We ended up with 3.9 inches of snow and now we have bitter cold. It is a minus 12 wind chill factor with a high of 23 today. The driveway is plowed but it leaves ice and it is sloped so I'm not going down to take out the trash or get the mail. All my Christmas deliveries have been made to the door so I am ready to wrap (or is that rap?). Rapping while wrapping will be fun! My craft room is so messy, worse than it's ever been with stuff all over. You know what they say - Craftings messy, clean it up!

Today's card is a Memory Box Drop Ornament inlaid with a Memory Box LaRue Ornament die. It is a pretty big die so that is pretty much the card front. It is cut from silver glitter paper and I used silver thread for the hanger. The paper is Kaiser Craft. Be kind to one another.

This is so elegant and beautiful, Brenda!! I love the gorgeous ornament!! It makes a perfect focal point!! It was eight degrees this morning with wind chills in the negative teens this morning. Ugh. Thankfully we only got a dusting of snow. The roads weren't too bad. Gosh, I can't wait for spring!! Have a great day my friend!! Big hugs :)

Gosh. That is rather a lot of snow in one go. We did the christmas food shopping today as all the dates are well past christmas. If its not in the fridge or the freezer now we go without. The Doc made sure he had a new bottle of Bourbon which is now locked up with the key round his neck for safety!! Those pesky elves will stop at nothing.
I love the large die cut bauble which is all the decoration your card needs. looks lovely in the silver. Hugs Mrs A.

Ooooh, this is a schparkly delight, Brenda! I'll bet it is so fun to turn it this way and that to catch the light! I'm glad you are going to stay in, stay safe, and stay warm ... just enjoy the beautiful white Christmas and let everyone come to you! Or at least come and get you! Happy Holiday hugs! Darnell

Good decision not to go down the driveway! Icy here, too, but where there's snow I can walk without slipping. Gorgeous, shimmery card! Happy Holidays & yes, I have plenty of coffee so come on over on your magic carpet--they fly above the ice--haha!
