Jitters and Snow Storms!

Last night was great we went to the multi-cultural event! It was actually less stressful than ever. Em is getting older so she wants to go off with her friends every once in awhile. Not for long but Mommy standing near is apparently not very cool! Anyway food was difficult since the gym was packed and the lines were long. So Karen, Sah, and I took the girls to TGI Friday's afterward. They had so much fun and were thrilled to be out together. Soon we'll have pics of Emily and Zayla in their costumes they dressed in!
My new vacuum is wonderful. I can't complain one bit about what I paid($29 Circuit City online free shipping came in 3 days) it cleans and it stands straight up when I'm done! My old vacuum is a bit tired it only lays down refuses to stand and well it was in serious need of a tune up which would have cost at least $50+repairs. I checked they are out of the model I bought but they do have another one for $26 if you need a vacuum.
Tonight is the night our little Tree Lighting performance at the Community Center. Emily is excited, me not so much but that's just the pre-show jitters! We're supposed to get sleet and snow and ice and more snow today and tonight so we'll see how it goes.
I made this card in honor of our maybe first storm of the season. That way if it doesn't snow I still have my snowy flower to look at! The stamps are justjohanna. Flora Hugabundous and Snowflake Trio. The paper is Fabriano and Stampin Up. I used a template for the circles and colored them in with my white Sakura. Water colored the flowers in blue and also the background in washed out blue. Then I added Liquid Applique all over and heated it to puff. On top of that stickles for a bit of shimmer. The ribbon is Stampin up as well. The color combo is from the Splitcoast Color challenge this week.
Stay warm and have a happy Saturday!
