Still No Snow

I cannot believe that we have made it (well, almost made it) through December without any snow this year. For the past two years we have had snow in the first week of December. We must be one of the few states in the Union that haven't had snow yet (not in Northern VA, anyway). Seriously, even Texas has had snow!

So, in the spirit of winter fun that we are not having, I thought I'd share a quick card that at least conjures the feeling of snow and winter.


I used the stamp-off technique to create the faded trees look in the back. I also was practicing my colored pencils techniques that Julie does so well. I had a brief tutorial from her when I was in Seattle last month and felt that I really needed to practice. I like what I've got so far, so you may just see more in the future.

card info: notecard, deer and tree stamps, ribbon, sentiment by A Muse, Koh-I-Noor pencils, glitter by Stampendous, quickie glue pen.
