Yesterday we had a huge snowstorm so I had to turn off the computer because our power was flickering. Thankfully, we did not lose our electricity like so many other areas did. I'm a bit behind in my blog visiting (again!), but I'll get around to see you soon! I've shared some snow photos below!
Today my card features a squirrel! I named him Chippy! Chippy has received lots of love letters and cards in his mailbox! I coloured sweet Chippy and cut behind his paw to insert the love letter (there's an apple behind there hehe!) and then fussy-cut. For the sky, I made a DIY stencil with a cloud die and then sponged with Distress Ink. The mailbox and love letters have all be been edged with Distress Ink as well. All supplies are listed below.
- Digital image: Craftin' Desert Divas - Apple of My Eye
- Colouring medium: Prismacolor pencils
- Dies: Mailbox, love letters (Cottage Cutz Kitty Love Mail), Forest Border (Lawn Fawn), Stitched Landscapes (Poppystamps), Simple Banner (Poppystamps), Delicate Cloud Border (Poppystamps - used as DIY stencil), Scalloped Stitched Frame (Gina Marie Designs)
- Distress Inks: Pumice Stone, Victorian Velvet
- Other: Heart punch (unmarked), Signo White Gel Pen (freckles on Chippy), ballpoint pen (to doodle addresses on envelopes)
Here are some photos showing our snow. We could barely get our front door open - that's about 3 feet of snow on our front step!
There's my car under all that snow!
Another view looking out our front door!
This is our back deck, looking out the patio door!
