I am so ready for Spring!

Hello everyone, today I have a card that I made for a couple of challenges.  the first one is for Tina's color challenge on StampTV, to use wine, kraft and yellow.  I am just under the line on this one.  The other is for a somewhat new challenge blog called Oh, Alice!  They are on their fourth week of challenges and I have been meaning to play along since the beginning.  This week it is a sketch and I do love sketch challenges so I have to do it.  If you have the time check them out I think it will be a fun challenge each week.

On a personal note.  Our power company sent us out a letter a couple of weeks ago telling us that they needed to upgrade some equipment and that we should be prepared to be without power for about 22 hours!  I was not looking forward to this as no electricity means no computer (at least for more than couple of hours), and most importantly no lights!  Now I have to say that having no lights would not have bothered me much a few years ago before I became so completely hooked on stamping.  The weekends are when I am most able to stamp and with out light I can hardly stamp as my eyes have began to age rather quickly and I can hardly stamp without my OTT light.  The good news is that I did mange to stamp a little and my husband and I played games and eat Jiffy Pop popcorn.  My son works at a grocery store and he was telling me that he had several people come in and tell him they were staying at a local motel due the having no power, can you believe it!  Sadly though a house not to far from our house burnt down last night.  There sure were a lot of firetrucks and I didn't see any ambulances so I am thinking that everyone is okay.

Thank you for stopping by,
