Oh, the weather outside is frightful...

but the fire is so delightful
and since we've no place to go
let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

OMGoodness folks, you know that snow that I was thinking couldn't possibly start falling yesterday? Well it DID! It started dumping on us in the morning and hasn't let up yet. My poor little yorkie is finding it hard to go outside and do his business when the snow is deeper than he is tall. I know, I know TMI but this is just ridiculous! Luckily for me I have no where to go so I'll just hole up and enjoy not having to go out into the storm. :)

So as you can see I've had some more fun altering stamps with this one. What can I say, I like the challenge of seeing how many regular stamps I can make work for a holiday card. This time I stamped up one of the Miss Anya's from the original set and and then gave her Rain Miss Anya's clothes so that she would have a coat and some boots to keep her warm while she goes out to do her last minute gift shopping. Sure, a mini skirt is probably pretty impractical but she just can't help but want to be stylish even in the winter weather. ;)

Well, it's time for me to go heat up some cocoa and turn on the Christmas tunes... I'll let you know if I'm able to dig myself out of all this white stuff tomorrow, LOL!

A very happy, bright and cheerful holiday card! At least when it snows you have the perfect excuse to stay in and craft til your hearts content. It's yucky weather here - very cold for Alabama and so windy and gloomy. No pretty stuff!

Great card Amy. I think Miss Anya looks adorable. As for the mini skirt, you have to be able to look stylish when you are inside the mall and shopping your heart out. lol....I just love the colors on this card. Great, great Job! Stay warm and snuggly today. We didn't get that storm, but we are suppose to soon. As of right now it is foggy and about 34 degrees..It is really weird to think it is warmish out. Have a great day off. Hugs, Lisa

Fabulous! I love these alterations!! As far as the mini skirt - she is a teenager, right? Living here in Alaska, my DH and I have noticed that there are lots of Super Heroes living here - they all seem to be teenagers and their super power is immunity to cold! :-)Traci
