There's Snow Time Like the Present...

Hello Friends!
This is what is happening outside my front door right this second...

...we received more than two feet of snow...

so we are all "digging out from under it.

Remember back in December how I made the Cupcake Box for my neighbor because he offered up his snowblower so generously?

Well, he did us that kindness yet again.

(we all have over one acre lots in our hood, our driveways are LONG...shoveling isnt an option when it is this deep and heavy, unless you have days and days and want a cardiac arrest. We have a plow for our John Deer rider mower, but something is wrong with Johnny...he wont start, and it isnt his battery...sigh. And it never snows this much, so we werent concerned and figured it would wait until mowing season. Murphy and his Laws decided to dump two (so far) record breaking snowfalls on us this season.) is the card I made our neighbor (plus sweet treats, but I wont bore you with those):

The lighting is funky, but the "Thank You" sentiment is heat embossed in silver and looks great in person.

Products used:

CTMH wht. daisy CS and paper from ctmh Aspen paper pack.
Stickles and prizma glitter, en masse! and some mica snow around the edges
silver paint pen (sharpee)
CTMH dimensional elements snowflake chipboards, heat embossed with clear and prizma glitter
ctmh rhinestone
tree (from little yellow bicycle) is heat embosses with clear and prisma glitter

It was simple and easy, but it looks very pretty and VERY sparkly in person.

More pix of more projects I worked on during the storm coming soon!



  1. We also got dumped on here in my neck of the woods, which is also very unusual. Are you in PA, MD or DE by the way? I took lots of photos but can't post them since my newer computer is giving me issues and my old computer won't accept my newer camera card. AGH! I am so frustrated! Anyway, your card is beautiful!Your neighbor will love it!

  2. Thanks Carol for the kind words.

    We're in (southern) NJ.

    Sorry about the computer situation.
    I have a love-hate relationship with technology.

    Have a wonderful weekend...and thanks so much for leaving me a comment. :o)
