Sweet Friend

Hello friends,

an other day off school for the kids here in Michigan. Some of you might have heard what severe weather conditions we have gotten this year. Today we did not get snow but such cold temperatures about minus 28 Celsius or 20 F. So school was cancelled for the district.

All week both of my kids have been sick so I guess its kind of a good thing that they are not missing an other day.

The card I have made is a rather simple one but I used a technique called “Dryer sheet” technique witch gives the card a more unique look. I took two photos I hope it shows for you on one of them. You can find how how to the Dryer sheet technique is done over on SCS.
Thanks ladies!

Beautiful work, I need to check out the dryer sheet method as it created a fabulous snowy background for Tilda. I love the postage stamp shape also. Love your coloring and look forward to your cards. Also your backdrop behind the card really enhanced it, I love the weave texture with your card.
Stay warm,
Kelly

Greetings from Louisiana on the Gulf Coast where school has been cancelled for 2 days and the temperature is 22 degrees F. Lovely card. I, too, am enjoying having the kids home for extra time instead of being out in the sleet.
