Delightful Thursday

Good morning and a big welcome to my blog.  When I got up at 0600 I looked out the window to see if we had snow but nothing there just so windy.  Now I am up in my garrett and I could hear the rain lashing down and when I peeked out the window it wasn't rain but snow! We hardly ever get snow here so its quite exciting.  The only trouble is I take my Aunt out on a Thursday and she is in a wheelchair so I am hoping it is gone by 11:30!   Anyway, the reason I am here today is to celebrate Thursday with a Delightful Thursday over on the Digital Delights Blog.  This is when the Design Team come up with some inspiration using some of Wendy's fabulous images available at the Digital Delights Store. Here is my card:

Items Used 
Image: Jubbly Giraffe available here
Sentiment: Baby Sentiments Set available here
Markers: Copics
Papers: Doodlebug Sugar and Spice, Centura Pearl and Papermill Direct
Dies: Dienamics Blueprints 14 and 6 and Stitched Oval Stax, Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop Borders, La La Land Heart Banner and Spellbinders Lacy Ovals
Embossing Folder: Boofle

Challenges I would like to enter:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Simon Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for looking and the lovely comments that you leave. I hope you all have a fabulous day and stay safe.
