Wednesday night was tough - you probably heard on the news the incredibly awful traffic gridlock due to ice in the Washington DC area...we live south and woke up to this Thursday morning...I couldnt get out due to the ice and our road wasnt plowed until almost 1pm...power went off for awhile but it came back on...
Here is our backyard - it is pretty when you dont have to get out in it...

I so enjoyed participating in this hop - have been having computer problems (as most of you know) and havent been participating in many challenges this past holiday season - feels good to be "getting back in the saddle again" LOL
here are my two cards:
this was done with the GKD Botanicals set and Hope is Faith set...I dont know what I was thinking and used Asparagus on this one too!
This was done with the GKD's Spring Florals set and You Are Not Alone set ...most of the time you cant glitter to show and now this one shows but not very well
Now the Hop starts over at STV and if you came from Kay Simmons wonderful blog then you're on the right track and the next hop is over to see what gorgeousness is waiting at Lori's Blog . You won't be disappointed!!!
