Color Challenge 347

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

Hope your all doing well. It's been an extremely crazy last few days that has kept me from my stamp table but today I made my way back! :)

As most know the east coast had this major snow storm that started early Saturday morning. I tell ya, it seems the crazy acts of Mother Nature follow us everywhere we go! LOL
We had 9 inches of heavy wet snow here in Red Lion and most folks lost power. We were lucky that ours stayed on most of the day. I watched Shawn most of the afternoon work on his work bench in the garage while I baked a big pan of lasanga in the oven. We no sooner ate and I got the table cleared & dishes washed and the power went off. We were so bored we didn't know what to do with ourselves! LOL I tried to stamp by flashlight but that didn't go too well. We ended up going to bed early and waking up the next morning...freezing our butts off. The weather sure was frightful outside but inside felt just as cold as out. We sat around Sunday morning wrapped in blankets hoping the power would soon come back on. Mid afternoon it finally came back on and every one was quite happy then! Unforunately, there are many close by that are still without power and today the temps warmed up quite a bit to help melt alot of the snow. It really seemed odd to be handing candy out last nite for Trick or Treat night with snow on the ground!!! LOL In all my 45 years I have never seen anything like it!

Here are a few pictures from Saturday's snow....

Snow on the Halloween flag sure was an odd sight!

So, today was Color Challenge day at SCS. One of my favorite challenges!

The colors today are:
Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke & More Mustard

I left my designer paper do all the talking on my card..

Color Challenge 347 Card:

Stamps: Sentiment from Impression Obsession
Ink: Bravo Burgundy
Cardstock: Confetti Cream, Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard
Accessories: SU Square Lattice EF, Gold Cord, Dimensionals, Scor Tape

I hope ya like!! I'm thrilled that the fall season is upon us although it felt like winter here the last few days! LOL Stay tuned this week for the start of my Thanksgiving Thursday Cards. Every Thursday up till Thanksgiving i'll share a card made for it. I have been doing this for the last few years and it helps me to get a few Thanksgiving cards made to send out because if I would not do this the Thanksgiving holiday would get lost amungst all the Christmas stuff! So stay tuned for that! :)

Well, that's all for me!
I have to go get my supper on the table before Shawn gets in from work.
I'll be back shortly to share with you my November calendars! Woohoo! Can't believe it's November already!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty card, We were fortunate, our lights were blinking...but stayed on. I know that not too far from us...some of our friends were without electricity.

Our power was off for 4 hours, and oddly enough, I'd just finished making a big pot of chicken pot pie and no sooner turned the burner off, than the power went poof! Talk about good timing huh? LOL For 2 days our power blinked on/off every couple hours which was frustrating, but some folks in Connecticut still have no power and won't until the end of the week! I shall refrain from complaining :)
Great card, and such pretty dp!!
Stay warm!

Pretty fall card and WHOA on the unusual snowy weather!! Not sure I'm ready for that yet, haha, it's so pretty though. Glad your power didn't stay off for long.
