we got snow!

Hello my blogger friends! We had a great time on vacation but I'm SO glad to be home too! I'm having kind of a hard time getting back into the swing of things at home but I know it will only take me a couple of days and bam...I'll be good.

Today, at my house, it snowed. Nothing really stuck anywhere but it was still kinda pretty to see. This bird is from a new release from SNSS called Cozy Feathered Friends. When I first saw this set I knew I had to have it as my dad lives in Wisconsin and he really dislikes snow. The sentiments in this set are so cute! Go see the set HERE.

The patterned paper is SU!'s new Frosty Day DSP and the layout is this weeks sketch from i{heart}2stamp. You can find that HERE. I used some Faux Snow that I got at Cornish Heritage Farms and also some fun flock for the pom pon on his hat. The green on his chest is really a little vest (couldn't you tell that? lol!) to keep him warm.

Did you see something new on my sidebar? Yep, that is right! I made it onto the Sweet N Sassy Stamps Design Team! Woohoo! I was so happy and honored to be chosen. My term officially starts on January 1st but I'm sure you'll be seeing lots of fun SNSS between now and then! Thank you Korin for the opportunity to represent your wonderful company!

Kyler has school off today and Jon just a 1/2 day so it will be interesting to see how much I can actually get done but I can tell you that I already have my Page Plans card for Sunday all set to go. I do have to start working on my stamp club cards (but I already know what I'm going to do...does that count?)...yeah...I guess I'll be busy...lol!

I hope that you all have a super day whatever it is you have planned...see you tomorrow!

Oh, snow? I'm wearing shorts today... and we had a "cold" front come thru last night! LOL!

Love your card... I agree totally with the sentiment! Winter is for the birds, but your card is not!

lol~

Congrats on yet another DT coup! You's a rickin', Miss! Love the card! We had 2 feet of snow last week (since melted) so excuse me if i feel no sympathy for your "skiff" of snow...LOL! BTW, in my mind, it counts if I have the class planned in my head...
