I like how silent it gets...

...when it's snowing.

It's so meditative and quiet. I can't say that I hate how the mud and dirt gets covered either (and what's with the dog-owners who seem to think that snow takes away the problem? Believe me: that ain't the case!).

Makes it so relaxing to sit at my craft table and make cards, fiddling with an LO and just listening to the silence. No music today. Just the humming of the computer and the occasional call from the cats.

...until I have to step into reality of school, chores and appointments. But for a while longer, I'm enjoying the calm.

This card is using a new digi set I got the other day. She's called Sonny Honeycloud and she's from Pollycraft. Cute as a bug, don't you think?! Love her attitude. The small alpha letters look strange - that's because they're covered with cracle accents that catch the light in a weird way. Did I mention... snow?
(Not the best weather for photographing indoors, but... Whatever. Right? ;))

The card is made for the following challenges:
Pollycraft: Sketch & love theme
Papertake Weekly: Have a Heart
Bunny Zoe's Craft: Love is in the Air
Nordsalten Hobbyklubb: Valentines card with a heart
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog: Hearts a flutter
Stamp Something/Digi Day

Can't sleep because of a tickling cough, so I went down for a licorice and a quick look on your blog ;-)
I always love your fancy sentiments! And how you make things look so "loose"... just fab.
Trying to sleep again now, see you!
