Winter Greetings!

The weather lately seems to be so unpredictable, and no parts of the country seem to be safe from Mother's Nature's wrath! Here in the Windy City we've had a lot of snow that suddenly changes to wet soggy rain. (Not pleasant when you have two dogs who seems to always find mud!);)
My card seems to depict that snowy, windy winter weather that Chicago is known for.  
I colored it with Copic markers.  I added a glitter frame around the perimeter.  
It kind of reminds me of a window....
I created a stick pin with "snowballs" on it.  I just threaded took 3 pom poms, swiped a bit of glue around them, and rolled them in glitter. I added a bit of lace, string, and 2 gold jingle bells to finish my card. 
And totally off subject here....but cheer leading season has begun!  
The girls have new uniforms this at least my zillion pictures of her will be with a different color on!
Can you tell she is excited to get out there and cheer again? ;)
Her team is up to 8 girls and hopefully after the holidays I will get a decent picture of the group together.  
That's all for now!
Off to do a bit of last minute Christmas shopping tonight!
Have a great day!

I love these photos of Cortney...she looks so happy and vibrant. And your card is lovely. The snowball stickpin is adorable.

Court looks so happy and she is so lucky to have a mom like you. Your card is beautiful. It looks very windy and cold. Love the adorable image.

Love this card! I can feel the excitement in these little girls! Speaking of excited girls, your girl looks happy to be out on the court!

Hi Michele, you used one of my all time fave images - the little snow kids by Nister! We have the colored image in our Christmas Image booklet and I love the sample you made before with it as well. I actually think some or all of them are little boys as the young boys wore 'short pants' back then.

Anyways, I'm thrilled to have this beautiful sample made with this now digital stamp set to show people. So many people think digital means everything will look different and not be beautiful anymore. Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas!
