Let It Snow...


...but not here in Chicago, again. We just had 5 inches of snow yesterday and tomorrow we are in for an ice storm and then more snow over the weekend. Lovely, huh?! Anyway, this is my last Christmas card I made. And I just received 4 new sets of stamps from MFT that I ordered and I am anxious to get started with them. This is going to be a very busy weekend with my family Christmas party and several of my brothers and sisters flying in from all over, so I don't think there will be any stamping going on. School is out on Friday for two weeks and all I want to do is stamp, crazy, isn't it?!
Anyway, as many of you have already heard, one of our fellow bloggers and unbelievable stampers has passed away suddenly. Joanne, over at My Adventures in Cardmaking, passed away last Friday night. She is the one who introduced me to card making many years ago. The first class I went to with her as the consultant I kept telling myself I wasn't going to start stamping too. But low and behold she had us do the cutest fish card and I couldn't resist so I ordered my first set and it's been love ever since. Joanne was a part of our Stampin Diva group and every time we got together we laughed so hard and had a great time. We are sooooo going to miss her and her talent. I am still in shock every time I think of her. So, if you have an extra minute, please say a prayer for her family during this difficult time, especially since it's the holidays. I know they would really appreciate it and so would Joanne.
Thanks for stopping by and have a good weekend!
