You wouldn't know it with this beautiful sunny day here in Kamloops, BC with slightly warmer weather and less wind. It's suppose to be like this throughout the weekend so here's hoping. My husband will most likely go chop some wood for our new woodstove insert (which warms the house beautifully). Chopping wood day is really neat because everyone gets involved even the two year old. DH takes one of the kids out to the bush and then when they come home we all work for an hour or so piling the wood while dad splits it. The amazing thing is that all three kids work so well together. The drawback is that wood doesn't burn as clean as gas but I find if we light the fire for only 5 hours in the evening the gas furnace doesn't even kick in all night.
The wood fire last night put me in the mood to make Christmas cards using the Get Sketchy Challenge #9. I can't believe it's been nine weeks of challenges already! Time flies! and to prove that the Christmas Holidays will soon be knocking on our door. I had a lot of fun last night using some new, inspiring designer paper and chipboard embelishments. This collection works wonderfully with SU! colours Soft Sky, Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink, and Olive Green. Ruby Red also works well but wasn't used in either of these cards.
Thanks for taking a peek and hope you are all doing fabulously.
