Dreaming of a White Christmas

Hello friends, and fellow stampers!


Everyone dreams of a white Christmas, don’t they?  Even I do.  But let me tell ya something folks!  Snow is romanticized in our heads and in movies.  People think there is something charming about snow.  Don’t forget about us having to shovel out our driveways at 6:00 in the morning just to get to work.  Heck, when I lived on Prince Edward Island, winters were “shoveling to get out in the morning” and “shoveling just to get back into the driveway after work.”


Young people love the snow.  I remember being in my 20’s and walking to church and saying hello to a lady as I entered the church.  I was feeling giddy with the pretty falling snow, and said to the lady leaving the church, “don’t you just love it?”  Her response was a clear “no.”  She added, “you won’t like it when you get to be my age.”  At that time I thought, “right.”  Well folks, I’m in my late 50’s and could do without snow for five months of the year.  I’d like to have snow for two months.


I’m no scrooge when it comes time for the Christmas holidays, and even I love to make cards with snow on them.  I love to romanticize while I’m creating Christmas cards, and I’m sure you do too.


I am so happy that Technique Junkies came out with some new Christmas sentiments.  I don’t have a large collection of Christmas sentiments so this Oh Christmas Treee, set of 4 fits the bill.

Thanks for stopping by.

Looking around for a fun technique?  I can help you out.  I have over 200 photo step-by-step videos and YouTube videos, right here on my blog

I am with you there, the older I get the less I care for it, especially the thick stuff, and icy days, I have fallen and banged my knees up bad and have had problems ever since. But those days you can stay inside and just watch it snow are pretty days! I do love the background you made for you snow fallen trees, Gorgeous!

A truly gorgeous card, Bethie. Snow is a BFD down here as you might imagine. But it’s a double-edge sword because nobody knows how to drive in it, no snow tires, everybody freaks out. Very dangerous. And that’s with only an inch or two, we are such wimps! LOL XOX
