Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful ...

Yep, it sure it....

Minnesota is currently in the midst of a nasty snowstorm and the weather outside is awful frightful with snow, bitterly cold winds and falling temps.

Here's what it looks like outside....



On a nasty winters day like this, there is nothing better than staying indoors where it's nice and cozy and enjoying a nice pot of delicious hot tea and nibbling on some yummy fresh baked scones still warm from the oven....

Once I nourished myself with these tasty treats, it was time for some more paper crafting. I continue to add to my pile of embellished tags with these new creations....



For this tag, I cut up a vintage birthday card from my stash that had a pretty rose design on it that looked very much like vintage wallpaper and mixed it with some sheet music. I also used some some folded pale pink crepe paper to add some more dimension to the tag. The color of the crepe paper matched the color of the rose almost exactly...

I've said it before, but I love color coordinating all of the embellishments I use in my tags. From the papers to the buttons, to the ribbons and other bits and pieces.


Well, that's what I've been up to on this nasty winter's day. What have you been doing this weekend? Hopefully, the weather where you live isn't quite as frightful as it is here.

I feel so bad for you with such nasty weather - but it is pretty to look at. We were fortunate today to have weather at 70 degrees, but watch out, next week it will drop to the twenties at night. Brenda

I think the entire midwest is being affected by that nasty storm. We have had howling winds, and the ground is now covered in white stuff.
Your chintz teapot is gorgeous!

Oh so pretty, Kim! Isn't it so fun to line up all your colors and textures? I haven't made a tag in so long. :( I'm almost ready to get back to crafting

After having bellow zero temps over thanksgiving AND huge snow falls, it seems like our weather is taking a break. Thank goodness!But still, if it wasn't for having to come to town to use the Internet, I'd be staying home, too!

I watched all the behind the scenes stuff on my eclipse DVD over the week end! Fun stuff! ♥
