My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Naughty Kitty - Sweet Sunday 55 - And Snow Pics

I'm sitting here today creating cards and watching the beautiful snow fall outside. That's only because I don't have to go anywhere in it. We've already gotten 2 feet of snow and it's still predicted to snow into the evening. So, as long as the power doesn't go out, I'm snug as a bug in a rug!


My card today was inspired by a sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 55.

I used a newly release Digi Stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called "Naughty Kitty"  Isn't he just the cutest with the dirt and plant on his head. The image was colored in with Copic Markers.

The designer paper is from the Caboodle pack from Close to my heart.
Matching ric rak and ribbon from the CTMH Sorbet collection.

The Hand Stitching around the card was done with matching embroidery floss.

Now, here are some of my pictures that I just took. It's been snowing for 23 hours and hasn't stopped yet.
These are not snow drifts. That will probably come tomorrow when the wind picks up. This is actual snow accumulation from just today. They expect it to snow into the night.
They have declared a Stae of Emergency in most of PA. as well as surrounding states.

This is my husbands car. He moved it off the driveway next to our granddaughter's tiny tikes play area. Both are burried.

This is the snow on the raiking of my deck. To the left is my fish pond. Who Knew?

This is my patio table and chair, nimus the cushions. Behind it is the snow on the railing.
