I am putting this card on my blog today because as I look outside it is snowing.  So far not sticking but haven't heard if it is supposed to or not.  I used all PTI paper and a Memory Box die for the snowglobe and star.  The snowman is from a long retired SU set.  And I colored him with my Copics. I made several of these and the later ones got some stickles around the snow globe as well.  Can't have too much glitter!

I think we as a nation have heavy hearts this weekend in view of the tragedy in Connecticut.  I pray for comfort for the town, peace for the families and rest for the souls who will be spending Christmas in Heaven this year.   I also pray for the safety of my own grandchildren as they grow up and our grown grandchildren as they go to work and school daily.  I would love to go back to the 50's where things were safe and the most violent thing we saw on tv was Gunsmoke and Roy Rogers.  Maybe our leaders should think of how we could go backwards instead of rushing ahead.  Some things weren't so bad in the old days.

Until next time.... Happy trails to you.



  1. And I'm the lucky recipient of this really great card! Love it, Sheri!!!

    I don't even know how to express my feelings about what happened in Connecticut last Friday. I heard about it just before I went to spend time with a 5 year old granddaughter at her Pre-Kindergarten classroom. And when she saw me come into the room she ran and hugged me so tight - it was like she knew I needed it. My heart just aches for the Newtown CT community!

  2. LOVE, LOVE this card! The colors are AWESOME and you creative design ROCKS! WELL DONE!

  3. This is such a sweet card - I'm not crazy about snowmen but this one is exceptionally cute!

  4. That's a cute card. I love the snow globe. I still tear up when I see something about all the lives lost in Newtown.

  5. Oh I love the globe!! Also, I can see the glitter around the card. So pretty!!

    I read that one of the boys had a twin sister. I feel so bad for his family but especially her as she will feel that for life. She was in another classroom. So sad. Now that hits close to home!! Hugs!!
