Cruisin' On a Snowy Afternoon! A KitCat Challenge
FINALLY – It’s my January KitCat Challenge Card! I *never dreamed* I would be this late in posting, especially since I was the hostess! Those reasons later; on to the card!
I was *really* tired of winter, so it was a no-brainer to feature Bella cruising in her Vette! I threw in some summery papers and fun Bella-like embellies for the rest of the kits, and only asked that the Kittens choose a card fold that they either hadn’t yet tried or that was their favorite.
I chose to make an Easel Fold card and I love this fold!! I know I’ll use it for a picture frame card, a calendar card, all sorts of fun cards!
And just wait until you see the GORGEOUS creations by Michelle, Catherine, Lorie, Kelly, and Jeanette!
Okay, there are 2 reasons I’m late in posting:
REASON #1. Little did I know that Mother Nature was about to slam us with one of the worst storms the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic states had ever seen: Snowmageddon 2010!
Here’s our patio area around 6 PM Friday:
And 12 hours later around 6 AM Saturday, with 20 *more* inches of snow than they had predicted for us.
Not only did we get close to 40 inches of snow between the 5th and the 10th, we also lost power for almost 36 hours. Not fun, especially since we have well water. So laundry and dishes and general housecleaning piled up for almost 2 days. Fortunately, The Man has a 4WD & The Girl has an AWD, we have 2 gas fireplaces, and snow is nature’s freezer, so we could make runs for coffee and food, we were warm, and we didn’t lose any food except the containers of leftovers that no one was going to eat anyway.
Here’s our fridge, from left to right: Meats, Deli, Dairy! LOL!!!
REASON #2. I strongly disliked my original card, so because of one of my personality traits, I totally redid my card. (I know; I probably need an intervention.) But I’m so glad that I did, because I really like this one!
Be sure to hop along at the Love Me Do Bella Blog Hop tomorrow, February 13, starting at 10 AM Eastern at the StampingBella Blog! I'm so excited to be playing along as one of the Blog Hop Stops! My first one!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll visit again soon!
