Hello Friends! Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope that you are having a Wonderful Wednesday. We are expecting some snow today...I am typing this at 2 am Wednesday it has not yet started...but they already canceled school for Wednesday. It's not suppose to be a lot of snow...maybe 4-6 inches around my area. It's just that the timing will be when the kids (and adults!) would be riding to school. And it's suppose to accumulate at an inch-2 inches an hour. So it's just bad timing really. I don't work outside of my home, so I don't have to worry about the commute on most days. But today I have an appointment that I don't want to I guess I will be out driving in the mess. The good thing about my husband being home is that he will be here with the kids and I don't have to worry about rescheduling. :)

Today's card uses a Motivet Stamp that I purchased back in June. This is little Doraline...and she is SORRY! I bought her because when I came across the Motivet booth at the stamp convention I was overwhelmed with trying to make a desicion on which stamps to buy. ALL of them were so cute! And unfortunately, I was not aware that Motivet was there and came across them after I had already spent too much money. :( So I was trying to choose just one or maybe two stamps. When I am overwhelmed with trying to choose stamps I generally will choose what I consider to be versatile stamps. Stamps that I can use for multi-purposes. Whether it's a birthday, Mother's Day, Christmas....etc...This is one of those stamps. And this Doraline reminds me of my little Maeve: She's so cute that it hardly matters what she was just caught doing! LOL! Maeve will be 3 soon and has learned just the right way and timing to say "I sorry mommy". She really says it like she means it. With guilt, sadness, and innocence in her eyes. She just melts my heart. I believe that if Maeve were ever on Santa's naughty list she could change his mind in a heartbeat too. (PS- you can see my Summer version of this stamp HERE.)

So about a week and a half ago I was invited to become a member of the Motivet Design Team. It was a total "pinch me so I know it's not a dream" moment! Even as I type this, I feel a little dizzy! The thing that I thought was hilarious, was that Stephanie, (Motivet owner) asked me like I might say no...HA! Uuuuummm.... like I might have turned this FANTASTICAL opportunity down!!!!
She mentioned that every Friday they have a challenge on the Inspiration blog. This past Friday was a gorgeous sketch. I did not receive my new stamps until yesterday, but I thought that this Doraline would be perfect trying to explain her way off Santa's naughty list! So I created the sentiment for the outside and inside of the card on my computer. And I think she looks just as cute dressed up for Christmas as she did in her summer outfit. :)

There are lots of ways to win FREE STAMPS at the Motivet Inspiration blog (I love FREE stuff! heeheehee):

3) Right now Stephanie is giving one lucky stamper all 12 of the recent releases!

Ok....well it is nearly 3 AM now....and I am not even sure if I typed up complete thoughts on this post....and I am too tired at this point to proof-read. hahahaha! You know when I have lot's of incomplete thoughts and misspellings that I didn't proof-read. Meaning I was exhausted or in a hurry to post. hahahaha!

So off to bed I am!

Have a Warm and Toasty Wednesday!

Oh how CUTE!

Gorgeous card. I can't believe school is closed for a little snow. The only time school has ever been closed for me is when we got about 16" of snow in a 24 hour period. The city busses stopped running, and the university was also closed.
