Snow Day....Schools Closed!!

Well we are finally getting the big snow storm that we avoided all winter here on Long Island. We are expecting about a foot in total after all is done and it is cold cold cold!! But of course that does not effect the kids who are home from school today and ALREADY outside playing at 9:30am!! I even put a first round of gloves in the dryer to dry!! Yup its going to be a long day. The big news here in NY is that NYC has closed school also. They NEVER close. But that is how much snow we are expecting. I think they said it had been 5 years since the last time the city closed schools. So that is my fun for the day....I hope to also get some crafting in too. But here are a few cards that I had made already and never posted. I was in a coloring mood so this little bunny was perfect. The image was a RAK so I dont know who makes it but she is so cute peeping out of that basket. I watercolored the basket in Baja Breeze and colored the rest with my copics. The sentiment I generated off the computer. Something I learned from Sharon Caudle whose blog I stalk all the time.

The next card I made I wanted to do something alittle different. I love how alot of people make thier Tilda cards alittle shabby chic. So I wanted to give it a try. Not bad I think!! I had fun with this one also.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I am going to keep warm and dry (unlike my kids who are already making thier way BACK in the house in the time it has taken me to post this. (hehe)
