Simply Betty Challenges ~ Snowtacular

Im BAAAAAACK! for real! hopefully my blog will be much more active again...Ive so missed it. We have another fun challenge for you over at Simply Betty Challenges and OI!! What a challenge it is! I dont know what side of the country or globe you live on, but we've had some HUGE snowfalls this year! And in honour of this great white north type weather our dear DT member Lelia thought it would be FUN (she's demented....really.....but we love her anyhow. ;o) ) to challenge us to use ONLY WHITE!!! WHAT!?!?! OMG!! Are you kidding??? LOL Ok....so..... I had this great idea...and I tried, I really really did...to use only white...but it needed....some chilly like blue..... so.... I caved.
Now....I wanted to make poor Miller here look like he'd been splattered and snowed in by some crazy snowplow driver.....Cause MAN! Does that happen to you?? Our driveway is LOOONG and steep and well...you work your butt off (well sort of...driving the quad around) clearing off the driveway...and then the darn plow truck goes by and blocks you back in again!!!! What is UP with that?!?! Do they wait around the corner?!?! come on!!!
Ooops...sidetracked.... Ya ok. So did you know, that if you emboss some clear packaging it's the COOLEST look....but then if you apply heat accidently, to said plastic when puffing up some snow..... the embossing dissapears?!?! Seriously! neither did I! Crap! So that clear plastic in behind there had some AWESOME snowflakes in it....you can still see a few. :(
Allright.... that's it that's all! I sure hope you can join us this week!

Hi Cheri
Glad to see you're back. Tough times but I promise it does get better.
Love the card so creative and imaginative, colouring great as usual. Agree about snow plowers and the sign is so true. And blue is a cool colour that's almost white. ?

I live in NY and holy cow have we had snow this year. The last year we had like this was back in 95. I remember that everyone was going nuts with all the snow and of course all of the snow jokes started flying around in e-mail. There was on about the snow plow blocking the driveway in after you had shoveled it. Your reference to that reminded me of all those jokes from winter of 95. Your card is incredibly awesome. I have been playing with embossing clear plastic and acetate and I LOVE the look. I can totally see your snowflakes....great job girl. Inspired!!!

Hugs
Stephanie
