Dashing Deer

When I am creating a winter scene I just have to use Sparkle Glimmer cardstock to represent the snow, not that snow always glistens, because the worst part of winter for me is when the snow is melting and all the greasy filthy black snow is piled up along the road side (that my grandkids cannot resist climbing on). The best part of snow is when it is freshly falling, blanketing everything and everyone in its path with pure white sparkling snow.

I feel so lucky to live in a place where we have four seasons each with their own unique magic from the sparkling snow to the spring bulbs bursting forth after their long winter nap, to the lazy days of summer then the glorious colors of fall. I’m so inspired by Mother Nature and the pictures she paints for us throughout the year.
