Hello, Snow Girl

Greeting Card Kids is such a cute stamp set.  Every season I make at least one card using these adorable images.  For today's card I wanted a winter feel, but I didn't want to use the Christmas tree.  Here is what I came up with.


I was going to film a video showing you how I "lost" the tree, sparkled up the snowballs and colored the flower, but I ran in to a couple of snags.

Snag 1- No more snowballs.  We have had ice and snow and freezing rain here today (ironic isn't it) and I try not to drive when the weather is bad like it has been the past few days.  If it warms up enough to melt the ice I will go to town for more snowballs.



Snag 2- My house needed a major cleaning.  Over the weekend we moved around furniture and cleaned upstairs.  Outside we took down Christmas lights and moved the Christmas decorations out to the shed.  We also did a bit of cleanup outside.  So, today it was a matter of moving furniture downstairs and cleaning up all the mud we tracked in.  With Christmas all put away I felt the need to wash windows, vacuum around the baseboards and clean under the toaster in the kitchen.  By the time I finished that it was time to start dinner.  (and mess up my clean kitchen again!)


So, if you are interested in a video showing you how to make this card, please let me know with a comment below.  I'll film it after I find some more "snowballs". 



I'm excited that my house is clean.  That means tomorrow I can play in my craft room until it's time to pick up the kids from school.   :)  Oh, glorious day!!!

Creative Blessings,
Heather North

P.S.  It's almost 11pm, and I am finally getting today's post in.  I still have an hour to spare.  ;)
