"Y" Equals "Your Choice"

This image evokes all sorts of childhood memories. My family lived in a small house and it was heated with an oil stove. I can remember my mom and dad opening the doors to the stove and we kids would back up to the stove and get warm. My mom always made pajamas for my brothers and myself  out of warm flannel. I slept on a feather bed that my fluffed up each morning and it was loaded with homemade quilts that kept me warm and snug all night. Does anyone else have memories like this? So different from walking over to a thermostat and turning up the heat. OK, I have walked down memory lane long enough! On to my card.
I used paper that I had in my scrap bin and used a Spellbinders die to frame the stamp. I fussy cut the stamp and in doing so cut off several of the wispy curls. The stove I added some rhinestones to for a bit of sparkle. (I also added a few to the die cut.) A pretty pink bow and a vintage button completed my card.  You can find this stamp at our lovely Sponsors blog: "The Paper Shelter"
and she is called "Brrr...It's Cold" and you can just click on the links to go to the store or the stamp!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Baby It's Cold Outside (Dean Martin)
(I really can't stay) But, baby, it's cold outside
(I've got to go away) But, baby, it's cold outside
(This evening has been) Been hoping that you'd drop in
(So very nice) I'll hold your hands they're just like ice
(My mother will start to worry) Beautiful, what's your hurry
(My father will be pacing the floor) Listen to the fireplace roar
(So really I'd better scurry) Beautiful, please don't hurry
(Well, maybe just half a drink more) Put some records on while I pour
(The neighbors might think) Baby, it's bad out there
(Say what's in this drink) No cabs to be had out there
(I wish I knew how) Your eyes are like starlight now
(To break this spell) I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell

Patty, this is really a cute card and I love how you went down memory lane. My grandmother had and oil heater, Ice box (that you put blocks of ice in it), a cook stove that used coal and corn cobs. She also had the old round washing machine with the wringer on it. Now you have me going down memory lane.....good memories. Thanks for sharing your card and your memories. May you have a blessed 2016. Hugs, Ruth Ann
