Hi Everyone! How has your week been so far. In Maine this past weekend we had pounding sleet & rain on top of the almost 3 feet of snow. What a mess. We've had the weirdest weather here all winter so far. I wish Mother Nature would calm down a little and decide what she wants. I spend the whole weekend in my stamp room because we were told to stay off the roads statewide. Here's a card for you today for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge:

I totally love this color combination:

And what a great card front the "Ampersand Embossing Folder" created for me:

I cut out my shape first using the "Starburst Framelits Dies" and stamped the sentiment along the center of the ampersand and added a few "Pearl Jewels".
