Snowmen


Happy Saturday everyone! I am in the middle of making "candy cane bark"....like almond bark only I crush up candy canes in white chocolate instead of almonds...so yummy! (& even better...so easy!) Tomorrow is nuts & bolts day. We are going to a Christmas party tonight with all the neighbors (which really isn't all that many people, living out here in the boonies) It will be fun though...lots of food, laughter & friendship & maybe even a little sip of good cheer!It's snowing outside at the minute & quite cold (-21C) Brrr!! There are several blue jays sitting on the deck railing & they are all puffed up to about 3x their normal size.  These adorable snowmen from The Stamping Boutique would fit right in outside my window today! They are colored with prismacolor pencils. The CS is Bazzill, snowflakes are a Cuttlebug die & the lattice is a Memory Box die; I just noticed that one of the snowflakes has a folded up point...oh well! The bling is Recollections & the great sentiment I believe is from TLC (correct me if I'm wrong)
Whatever you are up to today...have fun!

  3. Hope you had fun at your party Renee. :-) I'm afraid your snowmen would melt pretty quickly here at the moment although it's supposed to drop down below freezing Wednesday. Your snowmen might be safe for a little while then. LOL Precious card. Hugs!
