"To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake,
it is necessary to stand out in the cold.

-1. Shall I repeat that? -1. That was this morning's temperature when I left for work. With the windchill it felt closer to -18, and the high is only supposed to be 6 above. I just had to mention that, if for no other reason than to make my Southern friends feel sorry for me. (Hey! I heard that guffaw, Jana!) Seriously, when did I teleport to the Arctic Circle? I swear there were penguins ice skating in our parking lot this morning.

This is o
ne of the weekend's creations, made during a holiday movie marathon.

I was trying to use up some odd bits and pieces already stamped/leftover from other projects made the past few months. This card fits the SCS Sketch challenge, SC200, from a few weeks ago. The snowflake is stamped in Night of Navy ink (SU) and is from Studio G. It is punched out with a Marvy jumbo square punch, then mounted on a slightly larger square of blue. Ribbon is from Michael's, patterned blue on bottom of card from a DCWV Christmas paper stack. According to local meteorologists, we will see more snowflakes Tuesday night, possibly 3-5 inches worth to make up all that melted over the weekend. Joy to our world...

Who me? I'm too busy shuddering at the very THOUGHT of -1 with a windchill of -18. Brrrr...

Yes, you! LOL I know you too well. We had a windchill advisory in effect unbtil noon today - at these temps, it's only a matter of minutes before exposed skin succumbs to frost bite.
