Winter wonderland...

















                            

                                        I am back... and just in the nick of time....we were without electricity for awhile.    I am sure you can see why in the pictures I am sharing.........just a wee bit of snow.  Now it is just getting plain c-----old so it won't be melting anytime soon.  Yesterday was spent with three good ole fashion shovels digging our way out.   The first pic is of my car.  We were lucky though...some were and still are without lights and water.  Our dog Riley is having the time of his life though...he loves it. 
                                     I got to spend a few hours today working in the craft room....warm and toasty. NO SNOW shoveling today.   I broke out some Wintery blues and had fun creating these for RRR.    For the last several years I have enjoyed creating "Winter theme" cards...guaranteed to keep the doldrums at bay lol.   Even though Christmas is not quite here it always seems rather sad when the decorations need to be packed away for another year.  So why not create a few Winter greetings to bring a smile to someone's face?  A nice buffer between Christmas and Valentines.   I used papers from graphic 45, Pretty Little Studio, and Echo Park.  Most of my stickers etc are also Echo Park.  I used ribbons  from the "beautiful blues" ribbon assortment, which if you missed it were our ribbon club selections this month.  I also added Sandra white crochet lace and open roses in white, along with white magnolias.  Well that is it for me.....I will be back with a post on Friday for Vintage Street Market.  Michelle got a couple of us together to share some Christmas goodies!

Oh how I wish we had some of that snow! I'm not loving our warmer than normal temps this December.

Thank you for your very kind words on my blog. It truly meant a lot to me.
