Got Ya

Greetings, after four storms we now have over 2 feet of snow on the ground.  We have been snowed in for days now.  Last night the county snowplow came and cleared the streets.  My husband spent hours clearing one side of the driveway.

I watched a fun tutorial about making trees by mixing glue and white paint in a small bottle.  After you get your trees the way you like them you then coat them in glitter.   So I thought I would give it a try for my background trees.

Link to tutorial

Materials:
Impression Obsession - Girl With Watering Can
Martha Stewart - Cardinal punch
Memory Box - Gentleman Leaping (arms only)
Papertry Ink - In the Meadow
Box covered with over 2 feet of snow

On the left side of picture is a 2 foot long icicle

  6. Fabulous card Diane and the trees have worked beautifully. I do love what you create with your dies.
    That's some amount of snow, it certainly looks marvellous in the photos, but not so good if you're snowed in, take care and keep cosy, Kate x

  14. Hello Diane! This card is pure joy! I'm wearing my grandmother's red raincoat today and it has been sleeting all day. Her favorite was the red bird. I cannot imagine living in snow like you do, but think it is so beautiful. Thank you for your sweet and encouraging comments on my blog. Big hugs, Autumn

  20. Wow, those trees are spectacular! I must give this a try! And what a crazy amount of snow! Honestly, we've been quite snowed in as well - more snow in last two weeks than we've had all winter! And it's been awfully cold. Glad to know it's come to a stop and hope it melts soon!
