2 Sketches 4 You and snow pics

So, since I love sketches, I thought I should play with Laura's Sketch #19 at 2 Sketches 4 You blog for this week plus I just received a package this week from Cornish Heritage Farms and this gave me a great reason to try out one of the stamps. I used a tree stamp by Kim Hughes from the Spring Trees set.
I stamped the tree with Versafine black ink and then colored it with Copic Markers. The middles of the flowers are dots of Pearl White Metallic Fabric Dimensional Paint by FolkArt/Plaid. The card base is Bazzill's embossed dot paper and I am SOOOOO loving what a cool card that makes.

My husband and I were able to drive through a good portion of Oregon in January and so we drove up to Mt. Ashland the day after a snow fall and I just have to share a few photos that I took. Let me tell you I took a million since I live in Southern California and snow is never part of our everyday life! Plus I just had to give my NEW Canon 50D a good try out!





In the photo below, the sun was out and so the snow was falling off of the trees and it looked just like it was snowing right then. I was able to catch that "fall" of snow.





Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
