Whoa! The Snow!

Well, it finally stopped! The snow that is! It has snowed almost 2 feet since Sunday, breaking a 40 year old record for the amount of snow in a two day period! We even made the National News! In all the time I taught in this school district, we NEVER had a snow day, but there was one today. For most people, the day's agenda called for shovelling snow. PERIOD. Well, that and watching the Canadian Junior Hockey Team win a Gold Medal in the World Junior Hockey Tournament!  Yay, Canada!  Here's what our yard looked like when the snow finally stopped late this afternoon.

But, I digress, and there is so much to tell you today!  First, the big news is that the Occasions 2015 Catalogue goes live today!!

How exciting is that?!!  Click on the photo above to link to the catalogue. Also Sale-A-Bration starts today!  For every $60 you spend (before shipping and tax), you can earn one Sale-A-Bration item for free.  Here's a link to the Sale-A-Bration Brochure:

 I promise you will be thrilled with these two catalogues! There is so much awesomeness packed into both! I will be putting in an order on Thursday, so let me know if there is something you want to order.

We heard yesterday that a good friend was taken to hospital with undiagnosed symptoms and I wanted to make a get well card for him. I also wanted to enter the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #234 :

It's a colour challenge as you can see, and here's what I came up with:

  • This is a fairly simple card. The only remarkable thing about it is that I used my ecutter for the ship and the anchor. I'm getting the hang of it, but there is a bit of a learning curve as I figure out what it will cut and what it won't. But I had some good results here with the ship and the anchor from The Open Sea stamp set, an old favourite.
  • The layout is simple with layers of Wisteria Wonder and Brushed Silver Cardstock on a Night of Navy Base. I used the Labels Collection Framelits to cut the Night of Navy plaque and the Ovals Collection Framelits to cut the oval of Silver Glimmer Paper for the middle.
  • The anchor is embossed with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder and then cut with the ecutter! I think I'm going to love that tool!
  • The sentiment is from the Four You stamp set.
Finally, there is a new set of Weekly Deals for this next week:
