Simple card

Here is a simple card I made last week with a tree stamp. I really liked the paper and have had it in my stash for a long time, so it's time to use it up! I made a few others that were similar, but sent those out to friends! I can never seem to build much of a stash up!

I'm working on the first round of the Circle Journal I'm participating in with my great friends from Seasoned CJ Survivors. Originally it was suppose to be my round, however I gladly gave it up to Rocio who was much more on top of sending out the supplies than I was! I'm really glad for her! I have to journal 10 different things about ME - one on each 4x6 cards. I didn't have much of a problem coming up with the 10 things; I am however having trouble trying to figure out HOW to journal them and make it look like something! I'm sure it will click at some point! I hope soon... I'm getting frustrated!

It's been a long tiring week but I'm really looking forward to skiing or possibly snow shoeing this coming weekend! We got jipped out of it last weekend when our water pipe burst in the basement for the 3rd time in just a few months! Hopefully we've fixed it so that it doesn't happen again but we still have to complete the repair come Spring.

Have a great weekend!

Another Birthday

We're celebrating yet another birthday today... Dan celebrated his day by skiing by himself! He didn't have to wait for anyone; didn't have to listen to anyone complain; and he had a fantastic day! He was home in plenty of time for a nice lobster ravioli dinner and soon we will be off for ice cream at our NEW Baskin Robbins!! (Now if only we could get a Dunkin' Donuts!)

Colorado is now in another deep freeze and we're not looking forward to some cold days ahead. Fortunately I will be getting a ride to the office the next few days and won't have to freeze on a bus corner. This is the first week of my new schedule and so far, it's OK. No more bus from Castle Rock, instead I have to rely on my chauffeur's! I'm not thrilled, but what can you do?!

I made this card by embossing the guitar and thought I might copy it for a card swap. I haven't done one of those in a long time. I'm looking for a new challenge again!!! Any suggestions?
