That poof is snow coming out of the snow blower. You can barely see the tractor to the right of the poof - that's our hill. The road looks pretty clear, but I assure you - where it curves (upper left in pic) there was a good size drift I had to go around.
I know I've posted some pics of this lonely little birdhouse before - I would say the drifts behind it are about 15+ feet now. There are some bushes behind them - you just wouldn't know it anymore! And that poor little evergreen in the foreground - well, it's 4 little brothers and sisters are buried for eternity!
So the pic above - while it might look like just a hill - it's not. See that little thing in the middle? Where the bright snow meets the shadowed snow? That's a platform bird feeder that is normally about 5 feet off the ground. It sits just a few feet away from that lonely birdhouse in the previous photo. SO - the day that all of this starts to melt....I think we'll have a lot of mud to contend with....but it'll all be good! And those poor soles on the East Coast think they have it bad - at least their snow melts fairly quickly. I've lived in Connecticut before, I've experience Noreasters - this has been one continuous Noreaster since Dec. 10th! Do not complain New Englanders - you've got it easy! I am glad that the sun has been shining at least!
Well, that's it for the latest weather.....here's what you really came to see!
This little card I dreamed up - literally! at about 3:24am this morning. I think I layed awake in bed for about an hour thinking of how I was going to work this one....I ALMOST got up at 4:15 when I was still awake and just put it together. But I didn't. (I'm pretty sure my body is starting to prepare me for getting up in the night with the baby!)
I just love that saying....
OH - and here's the outside in it's entirety:
You could say it's VERY clean and simple! I like the fact that it sticks with basic stamping, and I colored with SU! markers (Cameo Coral, Old Olive and Close to Cocoa). The "LOVE is die cut with Nestabilities as is the Cameo Coral scalloped oval behind it. The ribbon is the snazzy satin ribbon in Old Olive - found in the current mini catalog. I've almost used an entire roll of this stuff, I just love it so much! Then I stamped the little heart in the corner for a touch of sweetness. The one thing I love about this card - it's a love card, but it's not Valentiney (yes, that is a word - I know Mr. Webster used it all the time!).
What do you think??? I love when you leave me comments, so feel free to do so!
