Become One

I decide to take part in Sharon's tall and thin challenge two things I would love to be......LOL! I love Sharon's challenge and adore long and tall cards although I don't make many I do really like them.

I decide to bring Embrace Life out once more to see if we could be friends and YES I love how these flowers turned out, I think we might be able to make this friendship work out!

Oh My Word have we got a ton of snow in the last 2 days probably got 6 inches last night alone. We live on top of a big hill I will take a picture later to give you some prospective of how large the hill really is, anyhoo get up to drive Jason to work this morning and............the plows have not been out now it started snowing at 6 pm last night and was still snowing at 6 am when we got up!! We are on a high priority road but.........no plows for over 12 hours??? When I came back home from driving Jason to work it took 3 attempts to get up the hill the snow was so deep I couldn't get any traction.

Then at 8 am I go to take the girls to school still no plows.......hmmmm finally at 9 am the plow comes by!! A whole 15 hours of snow accumulation before a plow came to a high priority road.......my question is should I phone city hall and complain, will it do any good?

Well that's my rant for the day.....LOL! I am not having the best start to a Friday, the snow thing then a guy in a truck blocking the road, making me have to back down another big hill ( the other one that connects to out hill), then come home home toilet over flows....yada yada yada..... hopefully my day gets better!! Sorry for the long post.

And here is a side view of the kickstand card I promised, the picture probably explains it so much better then I do!!

Supplies: Embrace Life, Secret Garden Simply Scrappin Kit, white card stock, black ink, rub on, brads, ribbon, nestabilities, stickles and dimensionals.

Oh my think the worse is the toilet thing, can't win against City Hall, if you complain, they will probably pack all the snow in front of your house. Love the card, that paper is beautiful. Hope to be able to do this challenge this weekend.

Love your tall and thin card, Kelly -- those papers/colors are just beautiful, as is the main image!! It's truly gorgeous!!! And your kickstand card is very lovely as well. I haven't had a chance to try one of those, but I surely would like to!!! Hope your day gets better -- stamp, it'll help!!! Oh, I'm sort of tall, not short anyway, but thin -- NOT!!! Just wishing -- LOL!!!

Beautiful cards Kelly..
I really love the tall card. The colors are fabulous together. You have inspired me to try my had at a tall card... I've never made one! And about the snow...wish you could pack it up and send some my way...and I would definitely call, you never know, you could be the tipping point that makes the difference!

Hi Kelly!

2 great cards. Sorry about your "not great" day!! I've had the toilet thing happen, too, and I just threw my hands up in the air.

Take care of yourself. Thanks for the inspiration!
