Paper A La Mode's new Saturday Challenge

Happy Saturday folks.  I guess we aren't ever going to see Spring.  We just got a 24 hour snow storm that dropped about 8-10 inches of snow yesterday. Tomorrow we are in line for 2-4 more.  I wanna move to somewhere warm.  The snow isn't really all that bad.  It's what happens to that snow after it starts to warm up.  Mud, mud, lots of mud and flooding.  My yard is going to look like a pond.

So now that I have finished complaining...again...about the snow, how about I show y'all what I created for PAM's new challenge?

I used this cute little mouse and teacup to make a Thank You card.  I can't wait to get my new order of Neenah card stock.  I ran out and have been printing my images on my ole trust GP card stock. Yeah, I'm a bit spoiled.  After using the Neenah card stock, I don't know how I ever used the GP.  It works fine for card bases, sentiments and layers, but definitely not for coloring and blending.  Come on Neenah..I'm waiting.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  We are going to the Ice Festival in the next little town over. It's a wonderful thing.  There are tons and tons of ice sculptures all around the town.  This year's theme is "Rock and Roll".  I can't wait to see the sculptures.  I am going to take lots and lots of pics, so I will upload some of them here.  After that, I'm going to Walmart for a new dog collar, leash, bowl and nappy.  Guess why?  Yep, that's right.  I'm getting a new puppy.  I can't wait.  His name is going to be Zorro and he's a three months old Black Lab/Rottie/Russet Retriever mix and he's so sweet and good with kids.  He has a little white thumbprint mark on his chest.  He's gonna be a big one too.  He is Kierstynne's Valentine's Day present..just a day late.
