What a Day!

I had to work in the town 15 miles away today.  It was snowing pretty hard & the deck had about an inch as hubby drove me to work (I'm a chicken!)  He dropped me off & headed home.  An hour & 1/2 later he called to say he never made it home but had stopped to eat & was on his way back.  We live 1 mile on the other side of the river & the bridge was closed shortly after we crossed it. Hubby came back & waited for me to finish work. I called it a day at 3pm when the bridge was again open. We drove slowly & boy was I glad to reach home!  It's a gorgeous site as long as you aren't trying to go somewhere!  
So much for the forecast of 1-2 inches. The hospital had 9 inches & we came home to 7 with snow still falling tonight. Hubby had to dig around the driveway lights so they would show.  I celebrated being safe & warm by making a tag card for today's PTI Anniversary contest.  I printed the image twice so I could pop up the flowers which also have Stickles & tiny pearls added.  
I used PTI Mega Mat Stack & embossed it with PTI Linen & Canvas Impression Plate. Added pink twine & an enamel dot plus the white ribbon. Thanks for making it through this long post.

  12. I was reading about your snow and thought, oh, they got snow where they live, then I glanced at your "About" and realized it was the same snow. I live in Portland. :) I'm glad you got home safely and got to make a card. I like the idea of using the Mega Mat Stack. Stay warm!

  14. Snow, slippery roads, icy conditions: not fun in any respect! When our conditions are like this, my car stays parked and my husband drives me. Yours is a gem for transporting you to and from work, and I'm ultra glad you arrived home safe and sound! The photos are beautiful with the lights glimmering from their snowy blankets, but still...enough winter!! Your tag is a wonderful showcase of your 'snuggled inside toasty warm' celebration! Sweet little flowers...we need them to bloom 'in real life'! Hugs to you, dear Greta~c

    WOW - what a day you had. We've had rain last Wednesday through all the weekend. We need the rain here - in the middle of a drought. Had no rain for 51 days.
