Going Dotty

It's a snow day here in Michigan and my title should be Going Batty, not dotty. But, I used dots not bats, so Going Dotty it is. I don't know what the school superintendant has against us Mom's, there is no reason that school had to be cancelled today. We had a blizzard yesterday, but the roads were clear by this morning. On top of it, I got up at 5:30 and checked the news. Nope, our district did not cancel. so, I sit down with my coffee and am on my 2nd cup when the cancellation pops up on the TV. Man! I could have gone back to bed but there was no turning
back at that point. Now, the kids are bored and I am trying to get them to do something other than eat and watch television. My challenge card is finally done, but it sure felt like a struggle to get here with all the distractions today. The heart and fancy scroll are Tim Holtz grungeboard that was smooshed into Versacolor Ash rose and raspberry pads. I then embossed them with clear EP. The sentiment is part of a stamp from Rubbernecker Stamp co. called Petite Words/set of 10 small sentiment stamps. The edges of my layers were distressed with Versafine Vintage Sepia and a toothbrush. Inks and grungeboard are all available from Rubbernecker


  1. Oh, I love this card, Shelly! It's just beautiful!

    Blizzard, huh? I had to run my car air conditioner when I went to lunch today! It's in the 70's. Love it!
