Christmas Snow!

This week's Shining the Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs (snow or snowflakes) was certainly appropriate for the wintry weather we've had in Wisconsin over the past few days.   We picked up about 15" of snow from Wednesday through Friday, so it will definitely be a white Christmas for us this year!

Here's Ariel measuring the snow on the deck.  The tape measure isn't quite level with the table top, but I think you can see it's a lot of snow!

Our 2 malamutes were also pretty happy to see a lot of snow!  They were not at all happy with the hot, dry summer we had.  They are finding this weather much more to their liking!  I took this picture while it was snowing on Thursday.  As you can see, there are 2 perfectly good dog houses, but these dogs would much rather enjoy the snow. 

OK, on to my card for today!  I used a combination of Our Daily Bread Design stamps for the outside and inside of my card.

I combined these challenges: 
Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light 135:  Snow or snowflakes
Simon Says Stamp:  Anything Christmassy
Papertake Weekly:  Pick of the Year (Anything Goes is my favorite!)
Basic Grey Challenges #84:  Anything Goes (I used Basic Grey "Jovial" papers)
Pile it On:  Embellishments
