Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!


It is -8 here and the perfect conditions to "let it snow". They are calling for some snow in our forcast by the weekend...my kids are THRILLED!
Believe it or not snow is not a regular occurrence here on the west coast of Canada. We usually get it once and then it melts away into rain. So snow is pretty exciting here when it happens (exciting on the roads too with inexperienced drivers)...
I am having the girls over this weekend to make some pretty christmas tags and so I have all the "tag goodies" on my desk and couldn't help but play a little!
I picked up this gorgeous Webster's Pages Petite papers yesterday and this sheet was calling to me.
The large christmas tree was perfect for the fun winter scene I wanted to create.
I played along in the WT challenge today on SCS....we were challenged to pick a winter carol and incorporate it into our project....perfect! I'll be humming this song all day!



Here is a close up of the tune...it is a rub-on from Melissa Frances.
Here is a close shot of the stamped portion of my tag. This little fireplace scene is from "night before christmas" in the rummage bin from Cornish Heritage Farms. I stamped the scene then paper pieced the little girl with the candle over top as I wanted to color her jammies pink with my copics. I also used my glue pen and glitter to add ornaments to the tree and to jazz up the little stocking.

Now just waiting for the snow.....

Yvonne,
there is a great scrapbook store in Chilliwack called "Classic on Alexander" that is where I picked up the paper. You can also order it on-line at Ellen's store (link for that on my sidebar).
