Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I hope that you are all well and ready for Christmas, staying warm and cozy indoors if you have been in an area that was affected by the blizzard! Wow, so much snow everywhere and yet none down here in Miami!!! I definately live in the wrong place!! I'm sure many of you are finishing last minute preparations or are already busy with family and friends just as I will be soon. I'm taking off to find some colder weather!!
I didn't think that I would have a card for you this week as I had my little boy home from school with a high fever. It turned out that it must have been a 48 hour bug because the fever left as quickly as it came on.
My card is not one of my favorites but I guess you can't like all of them the same can you? I love the martini glass which is brushed metal with the added little sparkle of the red gem, but I had a hard time thinking of what background paper to use.
