Bella's Snowy House Card

So, another Bella stamp that I've been hoarding in my stash. I think snow is just beautiful...but I hate driving in it! This sketch is a couple weeks old now, but I used Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #86 for this card.

Paper: Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses
Stamps: Stamping Bella, sentiment is Amuse
CTMH Brads, Copics, Crystal Stickles, PTI Buttons, and MS Border Punch


I talked to my dad and unfortunately he has the flu. But I was super excited to hear that Emily started Preschool. She's going to Portland Adventist Elementary, the same private school Brien and I went to. Mrs. Stinson, who was my 4th grade teacher, teaches Kindergarten there now... it's so crazy to think that Emily and I will have had the same teacher, lol. My dad says that Michael cries everyday, because he too wants to go to school. So precious!

Tonight I am very excited to meet Shaela. We've been blog buddies for awhile now and since she's coming into town for CKC, we're gonna go eat dinner at Cheesecake Factory. Since I won't be home...no spoilers on Grey's or Private Practice, okay? Everyone have a fabulous Thursday!
