... I wish!

Ah, snow. Around here, we can't buy snow before mid-January. My parents, who live in Texas, occasionally have a white Christmas. We caught one there once. In Texas. Yeah.

Last winter, we had record cold, but it didn't help. The storm that became Snowmageddon #1 at my sister's (in the DC area) sat here the day before and poured a cold, miserable 33-degree rain.

So, only a fool would go looking for an early snow here, but, you know, I'm just that kind of fool. A girl can dream, right?

With that in mind, here's today's entry:

This one's for the challenges at:
Tip Top Tuesday - Buttons Galore
Fab N Funky Challenges - Forget Me Not (Use a stamp that hasn't gotten any love in a while.)
Pile it On - Winter
Paper Play Challenges - Let It Snow
Stampin' B's - Snowflakes
Totally Papercrafts - Snow and Snowflakes

So, how's I make it?
This is a side-step card! You can find directions at Splitcoast.
Stamp: Penny Black (One of the first ones I ever bought! I had forgotten about it!)
I used a Cutlebug folder to emboss the white and red cardstocks. (CS is Bazzill)
Paper on the bottom rung is The Paper Studio, green print is K&Co.
Letters are cut on the Cuttlebug, "You're Not the  Boss of Me"
Snowflakes are Jolee's; buttons are Oriental Trading. Ink is Brilliance in Graphite.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I appreciate your visit and your comment!
OK, now, y'all. I know it's 70-something out today, but let's hit it anyway! "The weather outside is frightful, but the fire's so delightful..."

Have a wonderful week!
