Calendar Girl Winter Wonderland

Please tell me today is the 28th!

Okay, I know it isn't. In fact, it's not even the morning of the 28th... it is mid afternoon. UGH! I'm late.

I have excuses. ;) You don't want to hear them, though. Instead, you want to see my card.

The 28th is the day for the Calendar Girls to post their monthly project. The theme this month was chosen by our own Miss February (Kelly) - and it is a good one. She asked us to create with a Winter Wonderland in mind and to use the colors silver and blue on our creations. We were also instructed to add a snowflake (or snowflakes). FUN!!!

Speaking of snow... we have had two snows this week. The day after Christmas got 10" or more of snow and yesterday brougth an additional snow of about 6". (I keep expecting Kelly to show up on my doorstep, since she often tells me she'll come visit when we have snow.)

Okay, enough chatter... here's my card:

The inside:

It was so much fun creating this card and I truly am sorry I'm late. Please be sure to check out the other Calendar Girls creations.




But, as I said, I had excuses. I thoroughly enjoyed Christmas, in large part due to the fact that all of my children were home for the holiday!!!

And I simply MUST show you the gift that my dear sweet daughter (my favorite daughter!) made for me...

Very pretty card Jeanette - worth waiting for!! I do love that ribbon - it is so right for the card!
Love the nativity set - that is so original :-)

Wonderful card, well worth the wait! I've been studying how you colored the snowman, taking lessons. Love the layout and the colors you chose, very pretty. Those snowflake brads are beautiful, and when combined with the ribbon the effect is very eye catching!
DD's nativity is precious. Is it paper or wooden blocks? I think it's very special and must mean a lot to you!
Welcome back!
