Dear Santa...

Well friends, it's official... the snow has arrived.
It started as I was coming home from work last night and was still snowing by the time I went to bed. I admit that it makes for some beautiful scenery but man oh man, I just wish I didn't have to drive through it! Alas, I must head to work in a bit so it will be slow going in for me... I'm a "better safe than sorry" kind of driver once the white stuff hits the roads which drives some of my fellow commuters crazy, I'm sure! ;)

Anywho, enough of making you listen to me whine about the weather... time to move onto my card for today. It's a simple one using the 'Making a List' Pure Innocence stamp. I think she looks like she's writing a letter to Santa and had to pause for a moment to remember all the toys on her list. :) And can you believe this card is made without any pattern paper? Yep, it's all cardstock and old packaging from some clear stamps that I got years ago, which of course was too cute to throw away! LOL
So here it is, finally fulfilling it's crafty destiny and I have one less scrap in my scrap folder... yeah!

Ok, time for me to bundle up and get ready to face that wintry wonderland out there. Later gators!

This is so sweet! I love the colors. What a beautiful shade of green. It looks like the ribbon and the paper are part of a pack they go together so well. Well haven't gotten our snow yet. They say tomorrow. I hope you don't get too much. Have a great day and drive safely. Hugs, Lisa

I am going to out whine you - I wish it would snow here! Last week it was too cold to snow - below zero - and last night it warmed up enough for everything to turn to a big sheet of ice!
Your card is so absolutely sweet! I love it! :-)Traci
