Have an Ice Day!

Wow..I tell ya what, we here in the Southern Utah desert have an some ICE DAYS lately.   Last weekend, we got hit with more snow than I think we have had in decades and definitely more than I've ever seen while living here most of my life.   I know those of you who have snowy winters normally kinda laugh and say what's the big deal, it's 6 inches of snow....but for us, it gets crazy.  Mind you, we have NO equipment for snow, usually when and if it does snow, it doesn't stick on the roads, this stuck and stayed.  We were told to stay home if we could and they called off church because of a SNOW DAY.  We live here precisely because of the mild winters.  The gorge between St. George and Las Vegas was completely shut down for more than 12 hours and people were stranded.  Kinda scary!

Anyway off of the weather and on to the cute card I made using this adorable penguin, it  and the sentiments are from SKdigis, you can find it HERE.  The snowglobe cut file is from My Scrap Chick and the snowflake is from The Joys of the Season cricut cartridge.  I colored with copics, used snow icicle stickles for a snowy glittery effect.  I hope ya like it!!

  1. Hi Sharla, Thanks for playing along with us at Jo's Scrap Shack FFC 30. This cute little guy sure fit the theme of winter to a perfect T! He's adorable, and loved that you used the snow globe to show him off. Perfect casting! Have a great weekend, and stay safe in your snow. Hugs

  2. OMGosh this little guy is darling in the snow globe!! I love how you have colored this cutie and I love the sentiment! Yes, 6 inches of snow is a big deal when you aren't used to it and have no equipment to deal with it. We are used to it so no it isn't a big deal, I would give anything to live in a mild climate. lol Thanks for joining us at BBTB2 and Jo's FFC;-)
