Northern Alabama is experiencing the coldest January since 1940!! Sure glad I didn't miss it!! We have been experiencing snow, ice and single digit temperatures for the past week. School was canceled for two days, which means the daycare centers were also closed! I have been enjoying lots of free time. Our pot of home made vegetable soup has sustained us along with the leftover Christmas cookies!! Unfortunately, our house is a bit chilly! Our homes are not built to keep out cold such as this.
We heat with a system called a "heat pump". Normally, it is adequate; but, again, they are not designed to keep up with single digit temperatures. The good news is, tomorrow will be back to more normal forty degree temperatures. My golfing husband will be back out on the golf course and can abandon the jig saw puzzles that have kept him occupied.
I have been making cards to enter the challenge on the Hero Arts Blog where the theme for this month is friendship and Valentines. This has been a fun challenge for me!
The sunny yellow of this card just warmed me up!!
And I had fun making this vaentine!
I know I will be using these sweet little girl stamps a lot!
