Okay, let's talk snowpants.
Yesterday, for the first time in about 25 years, I wore a pair of snowpants. The ridiculously cold weather and the urgings of my daughter prompted me to buy my very own pair to wear on the freezing, windy walks to school/studio in the mornings. And so I waddled over, feeling that special "swish-swish" of my thighs rustling together. But hey! I was warm :) And I got all warm & fuzzy remembering great times playing in the snow with my brothers and friends, so I'm happy I got them (even if I looked like the Pillsbury Dough Girl).
So in the spirit of waxing nostalgic, here's a gorgeous card from my friend Carolynn that uses some much-loved but retired stamps. This card began its humble beginnings after we tested out the "Top Note" die in her Cuttlebug, using an old 1/4 sheet of cardstock that had the "French Script" background stamped on it. I challenged her to make me a card using it, and so she did.
More nostalgia when I attended the kids' Holiday concert last week, and saw them both hamming it up. You can go ahead and forward the first one to about the :15 second mark before Morgan kicks in:
Serena looks frighteningly like me when I was her age in this one:
Anyhow, I hope all is well for everyone as you wrap up this last weekend before Christmas. I'm awaiting Brent's return from the store with more tape so I can finish wrapping everything up!
(I was pretty surprised they *make* snow pants in my size, perhaps they should label them sow pants ;-))
Your kids are SO expressive..Love the way they get into the songs.
Sue in VERY Snowy (and snowing)Vancouver!
Hugs and Merry Christmas/Happy New Year~
