Rejoicing That I Have Electricity and Heat!


For today's SCS Color Challenge 197:
Baja Breeze
Basic Grey
Kiwi Kiss
Not Quite Navy

I love this color combination.
My stamps are from a new December release by Our Daily Bread designs called Worship the Lord. The piercing in the corner was done with an Ornare piercing template, also available at ODBD.

I am rejoicing that I have electricity and heat -- I know it's cold a lot of places around the country and some are without power and frozen pipes. It's warmed up from -28 wind chill to just -9 with a 7 degree temp. We've havin' a heat wave!!!

Only two more days and my son will be home from college (UNCG) for the holidays! We are very excited here; more than he is right now! He just called me to tell me he finished his last exam today and was wearing SHORTS. I said, "Ummmm......it's 7 degrees here........" Total silence. Good thing I already bought his plane ticket or I think he wouldn't come at all!

Thanks for stopping by today!

That is such an elegant card. I love the punched corners and the little row of bling, and the ribbon.
I saw in the paper about the power outages in parts of the States - no fun at this time of year. And I obviously don't know much about Nebraska because I didn't realise it got that cold there. It's been about 32F here for a week, just got milder again. I shouldn't complain!
Have a wonderful family holiday together.

Lovely card Joy!

So glad you have power and heat once again. I'm sure there are plenty of broken pipes in the affected areas.

Enjoy your time with your family!
