Thanksgiving Wishes and A Bunch of Snow

Hello...I have to tell you we got dumped on in snow overnight....
Inches and inches and counting, it is still coming down...but oh so pretty...
All our area schools are closed due to the road conditions and blowing snow.
Funny thing is, it is to be 50 degrees here on Sunday!!
My daughter has a foreign exchange student staying the school year from China.
He has never seen snow before, so I wonder what his reaction will be...LOL!!

Here are a few photos I took early this am.






Now onto the card I made purposely  for the challenge at Impression Obsession
"Thanksgiving Wishes"


I went with more of a fall theme.....
inside I will write "Happy Thanksgiving" to the recipient!!
To me Thanksgiving and Fall are one and the same....
Turkey and the crisp Autumn air (tell that to Mother Nature, will you)!!!
Plus the fact I don't have any Thanksgiving stamps...so am making due...LOL!!

I splattered ink first, then stamped an Impression Obsession verse
from CL 135 Autumn Leaves.
I cut the Impression Obsession Bird on A Branch DIE161-N
twice, so I could get a different look for my bird.
I finished it off with a prety bow, button and twine!!


My poor birds here are looking for food, and I feel bad, as I have none.
This snowstorm is early for us, and as usual I am not prepared!!

Entering in the following challenges:
Impression Obsession .... Thanksgiving Wishes
and
Melonheadz Friends ..... Add A Sentiment
and
Craft Dee BowZ ....Anything Goes With A Bow

What a beautiful card!! I love the bird on the branch and the pretty sentiment!! It looks amazing!!

Your pictures are gorgeous!! But oh, the snow!! We only have about 2 inches on the ground, but the temps are downright frigid. It's in the negatives with wind chill. It's only November!! I dread the coming winter. I seriously need to move to a tropical climate ;) I hope you are feeling much better my friend!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

Lovely card, Diane. I love the bird and branch.

Your snow pictures are just beautiful, too! It is much colder than normal here in TX, but no pretty stuff. Just sunshine, wind, and cold temps.

Stay warm, my fiend.

Your card is lovely, and your photos are spectacular! I love snow, but we don't get much here especially before Christmas. I'm so jealous!

BEAUTIFUL snow scenes! Oh, what a gorgeous landscape it creates for your lovely log home. Idyllic! I hope it doesn't inconvenience you too much so you can enjoy the sight. You did a splendid job on your Thanksgiving card, too, even without Thanksgiving stamps. The splatter is a nice touch and the quote is beautiful.
