I spent most of yesterday being thankful that the huge blizzard that battered so much of the US mostly passed us by. Yes, it snowed, it blowed, it froze, but our pain was much lighter than that of other states. However, it was bitterly cold this morning. I normally walk out to the end of the driveway to get the paper out of the mailbox dressed in my bathrobe, nightgown and birkies. Hasn’t been too bad so far this year, the walk is only about two SUVs long. This morning it was numbing. Light wind which helped but still very cold. I had to walk carefully because there was ice on the drive-way and it hasn’t been that long ago that I fell and broke my wrist. That fall reminded me just how fragile the body can be and I seem to be more cautious in middle age than I was when I was younger. So, yesterday, while the wind howled, I got out my new Magnolia stamps and created this card. Stamps: Magnolia and Papertrey. Copics: N0, C1, BG000, BG01, E35. Chalks on cheeks, hat and scrarf. Ribbon was American Crafts. Pearls are Kaiser Scrapbook. Star is stamped on AC Specialty Paper Gold Foil and cut out. The tag is Spellbinders.
