Fortunes, cards and some cold tootsies.

We are staying at Peregrine Point Cottage at Mink Mountain Resort.
We have never stayed in this cottage before. It was a really cute cottage.
Lots of windows and a nice big dinning table. Those are the two main criteria on where we will stay. We need good lighting and a nice size table for scrap booking on....oh ya and a hot tub ;)

On the way to the cabin, Debbie and I picked up Chinese food to eat for supper.
Here is what my fortune said:

 Debbie seemed impressed with my fortune message.
I encouraged her to open hers:

She was like, well that's crap, lol. 

We enjoyed the hot tub.
It was pretty flipping cold outside. Even though it was on the deck, walking out in -15C with bare feet in a swim suit was crazy. Yes that is frost in the deck and snow on the ground.
Saturday night the temp was -20C, even colder, but once you get in the warm water, its heaven :)
Unless your friend dares you to run through the snow, then its really flipping cold.  I am a sucker for a dare ;)

So Friday and Saturday was an all day/night card making, creative, inspirational, loved every second of it paradise.
We made 26 cards between the both of us. Which I think is awesome, as at our last weekend retreat, I think I made the same amount of cards, but it was a 3 day getaway, plus a lot of my images were coloured already. This time I coloured as I went.
Here are our finished cards

Over the next few days or so, I will share with you my cards in more detail.
Some are simple (even though they still took a long time to make), and others more detailed.
We both challenged ourselves to use papers that we didn't really care for, and those cards are two of my favourite cards that we did.

I hope your Saturday was as creative and as enjoyable as mine was :)

Tracy :)
