Butterflies of Winter

With a major snowstorm headed our way in the next couple days, I’m feeling some creativity brewing inside and I’m kinda likin’ it!  🙂  As much as I’m ready for spring, there is still something rather exciting about a big snowstorm on the horizon!  Granted, I’m betting school is going to be closed and dear husband won’t be in a big hurry to get into work (although, we’re lucky to have his work less than five miles away from us now!).  There’s nothing like being snowed in with a fire in the fireplace, warm baked goodies to munch and a little family to love!

I made this card for today’s Try a New Technique Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.  It also qualifies for the Clean & Simple Challenge a couple weeks ago!
