I think that I was more tired than anything else yesterday so a bit of a sleep in did me good. No signs of that nasty cold taking me down any time soon. So far there aren't any signs of new snow falling today so I'm thinkin' I'll take advantage of my first Saturday off in months to finally go see The Hobbit.
As for my card, I'm not sure if I've inked up this Sweetheart Gorjuss Girl before or not but she was looking pretty cute so here she is. At first I didn't have much of a direction for the rest of the card but when I pulled out the 5th & Frolic paper pad and decided on this pink sheet with the cross stitch hearts everything else started to fall into place. The cool embroidery hoop stamps are new and I couldn't wait to give them a go. I have some pretty fond memories of my mom cross stitching all the time when I was little so whenever I see Aida cloth and needlework I think of her and my heart does smile. :)
Alrighty time for me to go get my hobbit on, LOL!
