Hi, There!

Okay, we got over two feet of snow here so what else can you do but build a snowman???  Not a bit of ground to be seen to plant a flower!!!

It looked really pretty on the trees etc.  and we were very, very lucky that we did not lose our power - but the shoveling that laid ahead was incredible.

My husband has the help of our three big grandsons, thank you Lord for them!!!!!

Now this image is adorable and I had fun coloring her up but I want to dump her into the snow!!!!!  LOL

We have another storm system heading our way next week - will spring ever arrive?????  I have to make some spring cards soon so I can stay calm about it all!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having better weather than this Northeast side of the USA!!!  Big Hugs and Blessings ~ CaroleAnn

  2. Fabulous card Carole I love the image and how you placed her behind the snow mound--our snow has gone but rain,rain and more rain

  3. Not much better weather here CaroleAnn - we have just got rid of the 'beast from the east' which disrupted everything last week. Lots of snow and it was soooo bitterly cold. I'm with you on waiting for Spring to hurry up ! Love your card, those colours are perfect ^_^ xx

  4. What a sweet little card! I could relate to your snow-filled feelings since we just got several inches, too! I'm so glad you chose to "go with the flow" and embrace it with this adorable card. I especially love how you did the patterned sky in the background. Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  6. Hello Carole Ann! please forgive me for a long silence! my grandmother 88years moves closer to our family, she needs help and care, so we were busy with moving . I enjoyed your latest works! how much I missed! you made wonderful bright cards with sweets, several cards with charming girls that you professionally colored, a cute spring card with mice for your sister, a few invigorating cards with delicious drinks :)) Thanks for all this beauty in your blog! but we also have snow, and it is not going to melt)) so we can also play snowballs instead of planting flowers! I wish you much sun and warmth!
