It's snowing

Good morning. It's snowing (just barely) here in northeast Tennessee this morning. Yay! We have had an unusually mild winter so far this year so cold and snow are welcome. Cold to kill the nasty bugs and snow to replenish our water spring.

This card is an abstract of what happens here when it snows. There's a lot of pushing and shoving going on as my cats try to fit as many as possible into the windows to watch the birds flocking to the feeder stations. There are 5 in the den window and another 4 in the kitchen plus others circling for an opening.

I created a mask from Spellbinder's packaging to do the snow drifts. Use a dauber to rub Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue on the tops of the drifts. Flip the mask and use a smaller dauber to add The Essential Glue Pad ink and snow glitter to the peaks of the drifts. Add snow at the top with Inkssentials white pen. Stamp Warm Winter Wishes at bottom with Sky Blue ink and emboss. Mount to a prepared 5x7" card base made with Bazzill Bling cardstock. Stamp and emboss cats in window Image (Magenta). Color cats with chalks and use glitter gel pen to accent the swirls.

Hoping you are warm and snug on this cold winter's day.
