Thanks (a lot)

I'm finishing up a big project at work this week that wouldn't be possible without a lot of help from a lot of people. This is one of the cards I made to thank my co-workers. Our school colors are gold and black, but that can be a bit boring. It's also difficult to find other colors to go with that combination. I've gone to our marketing page, and picked up the teal and red from colors they like to use to accent these. Since it's a work project, I think that will make it really special! All paper and stamps are from Club Scrap.

A Snowy Valentine's Day

Paul and I went snowshoeing around Hungarian Falls today. It sure is amazing to see running water with all of the snow! We had a bit of an adventure by choosing a different way to hike back, and even saw a woodpecker! If you ever wonder why we choose to live "at the end of the earth" the beauty of this day might help you understand.

Hope you have a great day with your loved ones.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I absolutely love making little boxes! I made this one for my co-workers for Valentine's day. The box is sized just right to hold three Ghirardelli chocolates. I got the template from a Split Coast Stampers Tutorial. If I made these again, I would cut the paper to 4.25 x 7. In the last step, the flap is trimmed a bit, and cutting to this measurement would allow you to cut three boxes out of one 12 x 12 piece of paper (instead of two with a fair amount of waste). The background stamp is from Club Scrap and the focal image is from Stampin' Up!

Hope you have a great day filled with the love of family and friends!

Snow, snow and more snow

We expect a lot of snow in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and we love to play in it! Paul and I went skiing this weekend at our favorite downhill spot - Powderhorn Mountain. Today, however, was a different story. I think we got a dozen inches of snow in one day. And yet, we keep on going! The roads were pretty clear, but the parking lots and side streets were in rough shape today. It gets dark early, so no light to take a photo today.
