Juliet made me do it ....

Juliet suggested I find inspiration at the Zindorf blog, and this is the card I am choosing to inspire me. Sometimes I need a good friend to kick my muse in the pants to get me going. One of the driving forces in choosing this card is the fact that I don't know where my brayer is ! I also would have liked to add gold brads ... but you can guess where my brad collection is located - ( where current temperature is 9 degrees, gosh I am glad to be here and not there.)

Juliet gave a good explanation of our challenge at her blog so I will direct you there if you want to see her card and her explanation.

Our weatherman said SNOW ... he never says snow. It doesn't snow here! They rescued 150 sea turtles, apparently when they get cold they just float to the surface and wait to be picked up - as in 150 pounds per turtle ... the manatees aren't doing so well. My orange tree is looking sad.

Update ...
Numerous surface observations and weather spotters continue to
report rain mixing with light sleet and snow flurries across an area
north of a line from Melbourne to Kenansville. Intermittent periods
of a rain...sleet...and snow flurries with little to no accumulation
are forecasted to continue across this same area through mid

Teapot tuesday and a color challenge

I finally tried a color challenge over at splitcoast. I was halfway into the card when I realized my SU markers are in Michigan and I happen to be in Florida. I did my best with the copics but they look a bit blotchy to me.
Got out my Elemental Doodles Teapot - I love that little image! Then I realized I left ALL of my clear blocks for clear stamps ... in Michigan.
Duhhh what was I thinking!

Patchwork heart

This was kind of fun. I made the patchwork first then cut out the heart.

Featured stamper Ann

Wish Mike were back at work, because I found a bunch of cards to case at the Splitcoast featured stamper gallery that I am thinking of using for inspiration.
The first one was inspired by this ... the next one inspired here ...
The grid one was inspired by this card.
