More Snow Pics and some cards

So, it is official.  We have broken the record for the most snow in PA in the month of February.  I don’t even know how much snow we got…just that it is a lot of snow.

Here are some pictures from my front door.  They had to abandon the snow blower and use the shovel to clear the walkway because the snow was higher than the snow blower.

I thought these snow drifts were so pretty.  They remind me of dessert pictures I have seen, but instead of sand, it’s snow.

My son, Marcus and our dog, Peanut, standing in the path they were shoveling.  You can really see how high the snow is in relation to him.

And, finally, some cards that I found time to make while being snowed in.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the card I made for my youngest daughter for Valentines day.  The stamp and patterned paper are from The Angel Company.  The sentiment is from Verve.

I made this card for one of my sons.  The stamp is the same stamp set from The Angel Company.  The patterned paper was from my stash of scraps and I think it is DCWV.  The sentiment is also from Verve.

Take the time to hug your kids today.  My son’s friend was killed in a car accident this past weekend and it has left such a whole in my heart.  He felt like part of our family and we will miss him so much.

Here in West Virginia, we also received record breaking snow, so I can relate to your situation. Are you feeling cabin fever?

I love the cards. The first thing that strikes me is your bold color combinations. Love it!

I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of a young person. My prayers are with all involved.
