CC Challenge #14 and some other things!

Snowy hello to you!! We got slammed with 11" of snow last night!! We are house bound for several days because we live at the top of an almost mile long driveway and our vehicles are having none of this snow business! I am experiencing a little bit of stress because the stockings are NOT all hung by the chimney with care! In fact I am not even close to being finished with my Christmas shopping or Christmas dinner shopping or card mailing or package mailing...LOL I will be really lucky if I can get down the driveway to get things finished up this year..oh well! What can you do, right?! There is a giant pot of chicken and dumplings on the stove and a cozy fire in the fireplace! Things will be ok! :) I will hold off on the stress until later because right now I am enjoying being stuck inside too darn much! :)

I have lots to share with you tonight! :) First of all is my entry for the CC Challenge #14! This was a toughie! This challenge was hosted by Jennifer B! (Hiya Jennifer!!) and the guidelines were:

My challenge to you is to use LSC249 from SCS, White Christmas. I've always wanted to do a card like this, and now it's on SCS also. The deets are:

* Use only white card stock
* You cannot use patterned paper, unless it's all white
* Use only white or clear embellishments
* You can use one color of ink, but nothing more
* You cannot do any coloring, such as copic or water coloring

Easy peasy, right!! Nope! This one threw me for a loop! Such a simple card just seemed so difficult! I enjoyed it though! I used white and red as my one and only color! No embellishments, no ribbon, no fancy doo dad's! Here is my entry:



Please excuse my stinky lighting! Time got away from me and it completely escaped my mind this was due today! I took the photo inside (at night!) just a few minutes ago!

Also, wanted to share a picture of hubby's car in the snow! :) He drives a Fit which is a tiny, little car! I got tickled when I saw how tiny it really looked in all of this snow! Here is the picture:



Finally, a couple pictures of my snow angels(!!):




Hope that you are having a warm and wonderful weekend! I have much more to share and will be back soonest! :)
