It's snowing!!

Hard to believe we have nearly a foot of snow on the ground here in eastern NC.  That's really unusual! 

Christmas has come and gone again for another year.  I love Christmas but must confess it was nice to have lots of quiet time today with absolutely nothing to do!!  So I scrapped this photo me my mother and me which I think is a great picture of the two of us!

I used the beautiful Swirlydoos Dec kit for this LO.  The dark green pp is Bo Bunny NOel Stripe and the floral is IOD Night Divine collection from Creative Imaginations as are the two tags.  The cardstock is Bazzill.

I used fired brick distress ink to ink the edges of the circle cut which I made using a Martha Stewart corner punch.  Got this tech. from Lisa at Swirlydoos, TY Lisa!  The 4 red flowers are small roses with layered with 2 hydrangea flowers sprayed with red shimmerz. The red flower with the white stamen is a Petaloo, Magnolia and berries pick.  The holly leaves are sizzix cuts inked with olive and green Cat's Eye pigment ink and Forest Moss distress ink.  The butterflies are some I scanned from the IOD design and painted with Diamond Glaze to give them a little shine.  I distressed the edges first with my Distrezz it all and then dampened the edges with water and bent and shaped.  This was a great way to spend my day!!

Meanwhile the spoos were outside having a ball in the snow.  This was Nika's first snow and she was a little overwhelmed at first but she soon was right in the middle of it playing with Chena.
