Well, hello there and welcome!  What a crazy winter we are having here in Southern Quebec ( I am about an hour or so north of Montreal).  Last Wednesday, we set records for the cold - minus 29 deg C on the thermometer (Yikes!!) and yesterday, we set records for the warmest day in history at plus 10 deg C !!  Go figure; that's 40 degrees in a week.  But what is worse is the fact that today, less than 24 hours later, we will be back down to about minus 10 deg. C!!  Luckily, I have the day off today and can play in my scraproom. I made a couple of summery cards, hoping they will warm me slightly:

I used the Stampin' Up Mixed Bunch stamp set.

If you are in the cold as I am, I hope these cards warm you up a bit LOL; and if you are in warmer climes, please send warm thoughts.  Have a great day

Well, hello there and welcome!  Finally, you say?  Yes, let me first apologise to all of you who have visited over the last few weeks only to find a blank blog!  I have been wanting to start blogging for a few months now but somehow just didn't quite get started.  A little intimidated I think.  So here we go.

What can you expect to find here?  This blog will mainly be dedicated to scrapbooking, one of my great passions.  However, I may occasionally chat about some of the other passions in my life :  reading cozy mysteries (I'll post the odd critique, or recommendation), cooking, our animals, tennis and gardening.
