From My Home to Yours

Well happy SNOWING day- it is still snowing here in Michigan, looks much like this little cottage at my house! I keep thinking it is time to get out the skiis- and it is so Brrrrrrrrrr cold! I sent my son off this morning, worried to death of the slippery roads- Oh yes, for those that have followed the new 16 year old driving saga- he got a car this last week and I have definately gotten gray I think in the last 5 days! Yikes.............

I also wanted you all to take a look at my fundraiser bar over there on the side! I got 2 more packages of card this week from Olga and Jacqueline! I am getting close to my goal of collecting 100 cards from my friends and readers so please, if you have cards laying around think about joining this cause. You can read about my Blog Candy for a Cause HERE - you could win some goodies too!

Oh yea, the card, this is Edwin with his lantern standing outside the little cottage welcoming visitors on a cold evening. I just love this guy- does he not look like the sweetest kid? (probably doesn't ask his mom for gas money, or come in to the house 15 minutes late, ........... ) The DP is from a paper stack that I got a year or so ago so I can not remember what it is, the gold ribbon is from Micheal's dollar bin and you know what- I LOVE it. They had lots of colors, it is wide satin so I tell you go and buy it. I colored Edwin with copics and do you see how I did his sweater so that it has areas that are very light, almost white? Well I have no idea how I did that but I am pleased, yeah- I know that Claudia and Suzanne can do it so expertly but I have not gotten that down pat yet. But pleased with this one all the same.

Thanks for stopping in- hope to see you around and please, leave me a note that you stopped and were here.

Hi Heidi! This card is fabulous! I found your blog through the SCS Blog Comment thread, and decided to give you a TAG on my blog (Blame it on the Mojo, http://mystampinsistahs.blogspot.com/). I hope you don't mind! It can be a fun way to 'meet' new bloggers and become acquainted with other blogs. If you don't feel like playing along, that's perfectly okay. Your blog rocks, and I've enjoyed having the opportunity to check out all of your beautiful creations. Happy Thanksgiving!!! Katherine
