Day 3 of No Heat!

Yes, that is right...three days without heat.  I am trying to be thankful for at least having a roof over my head, but this is getting kind of ridiculous!  It looks like they are going to be able to get it working for awhile, but are pretty sure we are going to need a new furnace before too long.  Yippee skippy!  That will definitely cut into my stamping budget. :(

Even though I have been cold, it has not stopped me from stamping!  I needed to do some cheery stamping today so I used this sketch from Nacho Average Challenges:
I thought this looked like a fun sketch! My card doesn't look like something that I usually do, but it is cheery at least. :)
I had some scraps of Summer Smooches DSP left over from my last Scrap Club and they worked perfectly for my happy card!  Couldn't resist embossing the card base for some texture.  It just looked so plain without it!  I don't usually wrap a ribbon all the way around a card like this, but it's really easy to do with the skinny ribbon. I need to get some more colors of that stuff...after I buy my new furnace. ;)

  1. Love this. I just got this stamp set and can't wait to use it. We used the same framelets but ended up with two very different results. :) TFS

  2. Lovely card - hope you get warm soon - Jacqueline xx

  3. No heat, no problem. A true stamper! Thanks for playing with the Nachos this week.

  4. Hope your furnace is working soon!! But, at least you have stamping to keep your mind off the cold! LOL!! Love, love, love your card--so bright and happy! Thanks for joining the Nachos this week!

  5. What a bright and beautiful card! I love how you stacked your birdies, too! what a wonderfully creative card, and thank you for playing along with us @ NAC. I know we would love to see what you create for our next challenge! Hope to see more of your work.

  6. I do hope that the furnace is now working properly. Having a broken furnace in the cold nights of winter is bad news for anyone. And it is a good thing that you managed to hold out for 3 days without a furnace. I’d be willing to bet some people would fall sick on the first day. Anyway, the card looks great! It is amazing that you can still make a card like that. I bet you can make a better one once that furnace started working and warmed you up.
