Friday the temperature said 71 degrees, but I didn't believe it. The wind was so fierce and had such a chill to it that I had to shut the place up.
The clouds blew in by Friday night and we dropped into the 40s. We had a chilly rain that paused for hours on Saturday.
I loved these clouds, tho, that were visibly on the move.
I've been working on the 50 birthday cards...burning up the Cuttlebug--hehe!
Cut the darker blue scalloped square. Ran the lighter blue cardstock thru a striped embossing folder and then ran it thru again to cut it into a crisp square.
Ooops! I guess this was a little blurry, sorry. I stamped these cupcakes onto a piece of white cardstock. Will use the square die below to cut them out after I have decided how to color and decorate them.
So, that's what I've been up to the last few days.
This is the current project I'll be working on until they are done. :)
I actually slept during the night last night!! Tada!
And woke up to this.
I just took these photos...
...of the snow.
Yup! A dusting of snow. It's 28 degrees right now as I speak. There's got to be ice, too, because it rained first. Tomorrow is supposed to be back in the 50s. Crazy weather. Only recently began taking down all the sandbag dikes up here. We even had a little Minnesota earthquake about 90 miles east of us Friday morning!? But all this is nothing compared to the recent devastation in the southern states with the tornadoes and high winds--many lives lost and whole towns destroyed. And then there's Japan...and Australia before that...and the list goes on.
Sending light, love, and prayers.
Be safe, everyone.
