Need a hug?

Good morning sketch fans!  So sorry my post is up a bit late; I put in a 14 hour day yesterday and then had a treacherous drive home.  It is cold, cold, cold here!  I found my car coated with ice, which took awhile to clean...by the time I was done, my fingers were numb.  Then I hit the icy road for home and had to deal with blowing snow as well.  I was a bit into the drive and decided maybe it wasn't such a good idea, but had to keep going.  I was trying to keep pace with the semi in front of me so I wouldn't loose sight of his tail lights but was afraid to drive as fast as he was.  I finally made it to town and ran into the worst white-out of the trip...there is an open field...not good!  After showering and talking to hubby and the kids, I sat down...and fell asleep!  What a day!

Back to this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch....  Debbie has chosen our sketch and Doodle Pantry is our sponsor.  I went with Vintage Bear and shabbied my card up a bit...I really do like using my distressing tool...there's just something fun about it!  LOL  I embellished simply with Swarovski flatbacks and a button.

Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Raspberry Fizz and Smokey Shadow, Echo Park DP
Embellies: PTI Raspberry Fizz Button, Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Black Diamond", Gray Grosgrain Ribbon (my stash)

Thank you for stopping by!

Glad you are safe! Sounds like an awful drive home!! My husband grew up in Davenport and we lived in a small town near there for a couple of years when we first got married. I never did get used to the wind blowing ALL the time!!

Your card is beautiful!! This bear is adorable and I really like the image slightly off the main panel!
I'd love to have a Distrezz It All but can't justify the price!

Very cute card, I love all the pink and the adorable bear.

What a horrid day! I'm so glad you're safe. We live on a marsh, and driving on the highway there is often treacherous - quite often they close the highway during even moderate snowfall because the wind gusts over 100km/hr there on a NICE day!
I know I keep saying it, but honestly, every time I distress I try to channel you :) You make it look FABULOUS every time!

Wonderful card Angela! Love the distressing with the vintage bear image! Is there any where in the country that is warm now? I think we may hit 20 here today, woohoo heat wave! Can't remember when the kids had a full day of school without a two hour delay.

Boy, ice is not what you want to deal with after working 14 hours!

Your card is adorable. That is a very sweet teddy.
