Snow and Gift Card Sets

Here it is November 30 and we received our first real snow fall last night.  I love it when I wake up in the morning and the sun is shining upon the fresh, new snow.  I just had to take a few pictures and share them with you.

This is our view from our dining room window looking toward the east.  The snow was so heavy the pine tree branches were touching the ground.  Typically, we have a good 8-10 foot clearance to walk under this beautiful tree.

This is the same pine tree from a different angle and that is our barn.  The snow is quite deep in front of our sliding door!

I took this photo from my stamp room window, which is a view out toward our front yard and the road.  The snow built up a bit on the window sill and screen.

Here's another view of the snow in our backyard  from my living room window.

 Here's another shot of the pine tree branch hanging to the ground.

As I was taking the photos this morning, this doe came walking out of our woods.  She's headed toward the apple tree where the deer love to feed. 

Okay...so on to a peek of what I have created for my weekly posting on the Rubbernecker Stampin' Sisterhood blog.  I'd love it if you popped over there to see my entire project and leave a comment!

It's part of a gift card set.  I've actually been working on several sets for a customer.

Update:  Here are two other gift sets I made using Stampin' Up's Flight of the Butterfly and A Tree for All Seasons.  I'm entering the Butterflies set into the Just Us Girls challenge to create such a gift set.

Thanks for stopping by!  I always appreciate your visit and comments!  Have a terrific day!

We had our big snowstorm a few weeks ago...it looked just like this! So beautiful, but it damaged so many trees in our community. I love your photos, Charlene, what a lovely peaceful scene you live in. And your card sets are so creative!! Boxes and all, such a pro!!

The snow looks so beautiful! And wow! I love your card sets...hard to choose a favorite but I think I like the trees on the last one best. So much gorgeous inspiration! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Us Girls!

What a magical winter wonderland! Thanks for sharing it. We had snow around this time last year, but I think everybody is hoping we don't get it again. We're just not geared up for it here!
I just love A Tree for All Seasons, and those are such beautiful cards.
