no, we don't have snow but if we did this would be me

Doesn't she look like she's so happy it's snowing? I just love her! She is one of the newest images that Cheryl Alger has drawn for Squigglefly. The image is called Winter, and I made this card for two challenges.
The first challenge is the sketch challenge they had on Papercraft Planet yesterday, and for once I didn't vary from the sketch at all!
You will have to kind of think like I do to understand why I think this card also qualifies for Vicki's Saturday Spotlight challenge. Her challenge is to make something that depicts love without using hearts - well as you all know by now I love snow and I think the love this little girl has for snow shows through - so there! LOL!
I colored the image with copic markers and chalked the sky. Then I used some snow tex for the snow on the ground and also to dot the snowfall. I really like the texture of the snow tex - you can see a close up here

The sentiment was computer generated and I sponged some blue around the edges and then glued a punched and stickled snowflake to the end. I hope you have been enjoying the cards everyone is making with the new images - I sure have!
I'd like to thank everyone who said prayers for Ashley and her group of campers. They made it back safe and somewhat sound last night. Their original plan was to stay Saturday night too, but Ashley said Friday night was sooo cold (duh!) and when she got up Saturday morning she told the others that she didn't think she could do another night. She told them that she didn't want to ruin their trip, so she would go back and stay in a hotel for the night and come back to get them the next afternoon. They all said "no, we don't want you to do that. We'll just do a day hike to this big tree and come back".
So, she agreed to that and they started off. She said they came to some water they had to cross, and it was not really shallow water. They told her that there were two more water crossings to go through. She said she took off her boots to cross the water and she put one foot in the water and her foot instantly went numb and she knew if she walked through the water that she wouldn't be able to walk because she couldn't feel her feet, so she told them she couldn't do it and she'd walk back and wait for them to finish the hike. They all didn't want her to walk back alone (thank goodness!) so they all packed up and came back. She said she felt bad for ruining their trip, but I am so thankful that she had the good sense to call it quits when she did.
Truthfully I think they were all just as glad she quit too!
She said that when she was putting her boot back on she was tying her shoelaces and her foot slipped and raked over her fingers and tore one of her fingernails completely off. She's exhausted, but she is SAFE!
Now I'm off to see who today's featured stamper is on Splitcoast Stampers. Have a fabulous day, and thanks for looking!
