Let it Snow......

Anywhere but here!!!! lol

OK you all are going to see just what I was talking about when I said "nicotine withdrawals" kill my mojo!! It also plays havoc with my OCD, making a card now takes hours due to wanting it to be "better" and fuss over every small detail oh, about 100 times!  **grrr** 
At least I got it made!! lol
I do thank all of you that are "right beside me" through this time. And for you that are praying.......keep it up as some days (like today) it is all that is keeping me from slipping up!!  
With mom and hubby still smoking (outside of course!) it is quite tempting to join them. But I refuse to smoke, even if it kills all my mojo!! Yikes, lets hope it doesn't come to that!! 
See the banner up top on my blog? How fun will it be if I can save all that money to spend on paper and other goodies?!! *smile*

Jingle Belles: "Text Me" we are to incorporate text into our card. 
CHCC : "Let's get sentimental" the sentiment needs to be the focal point.

Martha Stewert: paper, buttons, boarder punch, SU: card stock, corner punch, cuttle bug snow embossing folder, misc: pearls, stamps: creative vision "let it snow" set, snow stickles, glossy accents.

Well this is not one of my better cards, but there is always next week, eh? *smile*

I was inspired by this sketch from Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge

Hey Rosie - when I saw your smoke free banner, the first thing I thought was that you must be about ready to tear off a few heads. I've been where you are - and it's not easy, but you can do it. Hang in there girl.

One way to keep distracted is to continue to create wonderful cards just like this. Such a fabulous take on the WMS sketch challenge this week! Well done, my smoke-free friend.

First ... a big-double Woot Woot for sticking with your no-smoking plan ... I'm sure it's very difficult, but having experienced multiple family members who were able to quit, I can tell you none of them regrets it one bit. Love that fun texty background with that cute little snowman ... we got more snow in Iowa today ... thanks for joining our jingle belles fun.

duuuuuuuuude!!! you've got ♥A WHOLE WEEK♥!!!!!!!! that's awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cause i mean...DAYS are good...but most ppl can manage DAYS...you're up into the next unit of measurement now--SERIOUS moral high-ground!!!!! ♥♥♥ keep goin', missus! you can DO IT!!!!!!!! (i know b/c *I* did it and there was never a more OCD person with an addictive personality than me, i'm PRETTTTTTTTY sure!!!!) :) :) :)

as for the CARD: ok, see, i don't think it's your MOJO that's affected by the nicotine loss...i think it's you EYESIGHT!!! because seriously, this is ♥GORGEOUS♥! plus, it's a GREAT version of both the "text me" prompt *and* of that adorable sketch! everything about this works together perfectly, enhances the theme and looks great!

seriously. just KEEP MOVING and making stuff...and in a couple of weeks when you look back at your output i predict you will say, "WHY didn't i like these??!?!?!? ♥♥♥♥♥

I have put something in the "Support Rose" box to celebrate 1 week smoke free! When you hit 30 days, I'll send you a RAK box! I am so proud of you!

Aw, now stop being so hard on yourself - your mojo is just fine and your card is so happy - it made me smile when I saw it pop up!

Very happy and plenty of interest with the motif, the texture and the frosted buttons!
