Snow Flurry

Hi Everyone,
 My heart goes out to the Hurricane Sandy Victims across the East Coast here in the USA.  I pray for peace in their hearts and strength to carry them through the devastation they are experiencing. 
My son and his wife traveled by truck from NC and they will be here in 4 more hours.  They said they seen snow and rain in the southern route they took, but nothing like what the northern coast received.

On a lighter note, my kids are coming soon (so excited) and I want to show you my newest card I made with Distressed Inks.  I used Snowy Tilda and surrounded her with snowflakes.

When I was young and thin I had this exact sweater and wore it with leggings, oh do I wish for that old body back now! 
I used Weathered Wood and Pumice Stone for her clothing and Antique Linen with Vintage Photo for her hair.  Liquid Pearls are dotted here and there.
I found the wooden snowflakes at our craft store and used them with a die cut snowflake.  The sentiment tag is a die cut and I used a clothes pin to clip in onto the card.


Surrounding the card is Tim Holtz's Snowflake border and the deer and 25 die cut also.
I used glimmer paper for the 25 and deer die cuts.


Here is the deer and a small wooden snowflake with a tiny matte pearl on it.
On the Snowflake edge die cut I rubbed stickles around it for a bit of sparkle.


The DP is TPC Studio Woodland Winter "Falling Snow"  I love the trees it looked frosty and reminded me of a Country Christmas.


Here she is again, just love this collection from Christmas Story.


One more look

Since my Adult son and his wife, 2 more dogs and my grandson will be here for the next 17 days! I am not sure how much crafting I will accomplish but I will try, I love to make cards, addiction needs to be satisfied.
I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thank you for stopping by and My Prayers Are With Everyone On the East Coast!
Kelly

  12. Hey Sugar Bear! Kelly I do believe this is one of if not the prettiest cards you have ever made. Honey this is out of this world gorgeous. And you told me it was simple - OMG - easy for you to say. I do believe this is an example of perfection!!!!! By the way, my daughter wore sweaters like this with tights when she was in High School. OMG - I just realized that my daughter is not that much younger than you! Hey to Tom!
    Love, Sandy

  24. An absolute stunner Kelly and every little detail is superb! I love your colouring and the beautiful layering of everything on your card, it's superb!

    Hope you're enjoying the time with your family and I hope it doesn't pass too fast. Hoping that everyone on the east coast are managing OK, it's been devastating to see all the damage, it's had a lot of coverage over here.
