watch out for yellow snow and ice...


Good morning everyone I hope the storms didn't cause too much damage or stress for whoever was affected...isn't it terrible about the people who lost their lives in the storm...things can be replaced or repaired but people cant, my heartfelt sympathy goes out to those families and loved ones...it was very very wet here but no storm thank goodness so we got off lucky I think...I'm taking the next few days off as we are having family problems here and I need to put all my efforts into my family for a few days but will be back Friday for a post...life just plods along doesn't it then something happens to knock you off your feet...so picking everyone up and dusting them off is called for I think...right now onto my card for today...you know what they say about avoiding yellow snow and ice don't you lol, but I couldn't resist using more summer papers for a Christmas card and yellow was the colour of choice...this beauty is from Sugar Nellie and is called Wish Upon A Star...shes the perfect Christmas fairy image don't you think...I coloured here with my distress inks and yep more and more glittered needed lol...I just cant resist lol...the glitter is Stickles Glitter Glue - Star Dust and the gorgeous papers I used are from the Kaisercraft - Elegance 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad...lush colours isn't it, the glitter glue and papers are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I punched some snowflakes with my massive Martha Stewart punch and finished my card with a yellow gingham ribbon bow...I made the sketch up as I went along but am entering it for the Scrapping 4 Fun Challenge, My Creative Moments challenge and the Christmas Stampin' all Year Long Challenge too...things to do and people to see today so I need to get my war paint on, I don't put the bins out without it these days lol...whatever your up to today stay safe

Beautiful card, as always! It's impossible for you to create anything else. Saying a prayer that the problems will be smaller than they first appear & ones that can be fixed to everyone's satisfaction.

She is a cutie. I gave up on the war paint and hair dye when I retired. If God likes me this way, who am I to change it. That is my excuse for laziness and I also avoid all mirrors now too. Good luck on the mending. Your card is a sweetie. Thanks for the wise warning about yellow snow. you are a very smart lady.
