*Winter Wonderland*

We woke up to a bit of a winter wonderland this morning. It's at the freezing mark (so not too cold) but you can't see the grass in my yard anymore. Thankfully the streets are clear so I don't think driving will be much of an issue. I was wearing sandals on Monday... and by Wednesday we can build a snowman!

Let me know what you think of my new set up for taking photos. In the winter the window I usually use for natural light doesn't get nearly as much light, so I am trying a set up in my stamp space. Did it work out OK? I kind of like those beautiful markers as a backdrop!!

I absolutely *love* this card. It is so simple and elegant, at least to my eye. I used my snowflake Cuttlebug folder on some white cardstock and accented it all with navy blue cardstock, ribbon and ink. The image is a Longfellow quote, a stamp by PSX. I don't even know if PSX is still in business or not. This is one of my favourite Christmas sentiment stamps though. In case you can't read it, it says "Silent & Soft & Slow Descends the Snow".

A fitting card for today.
