we had the first significant snowfall of 2016 here in central new jersey last night, though thankfully today it has warmed up enough to turn to rain and melt most of our accumulation. i'll tell you somewhere that i always LOVE to see snow, though, is on a papercrafting project, like these giftbags:
i stenciled the flakes with modeling paste on dark blue store-bought gift bags; then added sparkly ribbon and some stacked snowflake diecuts i made using a few more "surplus" color burst panels i made over the course of the last few months. for one reason or another, these guys weren't quite right at the time, but i never chuck them out, because i know that i will find a use for them!!!
another place that snow is popular just now is the simon says stamp monday challenge blog, where they say, "let there be snow", so i'm linking up with them.
in other news this week, the outside lights are on our house...
...we visited the annual gingerbread contest at peddler's village in lahaska, pa...
...had a most scrumptious christmas tea at teaberrys in flemington, nj; and made a few more eyelet outlet washi quilt cards, in order to call my 2016 xmas card production FINISHED and get the last few cards in the mail!
(can i get a, "WOOHOO"?!)
