Rumors of an impending snow event were flying at the beginning of the week. By Thursday our wintery mix decided to bring it in the form of freezing rain. While it can be beautiful it’s also treacherous for travel and absolutely devastating for trees. Power went out in the middle of the night Friday of Valentines weekend. I woke to a silent house followed by hours of hearing trees cracking, popping and toppling from their icy weight into the early dawn hours and throughout the day.
When it was light we could see some of the damage. Much of our community and surrounding areas were without power due to the massive amount of trees or branches down. We would likely be without power for several days. In the meantime I could craft while it was light or by lantern glow.
One afternoon I worked on a Valentine for my hubby and a birthday card for my lovely niece. I’m sharing how I made this simple birthday card.
Materials: 8 1/2” x 11” card stock, patterned background paper, white card stock.
Tools: stamps, dies, die cutter, scissors, adhesive, alcohol markers, Memento dye ink pad.
