet paper

I already had the spellbinders dies so it was perfect to frame the images with.

Well we are digging out around here.  I haven't been out on the roads yet but my hubby tells me yesterday the main roads around town were at least cleared it is just the side roads that are still slippery.  The plow pretty much went down the middle of our road so we had a few feet in the road we had to shovel too so that we didn't get stuck leaving our driveway.  Can I tell you that I am already for spring to come. I fell Monday afternoon pushing our car from getting stuck in the road, I was pushing so hard and rocking the car that when he finally was able to get it freed I just went down.  I have arthritis in my knees and I was very lucky that the snow was there because I think it cushioned my fall so it wasn't as bad as it could have been. The older I get the more I don't look forward to the snow, it is beautiful to look out at but when you have to deal with leaving the house, it just brings big headaches.

Hope all those dealing with the snow are able to dig out and stay safe.

Thanks so much for taking the time out to stop by,

Very pretty and serene. Love the sweet bird image Connie. The colors look great. I also like the decorative border.

Oh so lovely Connie! Your colors and details with the edging are fabulous. As for snow, I feel your pain. We received almost 2 feet over last weekend so I know what you mean about wishing for spring! Can't wait, but we still have a long road ahead of us unfortunately I afraid... Hugs xx

This really is a beautiful stamp. So delicately detailed and wonderful that it doesn't have to be colored. I'm going to be keeping my eye out for good solid image stamps. I love the card you made. Very feminine, but also has that natural look that I'm so fond of. I don't envy you the cold and snow. I wouldn't want to have to go out and deal with it every day!

Beautiful! Love the color combo a lot! Snow is beautiful to look at until you have to be out in it! Maybe next time you should be in the car and let him push!! We had ice....again!
