Big Snow Storm of 2011 = Cupcake Valentines Card

What fun! Lots and lots of snow! And being snowed in for the day! Well, sort of husband & I spent several hours today doing some heavy-duty early spring cleaning, and only got 3 small rooms done. But that sense of accomplishment is sooooo nice! And then I rewarded myself by spending the evening in my craft room making a card!

The picture on the right is me standing in the road not far from our house. I'm standing in one of the ruts that is about 14" deep! No plows came through until late in the day. But we didn't lose power during this storm so we have lots to be thankful for!

Now here is the card I made, a tent card, the first I've ever made. I would do it a little different next time so you can see the inside attachment better. But it was fun to try! There is a lot of sparkle on this one...sorry you can't see it in the picture.

This card is is going to be entered in a couple different challenges:

The "Cupcake" challenge at

and the "Valentine" SSCC at

(I think I will wait 'til morning and take a better picture in daylight, then I'll enter it in the 2 challenges.)
OK, its Thursday AM...not sure these are much better! But the color is more accurate.
