Warm Winter Wishes & A Winner

Hello my friends~  Are you staying warm?  It's been so cold here in Maine, our oil delivery people are woefully busy delivering oil to keep people warm this winter.  They're so far behind that people are lining up at the gas stations with 5 gallon tanks to get deisel fuel to put in their oil tanks to keep from running out of oil until their delivery arrives.  I wanted to be sure to thank our oil company as well as the deliver guy himself for all their hard work and patience through this cold snap.  Just to get through on the phone with them, I had to wait a half an hour so I could order oil.
I used the challenge that my friend Linda is hosting,  at Merry Monday Christmas Blog to make my card using dry embossing.  The Memory Box Warm Mittens set comes with two different sizes of dies.  Just perfect for wintery projects like this!

I also put together a little goodie bag filled with treats to give our delivery guy something to nibble on during those long days of delivering in the frigid cold and trudging through lots and lots of snow.  

And today is the day I announce the winner of the giveaway I had on my blog for this darling stamp set from Avery Elle.
Random Integer picked #30 ~ Vicki Robertson.  Congratulations Vickie!  Please contact me with your mailing address so I can get this right out to you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Birgit, this is such a thoughtful idea for your oil delivery guy; I'm sure he will appreciate it so much. I love what you've done to the mitten with the embossing. We're using a heat pump in part of our house and it doesn't keep up very well in cold weather. Luckily we have gas heat in the rest of the house; just not in the room where I do my crafting. Hopefully some of this warmer weather will reach you in a few days. Stay warm!
