Rain, Rain, go away....

Ahhh... winter has arrived on the West Coast. Rain. So difficult to make snowmen outta the stuff! :) Main reason why hubby is SO READY to move off the island & to a sunshine region. Arizona here we come! Who knows, might actually happen. What do they say if you dream long enough & hard enough.... I think I'd melt away, but he loves the heat (time for a vacation I think).
Stamped & colored some images last night, but no actually cards put together. This morning I have my list of to-dos that I'm doing good thus far ignoring. My cup of coffee is nearing its end which of course means I'm then going to have to "work". The usual Mom stuff: attempt the feat of Mt.Washmore (aka the Laundry!!), clean the bathrooms, put away and hide the clutter (company arrives friday - LOL)... not an easy task living in an unfinished house outta boxes. EEK. Then of course the truck is completely outta diesel (pleeeeze help me make it to the gas station!!), and grocery shopping is a must. Funny how every day looks the same. I might attempt a run today, but I did a big 10K on Monday and yesterday did a great 6K walk with my sil, so I may rest my legs and run hard tomorrow. One of those kinda days...
I also have a list of cards I need to make: couple of birthdays coming up, one I missed (*gasp*), Christmas Cards I need to START thinking about, a thank-you or two and of course a couple "just because". So I'll share with you one I did the other day for a friend who moved. I put versamark on the whole front of the colored image and embossed it with Iridescent Ice. Gave it the little something it was missing. Some Stampin' Up! wide grosgrain ribbon, polyshrink *charm*, some prima flowers and a little bling in the center! :) It measures 4.25 square. Fun little size. Now I just need to get it into the mailbox... and the to-do list lengthens :)

Have a splendid Wednesday!
