Let it snow!

This is the view which greeted us from our bedroom window this morning...
and this is the view out of my craft room window across the road!
Pretty or what?
Needless to say I shall not be venturing out today!
Here is a card I made because of the weather and inspired by this picture from ABC Challenges.






There are no cardinals in my garden here sadly, but this one, cut from Martha Stewart's birds on a wire punch, is perching in a Memory Box tree.
The snowflakes are cut with a cheapie punch and sadly I don't remember the make of the sentiment.




This one layer card using Stampin' Up's  Take a Sip wheel stamp was embossed in silver and coloured with Promarkers.
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
It's for One Layer Wednesday's Warm challenge hosted this week by the uber talented HeatherT.
Apologies for the rubbish picture. One of these days I'll sort out the formula for getting the right amount of light for my pics.




Stay warm and safe everyone!

What wonderful winter views - so pretty and no foot prints! I like it when it snows - there's a strange quality to the silence. Do you know what I mean?

I think your cards are super. Love the splash of red on them both!

Hi Chrissie - what an amazing sight to wake up to in the morning. Gorgeous photo. I love to sit and look at snow like that but hate to be out and about tromping around in it all cold - I'm a wimp when it comes to cold. I LOVE you card this week - it is sooo perfect for the photo inspiration challenge. Thanks so much for joining us at 'ABC' Challenges.

Wow ... amazing snow scenes ... and amazing cards to go with them. Love the little red cardinal ... so dramatic against the black and white, and the silver embossed steaming cups and mugs (definitely hot choc on a day like that!) are fabulous! Anita :)
