Snowy Monday

With much of our nation blanketed it snow today, I reached for my Kitchen Sink Multi Step Snowy Pines to create this week's cards. It has been over 9 years since we have had any snow here on the Texas Gulf Coast so we get kind of excited by even the prospect of snow. Although our temperature will drop into the twenties tonight, no snow is predicted so I just had to create my own today.

10 Minute Card

This is a simple one layer card stamped and sponged with a bit of masking.

10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More Card

With my extra 10 minutes on this card, I clear embossed the trees and the moon so I could get a darker sky. I added glittery stars in the sky with my Spica pen and added a few layers to frame the images. This will be my daddy's birthday card next week.

  1. What a beautiful scene, Lynn. I love them both. Those poor folks in the minus degree temperatures are in my prayers today.

  2. Your one min. cards are always so stunning.

  3. Love them both, but I have to say your 10 minute more card is spectacuar! This set is perfect for creating a masculine birthday card, especially for someone born in winter.

  4. Sad, but no snow here either! Maybe someday. We are suppose to get a little cold though!
    Love these! They're both so pretty and the trees look real. Gorgeous card!

  5. I'd be happy to send you some snow along with some very cold weather! Wonderful cards but hands down, the second one is fabulous!

  6. Oh this is just beautiful! Love the soft feel to both, it's like we are there looking into the scene! It's chilly here in Miami (that ONE day a year we get winter!) so I'm enjoying it muchly! x0x0

  7. What a beautiful scene, Lynn you have certainly created two fabulous cards.

    Hugs Diane

  8. WOW!! So stunning Lynne!! I love the scene you've created, but the 10 minutes more really adds a WOW factor! :)

  9. Ditto what Vicki has said Lynn......these are stunning. I love the beautiful snow and those deer. The second card really wins my heart the pop of extra color and framing part of it really sets it apart. Happy NEW Year! xx

  10. I'd love to be able to say "no snow" - LOL!! At least we don't have any now...for a while. I love the silver accents on the second card...both are amazing as always.
