Hello! Happy Wednesday! The weather here has warmed up considerably. It's still winter but after last week's freezing temperatures of minus 40 the minus 15ish is a lot better! Although they are calling for rain on Friday and really cold weather on Saturday. What a great mix! Ack! Two years ago it rained about this time of year and kids went skating down the street! Now that it's warmer I was able to take the kids outside to play in the snow. This year I got some snow pants for me so it really wasn't that cold! The kids had a blast. We walked down the street to the lake to sled down but there was too much snow and it was way to soft. I think it should be good in a couple of days! The kids loved going outside, I loved that they worked off to much energy, but let me tell you boy was I bushed afterward!
My blog friend Laurel started a new challenge blog Lawnscaping Challenge! I actually won some Lawn Fawn stamps from Laurel so I had to play! The challenge is to case the owner and designer of Lawn Fawn stamps herself Kelly Alvarez! I was inspired by this card here and I noticed that Kelly uses a lot of die cut shapes in her cards,or makes shaped cards so I used one too! And I am also entering this card into the current Simon Says challenge My card that I am sharing today is quite fitting for my adventures in the snow! And for what goes on around our house. We often see little bunny trails and have even seen a bunny outside in the snow from our window! The kids love it, so cute! which is animal antics!
I am actually sending this card for a little boy named Charlie who is in the hospital who Britta is collecting cards for. Please check out her blog here for more information!
When I made this card I could totally see one of the bunnies that we see going for a nice sleigh ride in the snow, you know when it's minus 40 whose going to see him having so much fun? No one would catch him! :> I stamped the bunny on white felt and the scarf on some stripey pp! I hand cut the snowbanks and ran my gray ink pad over it to add dimension. I stamped the clouds background by HA and the sentiment and tied some twine around it. It's fun to make a winter card because I still have a few months of winter left!
