Wishing for snow

We very, very seldom get snow here in northeast Texas. I wish for it every year, and all of my friends think I'm nuts. There has got to be nothing prettier than a fresh a blanket of snow on everything. Just look at the Thomas Kincaid pics. Am I living in a fantasy world? Here is my snow card. The image is a Paper Inspirations stamp. The DP is Cosmo Cricket wonderland/pine cones. I LOVE this paper! Ribbon is some of the sale ribbon from Hobby Lobby (what a deal) as is the little silver ornament. thanks for taking a peak! Warm Winter Wishes everybody!

Old St. Nick

I really love vintage stamps, but then again I love any kind of stamps. Don't you? I think we're in trouble! I made a new friend recently that is a scrapbooker and she wanted just a small introduction to stamping to make a card for a family member. I just looked at her and smiled. Need I say more? Back to Old St. Nick. It won't be long now before we see him. For this card I stamped Paper Inspiration's Old St. Nick and colored with pencils. The DP (Designer paper) is Cosmo Cricket Be Good/peppermint. The sentiment is a sticker from Stampendous. Thanks for stopping by!

Farmhouse in winter!

Cold temps have finally arrived in Texas. Today is rainy and cold, and great stamping weather. Although any time of the day is great stamping. My hubby wishes there was time for other things when he runs out of clean underwear. Oh well, this card is a Impression Obsession image colored with pencils. The DP is Basic Grey's fruitcake collection. Ribbon from Hobby Lobby and the snowflake is a gift package decoration I picked up at Office Depot's after Christmas sale several years ago. Those are my kind of clearance sales! Thanks for visiting and Happy Winter Wishes!
