Blizzard 2010

Like most of the Mid-Atlantic region we have had an unusual amount of snow this year and this weekend was a whopper. We spent the whole day Saturday shoveling to try to keep up with the snow, we ended up with over 2 feet. It's hard to picture that much snow, pictures really tell the story.

Aidan of course had a blast playing in the snow and helped shovel with his dust pan.

Anyway, with all the snow it did leave me plenty of time to participate in this weeks Stamping 411 challenge.

For this weeks challenge I decided to make a pretty simple card use the new Butterflies Embosslits that just been sitting on my desk crying to be used and got the colors directly from the Sweet Pea Designer Paper pack (how great is it to have so many different patterns of paper in one set). I also used the Perfect Polka Dot Texture folder and the Silver Hodgepodge hardware.

To top it off, do you notice the butterfly bling? I used the rhinstones from the new Easter Egg decorating kit to properly decorate these beauties.

So cheery and happy. Have a safe week as we all try to get back to our normal routines (but more snow is forcast for Tuesday).
Pin It!
