A surprise for me and a new card sketch site

Last night consisted of howling winds which kept DD and I up as we listened to the house shake and rattle. I laid there fretting that shingles, siding, etc. were flying off which made me a little too anxious to sleep. I went to inspect today for visible damage, but did not see any evidence while walking around the house. Fingers crossed. While outside a delivery man from my favorite florist pulled up. He must have thought I was out of my mind gazing upon my house in the front yard. Oh well. He hand delivered to me a beautiful vase of red and white flowers from my love for Valentine's Day. A little early but that's how Simon is. He never wants to be late anywhere (which is hard since I am always late)so I imagine he anticipated if today's delivery was missed, then it would be tomorrow before I received them. Adding further TMI, I am going to his place this weekend so a Saturday delivery would be difficult trying to time. I am glad he did because this way I have two days to enjoy them. I snapped a few photos of the arrangement to share with all. :-) Thank you honey! They are beautiful!





Finally, there is a new card sketch blog, Card Positions with weekly challenges. I am happy to see a card blog and wish them the best! Check out the DT's examples from this week's sketch, amazing! There is much interest and many people are joining in! Including myself, here's my card from the very first sketch.

I used supplies from The Shaker Box's card kit for February plus MME bling, Amy Butler die cut and stamp. Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog! I really appreciate your interest! Have a great Thursday!
