*Waiting For The Winter Wonderland*

It's a good thing I put on socks and shoes last week... the weather forecast for Calgary is ugly!!!  There is a chance of up to 10cms of snow tonight (almost 4 inches) and the temperature is going to fall severely.  We've been above freezing for the most part all fall, and tomorrow our high will be about -8C (17F).  And our nightly lows will be around -18C (that's 0F).

And from what I've heard, the long term forecast shows temperatures below freezing until at least the 26th of November.

I think I need to find my mitts and scarf too.... and probably my boots!

It's all a part of living here, but that first big snowfall and the first dip into such cold temperatures is always a difficult thing!

So, since we're looking at Winter in Calgary, I'm sharing another Christmas card with you...
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Tangerine; Classic Crest white
*Pattern Paper:  My Mind's Eye Colorful Christmas
*Images:  Hero Arts
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Tangerine Tango
*Challenges:  MTSC94


As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to play with Christmas papers.  I love this MME paper as it's so untraditional in it's colours...

Thanks for stopping by today!

What a beautiful card! It is such a lovely Christmas card with the sentiment front and center and the colors. Ohhh! How fast you went from flip flops to boots, ugh!!! I remember those days when living in New England, you know wait a minute and it will change.
