Snow, snow, and more snow!  Winter comes in with a bang!  We were hit with a major blizzard.  Here in Barnegat, we got 21 inches of snow.  That is severe enough, but the winds were a major player in this storm.  It caused drifting everywhere.  The roads would no sooner get cleared and the wind would blow the snow back.  Looking out our back windows, you  could see drifts of snow up to or over the windows, while at the same time look at the "alley" between the houses and see practically no snow at all.  Next door, the drifts went up over the window sills (about 5').  In front, the snow was up to our windows and up to the top of our front porch. 

With all this snow time, I have had lots of time to scrapbook.  My daughter is here from the holidays and my girlfriend is too.  We had a great day yesterday and again today.  Tomorrow will be more of the same!

While reading emails, I came across the following blog candy:

Less than one week to go....

Christmas is coming closer still.  Wow less than a week away.  Where has all the time gone?  Where has the year gone?  I thought I would share one of my Christmas cards with you all.  I used the Cricut machine to cut the snowflake circle.  Then I placed packing tape on the backside of the snowflake and sprinkled red glitter on it.  It sure made the snowflake shine!  Next, I cut out cardboard circle rings 1/4" thick.(I cut some out using 2 different sized nestabilites and for others I used the Martha Steward circle cutter.)  I applied green glitter to these circle rings and used pop dots on the rings.  There  is a 5" piece of red cardstock under the snowflake card and I used an EK success border cutter to cut out my saying on the front of the card, and popped it up with pop dots.  I took the whole card front and glued it on a sparkly sheet of ivory white paper that I had folded in half.  I really like this card.  On the inside I found a verse about friends that ws in the shape of a Christmas tree.  I printed that out on a stationary sheet bordered with poinsettias. I then tied ribbon in the middle to hold the inside and outside together.    Below is a picture of the outside of the card and the inside.  Merry Christmas to all!

Christmas is coming soon.

Before you know it, Christmas will be here.  Have you gotten all your shopping done, or at least most of it?  I used to think it was difficult shopping for my children, buying the right present for them, but now that they are older, it is harder yet..and more expensive.  Lucky for me, they are no longer living at home and they have other people in their lives, so I don't go all out like I used to. 

A couple of weeks ago, my friends were over and we mad some Christmas ornaments.  It was a lot of fun making them.  We took glass ornaments and covered them with alcohol inks, blending color choices of our own choosing.  After that was done, I cut out vinyl numbers for 2010 with my Cricut.  We put these on the ornaments, and used glass etching cream to etch the year in the ornament.  I think they turned out pretty cute.  What do you think? 

Have a great week!

I love this card.  It was very easy to make, yet it looks so elegant.  I used a cuddlebug folder to eomboss the cardstock and then used nestabilities dies for the border around the title.

Cards for Children

I came across this website by mistake, but I am so glad I found it.  It is called Cards for Children.

I think it is exactly what is needed, so if you are reading this, and have extra cards, please mail them for the children's hospital.
