"Life Is Worth The Living"

I think this week is not my week! I had to go to Boise today a 45 minute drive for me. I went to JoAnn's to pick up some Christmas paper pads. I couldn't find them anywhere. I asked a clerk who said, "Oh, I will be stocking those on the shelves in a few minutes. After waiting one hour and still no paper I gave up and left. It is rather disappointing with rising prices that this is the type of service we get. There are other craft stores in the Boise area, they got my money today. A big shout out about "Customer Service!" To smooth my ruffled feathers I came home and made a card! (OK, it was a good excuse!) I love this image from Mo Manning, it kind of tugs at the heart strings! I colored it with Copics, added some fine glitter to the snow, polar ice to the muff, and a MS punch. I added a ribbon, tiny silver bells, and a candy cane charm.  I used a Spellbinder die for the CTMH sentiment. Another card for the Christmas card stash. Hope your day was filled with blessings.
My Song: Breath of Heaven
I have traveled many moonless nights
Cold and weary with a babe inside
And I wonder what I have done
Holy Father you have come
And chosen me to carry Your Son!
I am waiting in silent prayer
I am frightened by the load I bear
In a world cold as stone
Must I walk that path alone?

Stunning card. Love the image. Your coloring is fabulous. I have never heard of polar ice? Who makes it? Know what you mean about customer service. Have been going through that with Michaels here. I finally called corporate last week. I am less than thrilled with them.
