No Story

Like the weather outside this week, my brain has been in a deep freeze.  No matter how hard I try, I can’t think of a story for you this week.  Well…I thought of a few, but the motivation to write them is not there.  It is frozen.

Our temperature for the last three days has been in the single digits.  Thursday’s temp of 4 degrees broke the 1916 record of 10.  So it has been cold, to say the least.  Today is set to be a little warmer.

An old friend from work stopped by last evening quite unexpectedly.  He dropped off the first five chapters of a book he has been working on and asked me to read it for him and to offer my suggestions for improvement.  So far, after reading the forward, I can’t find anything that needs fixed.  I think it is funny that he would ask me for suggestions since I always considered him better at writing than I am.  But hey,  I feel honored that he asked so I will do my best.

Here’s my card today.  I participated in a shoe box swap a few weeks ago, and one of the other demonstrators there used the stamp set Partridge & Pears and I fell in love with it.  The gold embossing and water coloring was inspired by her; Charlotte.  Hope you like it.

Just a word about the button I used on this card.  I embossed it with gold embossing powder as well as the design of the stamp set.  Just press it into the versa mark pad, add embossing powder, and heat.  You can change the look of a button just like that!

Hope you enjoyed your visit.  Until next time…

Happy Stamping!
