Simple Pleasures and I won some Blog Candy!

I don't know about you, but this card makes me want to whistle the theme song from "The Andy Griffith Show"! I have always been a big fan of the show, the black and white ones, anyway. I think I had a small crush on Andy when I was younger! Truth be told, I really love all the old sitcoms from that era. I always show Kip the cards that I make and when I showed this to him, he said the same thing about whistling. The stamp is by Inkadinkadoo, I stamped it using Palette ink and then mounted it onto the brown card stock and then onto the black paper. I took a black pen and drew in the dots surrounding the image. Since I was thinking that this would make a great card for my grandfather, I decided to leave it fairly simple so it would look masculine.

The past couple of weeks have been a little crazy. Due to the cold and wet weather, my pain level has been pretty high which makes me a little irritable and I have been working extra hours which doesn't help anything. Imagine how happy I was today when I got home today and found a box sitting on the kitchen counter. I followed a link from SCS one day and found Carrie's blog and have been reading it for a while now. She makes some really nice cards and I love her photos that she has posted. I try not to complain too much about the cold after reading her posts of how cold it is there in Alaska. I won some blog candy from her blog and this is what she sent me:
So a million thank yous Carrie and you made my week! I can't wait for the weekend to roll around so that I can get busy will all my new things. 

The forecast here tonight is for freezing rain and ice. I hope everyone is safe and warm, no matter where you are.
