Baby It's Cold Outside!

I thought I'd be away from the computer for several days...but due to the weather, I find myself having a little time this morning. Baby it's COLD in Oregon ;) ... woke up to 10 degrees in Corvallis today. We're heading to Portland in a couple hours. Waiting for it to "warm up"... upper 20s is the best we can hope for today, but we're also waiting for better road conditions. In the meanwhile, I wanted to show you the very last Christmas card that I made before leaving home. It's a warm, wintery scene accented with the hearts from the upcoming Love You Much stamp set & coordinating punch (available December 23rd). This card and the candle were for a very special lady named Anita :) ! Like so many of my friends, her life is a beautiful expression of love and warmth, so this card and candle were the perfect Christmas gifts for her! You wouldn't believe how yummy this candle smells! My friend Tonya hand pours these soy candles (click HERE to visit Tonya's blog). The Little Felt Flurries & the Button (from the Button Bouquet collection) were quick & easy decorations for the lid :) !! The Holiday Treasures DP and Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon provided just the right amount of decoration for the tin.

Okay, I guess it's time to shower and head for Portland. It's warmed up to a whopping 12 degrees outside! Don't forget to sign up for my Valentine Blog Candy...click HERE for all the details. One lucky duck will win that brand new So In Love set from OCL :) !!!!!

It has been toooo cold here! I had no idea that we lived so close to each other... I knew you were in OR. but, I thought down south on the coast like gold beach or, something...

I hope that you have had a safe trip up and back...

These are so great! I really have to invest in those snowflakes... at least for next year's gifts. The candle looks amazing!
