CAS(E) this sketch #61 and Reverse Confetti January Color Challenge

IMG_3649


Happy Monday and I hope you had a great weekend.

Last week was quite a week, on Tuesday our furnace wasn't working so I called in the gas company and the heat exchanger was broken and was emitting carbon monoxide into the house! So it was turned off and while they were testing that they found that our hot water tank was doing the same and had to be replaced, so off it went too. Did I mention it was around -27 C last week? {that is -16 F in American}  LOL So they left us without hot water and a couple of heaters.  Long story short, we got a new hot water tank on Wednesday and we used the heaters until Saturday when we got a new furnace.

Nice and warm in the house now. 

I have a card to share for CAS(E) this Sketch #61.
I am having lots of fun with my new Reverse Confetti stamps and dies. This card is also being submitted to the Reverse Confetti January Color Challenge.

Hey me again, how are you putting the sweet little heart into your posts, I LIKE that!!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Poor you guys! Ugh, that must have been torture, Tracey! I'm so glad everything is installed and up and running and no one got really ill from the carbon monoxide. Yikes!

If I were to have such coldness happen here (not likely with the winter we're having) then your outstanding card could keep me warm for HOURS! Already this is another 2014 fave!!

Enjoy the day and the coziness! Hugs, Darnell

You always have the right color paper, right dies, right stamps for any challenge you choose. Oh, and the right design eye. This is super!
As for the CO, it's so dangerous. I'm glad you found out about it right away. (Is that too many rights?)

KayM said...

Oh Tracey that is just beyond fabulous! LOVE all the neat dies you've used! The design and colors are perfection!!

Leigh Penner said...

Way to combine two of my favourite challenges, Tracey! What a fabulous card! I love how you added the hearts to the arrows!

Tracey C. said...

I love it!!! The hearts at the tips of the arrows, such a great idea!!! I'm SO GLAD you are warm again...things like that always seems to happen when it's SO COLD out. Lucky that they found the CO leak too - that's SCARY!!
