Happy Monday!!! I don't know about you all but if you look out my back door at my table and chairs it looks like a huge birthday cake with lots of white frosting on it- it appears to be at least 6 inches. My evergreen trees are all soaked in the snow and if they had lights on them it would be the perfect holiday photo I must say so myself. The snow started yesterday afternoon, HUGE white soft flakes like you see in the movies and within about 3 hours we had all this snow. The kids were hoping for a "snow day" but that didn't happen- it is Michigan we can handle this much!

Onto the card, sticking with the snowy theme here I pulled out on of my only winter themed stamps and started on this. The paper is new paper that I found at Micheal's the other day: Christmas Cheer by K&Company. The colors are so vintage and yummy. I colored Kathy and her snowman with my copic and I am really thrilled with how they came out. I am always in awe at some of those other ladies and this card makes me feel better since I am no where near as talented as they are. The little flower is cut out with my SU 5 petal flower and then a prima is used, the ribbons are SU burgundy and olive. This is actually my submission for the Friday Sketch Challenge- didn't I tell you that I was going to get better at participating in those? Well I made 5 cards last night (not following challenges except this one) so you will get some goodies to see this week.


I also want to say thanks to all the ladies that have sent emails to get my address to send cards for the RMH Cause. Please join me in this Candy for a Cause which you can find HERE.
Stay Warm!
