What a cute card Jaydee and such a cute, sweet sentiment besides.
So happy to hear that you are still among the working force and saddened by those that where cut.

I don't know who wrote the following poem but thought it was rather cute.

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the inks look so delightful
So while the winter is cold and damp
Let us stamp! Let us stamp! Let us stamp!

It doesn't take much convincing
And I've brought a tool for crimping
Choose some paper, turn up the lamp
Let us stamp! Let us stamp! Let us stamp!

When we carefully press just right
How we smile as the image unfolds
Add some color, so bold, so bright
The result is a sight to behold!

Our projects are quickly drying
And there's new techniques for trying
So until we get finger cramps
Let us stamp! Let us stamp! Let us stamp!

Enjoy your weekend

Jaydee this is absolutely CAS perfection! I am glad to hear that you are still employed but am sad for your co-workers that aren't.

Sweet card Jaydee. Love the three shades of blue for the blocks. And you are right, the stitched panel really adds a lot of fun and interest to the design (they are on my wishlist!!). Loll xx

Gorgeous card Jaydee and I love the verse on the inside as well - very cute:) Thanks for having me along as a guest this month - it's fun to join you guys - hugs xx


What a delightful little card, Jaydee. You are the queen of those subtle little touches that make a card "pop". I love it!

Oh dear. While I'm relieved to hear you weren't on the list, I'm so very sorry for so many of your coworkers and friends. I'll definitely add them to my prayer list.

I'm delighted you got to experience warm temps for awhile, and shopping? What's not to love about that? :oP

Spring *has* to come, right? RIGHT?!??


P.S. Hi Lou!


Wow, those temps are insane!! I'm not sure I would cope, lol. I bet it makes for some amazing photos though. Your card is divine! I really, really LOVE it xx


Shades of blue on those blocks is simply perfection :)


Dear Jaydee:

Usually we want to be in "the lists", BUT, not in this one!! So glad to hear you were not on it. At the same time my prayers will be for those who lost their jobs . . . let's be positive and may they find something else.

Your card so CAS and as always so beautiful!!

A warm hug for you and your followers.

Wow that is cold!! Adorable cards, the first one I just love the design x

Hi Jaydee! Oh your card is cas perfection! The blues are just dreamy together and the stitched die is a lovely touch. I love your sentiment inside. I don't recall seeing that before.

Ha ha ha, Colleen made me smile this morning with her cute little poem. How clever!!

I'm so sorry for your coworkers who have lost their jobs. I will keep them in my prayers. When one door closes, another one opens. Hoping they open quickly for each of them.

Sally Davis

Glad to hear of your good news with the work situation. But sad for those left behind. My thoughts will be with them and you as you all adjust to the news. The promise of spring is yet to be realized in my area also. However, there have been sightings of robins and red winged blackbirds so hopefully they know more than me! I have to say I was glad to turn the calendar page over yesterday. Somehow that makes it seem closer. Hang in there!

Hope Lou was home to take care of the cats while Mom was away earning a living for their food.

So sad to hear of jobs lost. There is such greed in this country that judgments are being made that will affect more than the rats who decide. I must not get started on this as it could become a novel.
