Winter Wonderland

We received a light dusting of snow yesterday. The blue spruces are lovely in the winter, even majestic. They block the wind, provide habitat for birds and provide a beautiful backdrop for our garden. I have many fir tree stamps, the weather gave me an excuse to drag them out. Since I started this post, the weatherman has predicted 6 – 8” for our area and it’s been snowing most of the morning. It's a good thing the house is warm and I have a HUGE pot of chili ready to simmer for the second day. This card was created with: Inkadinkado Fir Tree Stamp embossed with silver embossing powder and inked with Tim Holz Distressed Inks - Faded Jeans and Pine Needles, Great Impressions snowman and penguin stamp colored with copic markers: BV23, BV20, W5, C00, R27, YR16 – faces were chalked, Whipper Snapper Free Snow sign was colored with E35 and E37, sign, phrase and snowballs are from the Whipper Snapper Snowman for Peace set. The background paper was cuttlebugged with the Dotted Swiss folder, the star is a spellbinder die cut with AC Specialty Paper Foil-Gold, card was sprinkled with Polar White flowersoft ; copic spica clear was used on the hat, scarf and snowballs.
