Winter Wonderland

We are still in our own little winter wonderland. We will be going back to work tomorrow although the school system is still off. Tonight they lifted the travel ban in Indianapolis. The driving is hazardous. I haven't been out for 3 days so I'm not sure what I'll encounter when I venture out to work tomorrow morning.
Today I took some time to clean off the mess that was my desk and to make a card. I cleaned our basement too. My card today is yet another Christmas card. Woo-hoo I will have a stash for 2014 if I keep this up!
I took apart all of my Simon Says Card kits and found this awesome stencil of a snowflake. I used the stencil and inked the background with Stampin' Up! Bashful Blue. I used the sketch from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. I embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder. The sentiment is also from the December Simon Says Card Kit. I added the ribbon and the ric rac and then use a blue marker to make the faux stitching.
I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you had a wonderful Tuesday. Stay warm out there.
