Snow Dog – January 30, 2010

 

What a nice end of the month surprise!  Over 6 inches of snow in my neighborhood on top of an inch of ice.  Not good for travel, but what a beautiful weekend God created for us.  Everything is pretty much closed down- schools and churches and many businesses.  I know the kiddies are having a ball.  Our 14 year old “puppy” Shelby used to be the ultimate Snow Dog, but not anymore.  She just tiptoes out, does her thing, and tiptoes back in the house where it is warm and toasty.  Here she is in the back courtyard in the snow. Isn’t she a pretty gal?

You may also notice that I haven’t gotten around to removing the Christmas bows from the rosemary plant.  I actually left them on purpose- kinda adds some color to dreary days.  If you look real close you can also see the Christmas lights on several of the shrubs and trees.  The back looked so pretty during the holidays when the lights were on that I just wasn’t ready to let them go.  Maybe when it’s time to trim again…..

I’m also sharing a couple of snow photos of my sweet great-nephew Anthony.  His mom tells me that he has loved every minute of the snow.  We’re so proud of him- he’s in the 3rd grade and so far this year is a straight A student!  He’s always been a shining light in our lives.

I hope you are having a warm and toasty day also.  And, as always, thanks for dropping by.

 

Blessings,

Happy New Year!!! and Merry Christmas! FS152 – Ann (Ardodd)

I know, I know, it has been a long time since I last posted.  It’s just been so busy- I just couldn’t get it all done. We were on vacation for three weeks and when we got back, we bought a new home and moved in- oh, the packing and unpacking!   At the same time I was trying to get my Cards for Kids Ministry started at church and hold a couple of Stampin’ Up! workshops and you know the work that goes into that.  Plus, and this is my favorite part, I was honored to be asked to lead a small group for our Women’s Bible Study and for Moms and More (young moms who are led by more mature moms).  I have absolutely every minute of it, but have missed staying in touch and sharing my humble creations.  My new home had to be altered a bit to accommodate my craft supplies, so I really didn’t get to unpack my stuff for a few weeks.  I was so excited when I finally got some ink and stamps out and made a few Christmas cards to demonstrate.

 

Ann, aka Ardod, is our very deserving Featured Stamper today on SCS and I chose to case this wonderful card.  I changed the image and the embossing folder but tried to keep it Clean And Simple- I love how it turned out and hope you do too.  I know you can’t see the embossing, but it is really striking with this great image.

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and celebrated the most precious gift of all, the birth of our Savior.
