My heart is happy...

Hello again!

Man oh man did we have a snow storm blow through here yesterday. It started around 9am and didn't let up all day. Needless to say, I had the fun of shoveling paths in the afternoon. I'm already anxious for February to hurry up and get here so that I can realistically look forward to a warm up and melt off. But it's still January and for now this is all par for the course unfortunately. 

Today I wanted to play along with the Farm Fresh Challenge over on the TGF blog to use something new. I'm not usually a big fan of Glitz papers but I recently got the Cashmere Dame paper pad because the colors were too pretty to resist. So that is my 'something new' for the challenge... though technically, even though I've had her for awhile, I've never inked up this particular Miss Anya Garland beauty so she's kinda new too. ;)

Ok, ok... I had better get a move on considering I'll probably have to dig the car out before I can head to work this morning. Whine and moan, whine and moan, LOL!
Stay classy San Diego!

I feel bad complaining about rain today when you have all that snow...I love this paper pad too and I'm sure people are sick of seeing it on my blog. You've done a beautiful job with it here especially using it with the black - it just makes everything pop.

Oooo Amy, I love this!! The colors are fantastic, and your coloring rocks! Thanks for joining the challenge over at TGF!!

Love the way you've colored Miss Anya Garland! Her heart garland really stands out against her white skirt. Lol, you fuss about the snow and I fuss about the heat...sounds like the curly hair vs straight hair issues.

Jo said...

Love how you colored her. She's one of my fave TGF stamps. Thanks for playing along.
