Happy Birthday, Snow Raven

January 4, 2009

Yippee!! The snow had stopped falling sometime during the wee hours this morning. It's so good to look out and not see snowflakes coming down. Don't get me wrong, they are very pretty when they are falling, but oh, the clean-up! However, I'm glad it was all snow this weekend and not rain.

Today is a very special day for my friend, Snow Raven. It's her birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SNOW RAVEN. Here is a look at the card I posted on the forum for her. It was also the template challenge.

Special thanks to Polarfuch's Treasures for the balloon resources. Not to forget, Snow Raven made the template used here.
For Day 4 of my Photo A Day project, I only have one photo so far. This is the little tree just outside the door at work, and it's all decorated with new snow from yesterday. You have to admit, Mother Nature is just beautiful.

I also have a funny story to share today. This morning, as I started driving home from work, my car was making a weird noise. It was sort of a "whack!, whack! noise and it seemed to be on the outside of my car on my side. I thought maybe it was just some of the frozen slush from the road kicking up and hitting the underside, but it did not go away.
Now I was getting nervous. What could it be? Maybe I ran over a frozen piece of rope covered in ice and it got stuck to my car, and now it was slapping away at the side of my car? I was sure it would fall off soon. But it DID NOT! Finally, after a mile or so, I had to stop the car and get out and take a look. Well, for goodness sakes!!!!! I took my keys (I have two sets) out of the door lock, got back in my car and drove off with nary a sound! DUH!!!!!
I also have a new award to share. This one was given to me by my good friend, Kyra.Thank you, Kyra. What a great way to start my day! And folks, even though she recently had a huge computer crash, she is back in full swing designing some really beautiful kits. Do stop by her her blog and have a look, and while you're there, say hello.

The rules are quite simple. I must now pass it on to five other bloggers. So here are my nominees. Each of these ladies has a really special blog, offering beautiful freebies and wonderful stories.

Last night, I was in a sort of "purple" mood, so today's freebie is a purple QP. And now, I think I shall go change my clothes, and enjoy a cup of coffee. Y'all have a fantastic day now.
Hugs, Edna B.

Happy Birthday to Snow Raven!

The story about the keys sounds like something I'd do! 2 sets of keys means you can start the car and lock it back up while it warms up, right? So, leaving the keys in the door could SO happen to little cold wimp me! :)

Mother Nature's artwork is beautiful in your tree photo! I think I'm going to keep doing Project 365-type things every year. It's fun and I like having that focus to challenge my creativiy! Edna, you definitely have the camera and the eye to do a great job on a photo-a-day project!

Thank you for the award!! You always make me smile when you mention The Chroinicles of Nani with your faves!!
