CTD#274- This Too Shall Pass....

Hey- Happy Wednesday and... snow/deep freeze. We set a record cold here 7 degrees this am. Was telling my family last night I was jealous of the day off today {northern IN} and whining about the cold {have lived in NC a long time!}.... they called me a "WIMP"... where's the love?!?

 
How's that pic for a little warm weather dreaming!!

I did a scrappy card this week!!Added a little bit of this and that!! The sentiment is from  a "new to me" Kelly Purkey set 'I Like You" -loving the sentiments in this set... there is a perfect sentiment for my lil' sis in there- to be used at another time! Click on the pic for a larger-clearer version of the sentiment. The sketch is Cardabilities, added some Studio Calico wood pieces and then got carried away... spritzed with Heidi Swapp gold mist, added some sequins and a twine bow. Scrappy indeed :-)
