This is a great day for some Hot Cocoa on a Stick!

Well, we are officially 'SNOWED IN'! and lovin' it! There are blizzard like conditions and it's beautiful! Since my hubby works from home, we don't need to leave the house. I took inventory of all our country neighbors and everyone is tucked in with lots of food (bread & milk) and their woodstoves burning! It's a happy place to be!!

I'm sure all the 'boys' will be out tomorrow with all their 'toys' (tractors, plows & front-end loaders) and dig out the neighborhood! LOL

The kids had cleaned off the deck in anticipation of this upcoming snowfall!


Since I'm safely tucked inside, I'll be crafting the day away!

Here's a little set I had fun making! Remember, if you use RIBBON on your creation, you qualify for the CREATIVE BELLI challenge!!!! (link up your creation before the next challenge is posted-Feb 17th)

Stamps: Sweet & Sassy Digital (Benjamin Bunny)
Papers: SU! cs, DP is scraps.
Ink: SU! Classic blk pad, SU markers,
Other: CM cutting system, ribbon from stash.

ALSO....if you use an ANIMAL and a digital element please come play with us at the Digital Tuesday challenge!

Holly said...

wow, that's a snowfall! We only got 4 1/2 inches, but that's a lot for us - so much so that the snow fell on Sunday and schools are still out today!

I love your little bunny card and book mark! So cute!

Anki said...

Starting to look like Sweden ;-) We've had too much snow though - roofs have caved in due to the weight of the snow - so just make sure that you don't get too much. Happy crafting! Kram - Anki

Your card & tag are adorable. Looks like you got socked with about the same amount of snow we got hit with. YUCK. Enough of that white stuff already. All I wanted was enough to make it pretty. Now it's freakin' glorious. Just glorious.
