The Language of Friendship

Well, I have got to say there is never a dull moment in the state of Iowa especially when it comes to the weather.  So far today, we've had rain, hail, sleet, thunder, snow and now the wind is picking up so it can blow it all around!  I was hoping the thunder snow would miss us since that's when the heaviest snow fall happens.  I'm not sure it's over yet, so I don't know how much snow has fallen.  Doesn't look like much right now but it looks to be raining again and that's not good.  As the temperatures drop, everything is going to get slick.

Today was a great day to spend in the craft studio.  I had one more challenge I wanted to get in before it closes.  It's the one over at Time Out Challenges.  The challenge was to create a "Love and/or Friendship" project.  I combined hearts for love and the great sentiment of Thoreau's for friendship.  Here's how it turned out.  I love the muted heart patterned paper.  You can check out the challenge by clicking HERE.

Stamp Set:  Language of Friendship - retired (Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Old Olive (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Very Vanilla, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple (Stampin' Up!), Homespun Patterned Paper (Simple Stores); Accessories & Tools:  Decorative Label Punch, Small Heart Punch, 3/8" Old Olive Striped Organdy Ribbon - retired and Stampin' Dimensionals (Stampin' Up!), Rhinestones

Okay, I promise that I am done posting for today.  I'm going to go put my feet up and watch a movie or a wee bit of TV.  It's also time for my afternoon snack.  Life is good even when we are under a blizzard warning!

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
