Blustery Friday!!

Wow, not sure if you are all keeping up with the weather in the past 24 hours here in central Alberta, but we've had quite a winter go-round! The main highway, Queen Elizabeth 2, was shut down from Ponoka to Airdrie last night due to numerous vehicles in the ditches and collisions due to the blowing snow and low visibility. I came home from Edmonton around 6:30 and it was NASTY! I had to stop a few times right in the middle of my lane on the highway cuz I could NOT tell where I was driving!! I hate driving in stuff like that when I have my kids with me....I was a bit stressed by the time I got home let me tell ya!! But...we made it home safe and sound and I had a tea, put my warm, fuzzy slippers on and crocheted on the couch under my warm afghan!!!

This morning it's windy, but no more snow has fallen. DH had to leave for about a 2 hour drive north to a job, so I got up with him around 5 and helped him get out the door, threw on the coffee pot, got dressed in my warm winter duds and got to work finding some challenges! Julia, over at Little Paper Shop, came up with a great sketch this week and Melissa and I were in Red Deer last week and popped in to see her! I bought some more of her wonderful stamps and decided that I just *HAD* to ink up this cutie!!!

I then needed some colors....well, given the image I chose, I needed some softer, "pajama-type" colors and Danielle over at Color Throwdown had a PERFECT combo for me!

The gals over at Crafty Creations Challenge Blog are wanting us to do some "paper piecing" for their Challenge #62....fits my card! :)

I hope you take the time to try out these awesome challenges - they are fabbie ones this week!!!
