Snowed In

Hello my wonderful blog friends.  I am snowed in today.  We got 15.6 inches of snow with some 5 foot drifts.  My car was completely covered plus about 3 more feet on top.  It took my poor husband two trips outside to get everything shoveled and my car dug out.  I just got a call that school is canceled tomorrow too.  I guess I will be making more cards tomorrow too.  DARN! :O)
I made a card this morning for The Color Throwdown and CPS sketch. 

I am just in love with the all the vintage goodies from K and Company this Christmas.  The little pin in the ribbon is handmade.  It is a headpin from my jewelry making box with a couple of pearl beads.  I finally got a flower frog to hold my cards while I take pictures.  My boss at work sells antiques, so I purchased it from her.  If you are ever in Des Moines, Iowa, she has a booth at The Brass Armadillo.
Cardstock: Wausau
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey~Eskimo Kisses
Ribbon: Target
Lace: Hobby Lobby
Doily: Hobby Lobby
Chipboard piece: K and Company

Thanks for stopping by.  Are any of you snowed in?

Your poinsettia is so dramatic and stunning! I love the doily and pearl stick pin accents! It's got a vintage feel to it and it's just beautiful!
I can't imagine all that snow! Whew! We got tons of rain last night but the little bit of snow we got in PA melted already!

I love that doily! The flowers are amazing. It just pops, but the doily, I think makes it! :)

Thanks for your sweet comment. I truly appreciate it. And, yes, I did stamp the background with a damask-like stamp from the set I used. I used it on another card and I haven't stopped since! Making your own patterned paper is addicting! haha.

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you visit me again. Have a great day!! :)

Your card is beautiful. No Not snowed in now. I moved from Colorado in June to a hot place in Texas. It has been cool weather but I miss the snow!

This is so pretty Heather!! I love the soft and vintage feel of it....it is just gorgeous!

Hope you aren't snowed in any longer....although, I think I would love that! I am up in Missoula, MT and we just got our first big snow last night! But, not enough to snow us in!

Thanks for playing at CPS!

Lovely card. I like your big red flower.

15"????????? I love to have at least 5. But I must be very,very lucky for that. So, I'll go in Swiss, There the chances are higher. And the snow too.
