Polar Bear - Joy

I had several challenges in mind when making this card.  The other day I was looking for a photo corner and pulled out a Quic Kutz die cut which I have had for ages and found this polar bear.  We had rain the past two days and people are having flooding.  There are roads and areas closed due to flooding.  What a mess! My daughter lives 100 miles north of me, and they had snow.  Now the problem is that the temperatures are suppose to drop to the teens today so we will have freezing.

I just can't believe how fast 2018 is going. I have a New Release image at Bugaboo with this St. Patrick's Day image of Edwards St. Pats and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  So we went from red and pink cards to now green.

You're sweet and I'm not LION

Today there is a new Stella Sketch at Catch the Bug, and I used Lion Topper and a sentiment from TLC, Create.
This week was busy, on Friday I spent the day in my daughter's classroom she had "Jump Rope for Heart" and their Valentine Party.  The day went fast.  Then I spent the night at my parents so that I could attend a funeral on Saturday.  My Mom helped me pin my dress for her Anniversary so that I can hem it.  Amanda took Gus to get a hair cut so I have before and after pictures of my Grandpup.  I also have a picture of a surprise that I received on Valentines.

 A dozen roses, bear and chocolates

 Amanda jumping with her students...see she they are almost as tall as her, hehe
