Snowman Sparkle and WOYWW80



(Click on the icon in the WOYWW sidebar if you want to take a tour of workspaces of the world.)

I thought I was working on an easel challenge for Unity but it turns out it required the use of Ippity stamps... my bad. Well, it was good inspiration anyway. I used three different sets on this card. The snowman is from the Dec '10 KOTM, the sentiment is from the Nov '10 KOTM and that cute little house is from a small set called Pixie Lane. (More deets in my SCS Gallery.)

The workspace shows evidence of this card being worked on, plus another project that got put aside until the holiday cards are done.

I found out that goodwill is alive and well this season. My ds#2 rides the school bus infrequently but apparently he recently left the camera I lent him for his photography class on the bus last week. His bus driver's daughter called to inform me that her mom had been taking it on and off the bus for a few days in the hopes that she'd see my son soon to return it. To return it. Over the years, he's left valuable things on buses and they're never seen again. I couldn't believe the honesty and good heartedness of this woman. Tomorrow she gets a card and special gift from us as thanks for being a good soul. I hope it brightens her day.... *smile*

Hope you're keeping snuggly warm during this cold spell.....

I hope your coffee or tea is finished by now. You have a lot of supplies on your desk, including those papers on the far left, that I would love to dive into! And I agree that goodwill is alive, at least in your TOWN. What a wonderful woman and how thoughtful of you (#4).
