Dashing thru the snow

Sorry I missed posting last night.  We lost our power and there were tornadoes in the area much of the evening and night.  We are supposed to get a rerun tonight and tomorrow.  Fortunately, not as bad as Oklahoma got it.  We did lose a sheriff and park ranger, while a number of others were injured.  Mother Nature can truly cause havoc.

Time to start working more diligently on Christmas cards.  I know, it seems like an odd thing to do when the outside temp is in the 90s, but what's a girl to do?

I bought this stamp at Simple Pleasures when I visited Margaret in CO last year.  It is a Poppy Stamps image and has a matching die (love it when that happens)!  I colored the image with Copics and Spicas.  The sentiment from AMuse is stamped with Encore Silver Metallic.  This dp is Provo Craft from 2008 (oh my) and cs is DCWV.  I used an MFT die for the snow slopes.  The image is popped up on the snow with 3M foam tape.  I followed the sketch at Always Playing with Paper. 

I am also entering the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Photo inspiration - SNOW!

This was a fun card to make.  Hope you enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by!
