What a weekend!

My week just barely started... had to get this card out of my system before I get to cleaning my mountain of laundry and sorting through a ton of stuff since we had to clean this weekend because of a flood in our house. Yes, a flood that warranted a call to 911 because we couldn't shut off our water supply. It was so cold that our pipes froze and ruptured. Same thing happened 2 years ago. Insane.

Anyways, decided to pay tribute to the chilly weather with a silver and white color combo, please take mercy on us!! Friendship is the theme since in our times of need, we have amazing, wonderful friends who we can always count on in case of an emergency like this past weekend.

Thanks, V&J, after 36 hours we have heat again!



Here's a close-up of the 3d butterfly punched out with one of Martha Stewart's newest punch. Goodness, I just want all her punches!!
