I made two cards for CAS101...A Day in the Snow challenge. I am from Buffalo, NY...lived there for the first 30 years of my life. Snow...well, it's the way of life, there. The last time I went home for Christmas was in 2001, when 80" of snow fell in 3 days! My children and I were snowed in for a week at my sister's house, while she was in NYC seeing a play. My mom and dad braved the storm and tobogganed food,games and outdoor wear to us. It was an incredibly wonderfully memorable time...but now...I choose to stay in VA, and when it snows...as it did a couple weeks ago (and a whopping 14" for here!!)...I just get a big cup of coffee and spend time looking out the window at it!!
Thanks for listening:)!!
I made both cards snow with an embossing folder that I brayered with baja breeze. I layered the snowman on the first one...stamping him(or parts of him) 3 times for his nose and scarf(with SU dp). The sentiment is a combo of a Hero Arts piece of a stamp and the "wonderful" is from PTI. The window was 4 punched 1 3/8" squares with a brown layer behind. I edited this card, stamped branch and used white gel pen for snow on the branches. I don't really have any snow sentiments, but used a sentiment from Inkadinkado for this card.
Last time I used this ef, I had alot of questions about where to get it, so if you're interested, here's the link: http://cropstop.com/index.php?main_p...oducts_id=4114
Thanks for looking and reading!! Have a great Monday!!

Man 80"...thats a lot of snow epecially in 3 days. I bet that WAS memorable. I grew up in saskatchewan, where i remember a neighbors house they had to dig there way out and the kids were playing on the roof, but that wasnt in three days. I Love your idea. I have seen a few cards with pretty scenes out the windows but not just snow. That is so cool. I do as well love watching it fall,inside or out. This neat little card is so relaxing ,right on, thankyou for sharing,the card and your story loved it...:0)

Ok, I hadn't seen this card when I posted on your snowman card that I was sitting here looking out the window at... snow. And watching the mailman slip, skid and slide, trying to get to the top of the street beside my house. This is a great card, and fits today perfectly for me!
