Wintry Wednesday

Our day started out with snow but has unfortunately turned to rain. :-( It was pretty early this morning as it fell silently on the community making a thin blanket of white wonder. Now it is melted and we have a damp ground with overcast skies.
I hope everyone had a fabulous Valentine's Day. It's always nice when it falls on weekend. I shared it with Simon and the kids. Some may think it's not so romantic but Simon and I had a few days away in Mexico sans kids. We did a family night which was not as successful as we had planned trying to get a movie to watch but the kids were busy on the Wii while Simon and I tried frantically to get a movie downloaded and ripped before midnight. We failed to get it on the big screen so Simon and I snuggled together to watch via the laptop. :-) Also watched some Star-ving episodes. We were cracking up. I think Simon might be hooked. It's not appropriate for younger audience so be forewarned if you check it out. It pushes the envelopes and shreds it as they say.
:-)
Now it is already Wednesday! A few things to share today.
First new sketch for 2S4Y this week. I used a Shortcutz clear card for the base and some new papers my wonderful friend Pam sent me by SEI! She sent me this great SEI Lovebirds kit packed with glittered and lace papers, die cuts, ribbons, and more. Thank you Pam! On this card I used the Lovebirds paper, Making Memories ribbon, Hot Hues scallop bird image, not sure about the rub on-s, and Kaiser Craft rhinestones.

This next card is for Card Patterns.

I used Making Memories Love Notes paper, Melissa Frances chipboard heart, Karen Foster rub-on,red rhinestones, and a gold key charm.
The last card I want to share is for CPS new sketch. There are so many creative ideas for this sketch by the fabulous DT. I had to try it once viewing their work. check out the other cards made by participants when you visit. Incredible examples.

Close up:

Mine uses Making Memories (I know, again?) Sabrina and Love Notes lines. I used a transparency on top to show the pattern of the gorgeous Love Notes floral paper, American Crafts rub-on's, Darice rhinestones, Jo-Ann's ribbon, and Making Memories flowers and brads.
Thank you for coming by. I always appreciate visits and if you have read thus far, even better. I know it's a long post. Wishing you a glorious Wednesday! Thank you!
