PAPER CUTS #48 and challenges all in one

Heheheheheeee....so we HATE to stay inside when it snows. We bought our very first home back in 1975 "without" the realtor because he would not drive in the snow, during a blizzard. So, yesterday was no different. We shoveled out and decided to head out to see all the wonder and quiet.....all was going very well, THEN we decided to turn onto the highway/expressway and as we entered the ramp our Tourig decide it did not want to go that way and we realized we would have to brace for a thump. We skidded head on into the end of the guard rail and wrecked the car. Oh, I just laughed but poor hubby was so sick about the whole thing......it was a brand new car mind you. LOL Oh well, could have been a lot worse and after all it was "our" fault for being out.....anyway the insurance will take care of the damages and hubby has a rental and all is well here today! OH and before you ask we are absolutely A-okay and unhurt!
So, I came home and made a PAPER CUTS CARD for today with a few little added challenges built in just for me with 1. Paper Piecing 2. holiday something, and 3. JUGS Have a great day! Enjoy~Donna

Thank goodness you're both okay. While the snow is beautiful it can be dangerous. Take care out there.
I can't believe you came home and made a card. I'd be a nervous wreck after an adventure like that.
Glad you're safe.
