Ice Storm

Wow its good to have electricity. I have not posted due to we were hit with a ice storm. I havent had electricity since Tuesday and just came on today. I am so happy! Tonight its getting down to 0-5 degrees. I believe we had about 4 inches of ice and about 9 inches of snow. We had a tree that fell across our driveway. You could hear trees falling all around me. Very scary sounding. Wednesday was a level 3 snow emergency, which means no one is allowed on the roads unless you are emergency personnel. Yesterday and today we were on level 2. Its getting better. I have heard another storm is coming in possible Monday or Tuesday. I took a few pictures early Wednesday that I wanted to share. I took these all from my front yard. We hate to see the pine trees get this bad, we have lost a few. You can see some power lines in the one photo and this is what it still looks like today.

I hoping to get a few household chores down and would be so great to get to be able to create some cards this weekend. Hoping that the electricity stays on. Thanks for stopping by.
Stay warm.

Inkadinkado ~ Leprechaun ~ Happy St. Patrick's Day Handmade Card


Happy Sunday! Isn't this little guy cute? I thought I would create a Happy St. Patrick's Day card. I happened to have this St. Patricks Day paper left over from last year. ok now for details and supplies that I used. I created the card 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". I used light green and green cardstocks. St. Patricks Day paper is from Reminisce and is called "Run of Luck" I love this paper is sort has a shine shimmery look to it. I added light green and green ribbons. I handstamped and embossed in hunter green ink "Happy St. Patrick's Day". Creating hearts you can form into a clover. So I added two clovers. I also used nestabilities dies. The leprechcaun is colored with copic markers and then embossed. Embossing after you have colored your image makes the image a littler darker, bring out the colors more.

Check back tomorrow and I will have my design for one of Victoria Case's new digital stamps. Victoria is releasing new digital stamps tomorrow, January 26th. If you havent tried digital stamps, you must! You simply just purchase, download, print, color and create.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
