As the Snow Falls

Hmmmm......"as the snow falls" sounds like a soap opera set in Colorado. Well it has snowed the past 48 hours. The kids in Cleveland were to go back to school yesterday, but they had to shut them down. As we are about 20 miles south of Cleveland we didn't get quite as much snow, but we had enough for Skip to have to go out and run the snow blower. I went out and shoveled the walkway by the side and front of the house. Brrr it was cold lower 20's and with wind chill in the single digits.

Skip was bundled up good in this pic of him with the snow blower. He didn't know I snapped this from the front door.

Since it was snowing I took some time to make this cute snowman tag. What I really like about Snow Much Fun stamp set is I can use it after Christmas is over. Great winter set. This is just simple masking. I used Lovely as a Tree in Garden Green, and the smaller trees were done with Earl Espresso. To punch it up I added some mica flakes to the snow hills at the bottom of the tag.

I don't think you'll be able to see it very well on the blog but I also made an overlay of acetate that was run through Northern Frost embossing folder. It is so cool! I used Tombo Liquid glue to attach the overlay as the glue dries clear. Click on the image to get a larger view.

I LOVE this, Karen! very a la Tim Holtz 12 tags for Christmas project. It was cute in the 1st pic, but the overlay is the icing on the CAKE!
