This weeks card is a digi stamp from our sponsor Sew Many Cards called Oliver on Snowy Branch. Now take a look at his sweet face. I just had to put that sentiment "Let It Snow" with him as he doesn't seem all that happy about "Snow". This is how us "tropical weather" people would feel if we heard we were getting snow!!! lol I just love him!!!

Thanks so much for visiting me today. It has been so hot here I think I should make Christmas cards everyday with snowflakes on them. Wishful thinking on my part, but we do need rain at least!!! I will be back with more cards this week.

Hehe I did not thik of the Phidalephia Freedom song - I had this one in my mind:

Love shine a light, in every corner of the world
Let the love light carry, let the love light carry
Light up the magic, for every boy and girl
Let our love shine a light, in every corner of the world
It's by Katharina and the waves You can see the video here:

Anyway, I am glad to see you managed to finish your card this week despite it all ;o) I don't want to be accused for sabotageing the MM...
I love this poor owl of yours! It does not like like he want it to snow. Poor thing is freezing his feathers off - I want to take him home and put him in front of the fireplace with some hot chocolate. You have even added some wood to this card that we can build a fire with ;o)The snowflakes and the pearlswirls looks amazing up against the red. Great card as always my friend!

Oh my gosh, this is so adorable - that owl's expression is priceless. reminds me of my sister at the end of this VERY snowy winter!

You put such lovely detail into your projects, it is a pleasure to see what you're working on.

Carol, this is just gorgeous, all those fantastic details and border punches(a definate trademark of yours). I love the expression on the owls face and yes us tropical peeps would look like this if it snowed! Although I would relish in some cooler weather right now. LOL

I feel your pain about the heat and no rain Carol!! I'm so OVER IT!! So, I am delighted you made a winter snow card for this week's challenge. Ooooh, that cute little owl does look like he needs some cheering up, doesn't he? Maybe an extra punch would have done the trick!! LOL!! Your colors, details and the whole inside and envie are just to die for Carol. I LOVE IT!!

Absolutely wonderful. Lovely card. Thank you for joining us at Practical Scrappers.

Phyllis said...

Carol, your poor Martha Stewart punches must be feeling negelected this week!! But you have turned out an amazing card with out them. Love this little owl!! Like you said I don't think he really wants to say Let It Snow!! I would agree with him. Love to look at snow in pictures, but in real life - not so much!
