Hi everyone!! Well, yesterday we were "celebrating today," the last day of no snow...now, today, we are "celebrating the season," the season of snow and winter. We got our first official snowfall of the season last night, although, by midday, all will be melted. That's usually how it works where I live :) As winter progesses, though, we will get lots of snow that stays. So today's card, using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch, celebrates the season :) I had the SU tree on my mind again, sans buttons as it's winter, and all the buttons have fallen off! LOL However, I wanted the whole tree this time, not just the part that fits in the oval. After stamping the image out onto cream cardstock, I started cutting it with my snips, but stopped quickly as the branches are so thin. I actually finished cutting it with my exacto knife...first time using it with an image and was pleased with how it turned out. (btw, keep your blades sharp!) I also had purple and brown on the brain and, of course, snowflakes :) Lots going on with this, but I think (I hope!) it works. Hope you have something to celebrate today...leave me a comment and let me know!! Thanks for visiting :)
