Let it Snow!

It’s still snowing…and b l o w i n g! School is cancelled and the boys and I are spending some time in the warm indoors after exploring the great outdoors for a while!  We have baking on our list of to do’s, so soon the house will be smelling divine!  Banana bread and cut out cookies, here we come!

While the boys were sipping their hot chocolate, I zipped into my craft room and made a super quick (3 minutes!), clean and simple snowflake card!  I just couldn’t resist!

Stamps:  Verve (snowflake), The Craft’s Meow (sentiment)

I stamped the snowflake and sentiment in Encore Silver ink and then added a single gemstone to the snowflake’s center.  The striped border at the bottom is simply a piece of washi tape!  You can’t get much easier than that!

I am linking this quick card up with CAS-ual Friday’s “Dashing Thru the Holidays” challenge


Now I’m off to get the oven warming and some goodies mixed up!  “The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful!  Let it snow!  Let it snow!  Let it snow!”

Have a wonderful Thursday!

    Oh I agree with Lynn! Little ones all bundled up and playing in the snow…mmmm too too cute!!

    Absolutely love that card! And nothing goes better with snow than the smell of freshly baked goodies! We're still getting rain here is SE Wisconsin. I don't mind too much!! Christmas blessings, Melissa. Bev

    LOVE this sweet and simple card. You know the saying “less is more”? TOTALLY true for this beauty!

    Oh my, those pictures of snow are so beautiful! While I personally don't like being out in it, I think it's beautiful to look at. I'm sure your boys are enjoying it so much!

    Thank you for joining in my 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge. I hope that you have a very wonderful Christmas!

    What a beautiful CAS snow card you made. I especially like that you used Washi tape. As I have become a collector, I am now trying to become a user as well. You are so lucky to get snow–it looks beautiful. Also, I just saw that I won your contest! I'll send you an email.

    What a great pic of your little snow guy! Your card is fab and that bit of washi tape is just perfection 🙂 So glad you got inky with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

    Fabulous card Melissa! I love that bit of washi tape. Let me tell ya, it sure looks cold. We have our cold front coming through and will have lows near freezing. Our high of 80 sure was nice today. Enjoy your baking yummies! Thanks for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

    How I envy your snowstorm!We are getting rain and wind (wicked sounding, high gusts), but I'd rather have the cozy snowed-in feeling. Sounds like you're having a fun snow day! Love that super CAS card you squeezed in!

  • Julie Hoffman Posted Saturday, 12/22/2012 9:30 pm

    This is beautiful Melissa! I love the washi tape and the grey on white color combo! Three minutes would be a record for me. LOVE THIS!!!

    The snow pictures are beautiful too! I'm hoping we get a little more than the dusting we have for Christmas.

  • Karen B. Posted Friday, 01/04/2013 2:59 am

    Hmmm, do you live in WI? We got loads and loads of snow on the day you posted as well! What a brilliant card with an amazing color scheme. Thanks for playing at CAS-ual Fridays!

    Love the simple gray and white card. So classy! And you're a contender! But then those of us in the know already knew that! Congrats!

  • Darnell J Knauss Posted Saturday, 01/05/2013 12:00 am

    You have the cutest little subjects for your photographic talent, Melissa, and the snowflakes piled up all around are very nice, too!! Congratulations for the Contender shoutout from CFC for your adorable card!
