Winter storm warning...

We are under a winter storm warning. How shocking. They're not sure what's coming. 18" of snow......or 2" of snow. If you're closer to the lake, maybe just rain. Or if the temps drop slightly, ice. Whatever. I'm already sick of winter. LOL!

But I do like making winter cards!! Take a lookie at the cute Whipper Snapper penguin my friend Tammi sent me!! She also sent me some cute snowmen that I can't WAIT to ink up!!



Yep, this is Christmas card #4!!! I colored the penguin with Prismas & gamsol, & used Diamond Dust on the penguin's hat, the snow, & the punched snowflake. The papers are Basic Grey Two Scoops, & DCWV Christmas stack. The darker is actually more burgundy than the picture shows. I am once again trying to take pictures at night, in my dark rec room, with just an Ott Light. Not working so well. Anyway, believe it or not I stitched AGAIN, added some very wide organdy ribbon, & finished it off with a snowflake charm attached with some silver cord. I think I spent about an hour on this card, which may just be a record for me!! I might get my Christmas cards done yet! It's a good thing I don't have a lot of friends :)

Have a great night, & for those of you in the midwest, stay safe!!! This is supposed to be a HUGE storm covering many states so stay home tomorrow & make it a pj & hot cocoa day!!!
