Please accept my aplogies for not coming around to visit you my dear friends lately, apparently the flu shot does not protect one from the dreaded Norovirus.
And I'm not even on a cruise ship!
It shall pass.
BUT WHEN!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Ok I am a bit better now.

Thanks coming by, even though I am probably contagious 
and definitely Ms Cranky Pants.

I know it's over.
This is for the
I told myself I am not allowed to make anything digital today, so.
I made two.
The first is just your basic step card
with three inchies.
 And the second is even simpler.
Four twinchies, one popped up.
It's hard to tell it's popped, but it is.
Why don't you start your cards for 2014?

Elements used are by Beth Rimmer, Kim Klassen, 
Durin Eberhart, and Here Kaye Edwards

Weekend Reflections

I really like this site, cus it's a glimpse into
other people's lives around the world.
And I'm snoopy that way.
This shot?
I think it's close to Banff,
but I'm not positive.  I've been just
getting in my truck and driving down backroads,
with camera in tow.
Pretty much my favorite way to spend a day.
It's good I have a 4x4 though,
or I'd still be stuck somewhere.
We've had a record-breaking snowfall this year to date.

I hope you're staying warm where you are.
Thanks for coming by!

The Weekend in Black and White

Different Little Houses?

The incredibly talented sheila77 has given us a fun challenge
