Bitter Cold Still - and a Card

More record breaking cold weather tonight. Apparently its going to feel like its -35C (-31F) overnight. Yikes. Will spring ever come or will be melting snow in June and July? Not much to report as I haven’t left the house today. I got a lot done on my quilt for Rondeau Park’s raffle though. Joe went off to the hockey game tonight but I know I couldn’t take the cold or the air horns they blow when the score so I stayed home and quilted.

 Today’s card is a soft and soothing sympathy card.

I love this paper but I have no idea where I bought it or who manufactured it. The photo is one I took at the park and the flowers the butterfly is on picks up the purple colour of the paper and ribbon. When I had this photo in Photoshop I blurred the edges to keep the soft look…which I really like. I tied the bow and decided to leave the tails quite long and glued it to the top left corner. The sentiment is a peel-off.

Well, the game should be over soon so time to put the tea kettle on. I’m sure a hot cup of tea will be appreciated after being out at a hockey game.
