I want a cute Reindeer Hat.....

Coffee of the Day - Maple Pecan

Happy happy Saturday! guess what? we are supposed to have SNOW today!!!! woooo hooooo! not only do I have my fam home for the weekend (well, they are out at Camp working a big youth retreat until tomorrow, but they are HERE in the area!!), but snow is coming! yeeehaw! I am so excited! :) I know many of you don't share my enthusiasm for the white stuff, but I really do love the snow. so just send all of yours my way, and we will all be happy!

also, everyone loved their Halloween candy treat boxes that have posted. Mick, as you know, received his last week and his candy is completely gone. I told him that I would load him up on more before he and his roomie return to school tomorrow. but even the guys took the time to look the boxes over before diving into the candy. they loved the little mummies best, though. we are fans of the undead for some whacked out reason! guess that explains why Zombieland is one of our all-time fave movies ever!

anyhow, I want to show you my card for today. I had entered it into the WCMD contest over at Paper Crafts mag, but it didn't win. the plus side is that it will be sent to a soldier stationed overseas to send back home for the holidays, so someone will hopefully enjoy it. I liked it though! :) and I'm very happy for the people who did win! such talent!

Papers are Basic Grey Figgy Pudding, except for paper pieced reindeer hat, which is Echo Park. cutie pie image is A Day for Daisies. I would love to have a hat like this, but it might look a bit funny on an old lady like me..... oh well. buttons are vintage, as is the lace. rub-on senti is SU!. added a bit of faux stitching and polka dots with my white gel pen.

We do not want snow so you can have ours, but we aren't forcasted to get any yet. We love the undead too! My DH has dreams about an apocalypse all the time and when we are driving around in the country, he always points out which houses would be ideal during a zombie outbreak. LOL

Love your card! I'm feeling the neutral colors right now too.

So pretty and such an unusual image too! I've had to buy more halloween sweets as we've eaten the ones we were saving for the trick or treaters!! I'm so bad!!

Lol, no snow in Michigan but I'm happy about that, I hate to see all the beautiful trees down in the snow hit states, such a shame. Besides, Winter will be here soon enough anyway!! Love the card, really soft colours and such a sweet image, I too like that hat!!
