In 2008, I fell in love with a card made by Kittie Caracciolo (kittie747 on SCS) Her card was titled "Inspired Village" which was uploaded on 11/22/2008. I always wanted to case this card and this year I finally got a round to doing it. Thank you so much Kittie for your inspiration.
In real life, this card is totally sparkled with lots of glitter in the sky and on the snow but unfortunately, after several attempts, my camera is not picking up the glitter in the shot.

Oh, Kerry, this is so special. Your attention to detail goes above and beyond. I love your sewing and snow and I especially like the houses with all their different windows. This needs to be framed and kept as a keepsake!
Happy stamping to all you Splitcoasters who inspire me each day!
Kerry, I am thrilled that you were inspired by my 2008 card. You card is absolutely stunning. I adore the trees, soft falling snow and moonlight you created in the background. Your houses and snow are so sweet and your rick rack embellishment and country Christmas ribbon are the perfect finishing touch. Thanks so much for mentioning my card.
