Wishing for Snow

Can you tell I'm wishing for snow? It's just a couple of degrees too warm here but the mountains, literally 20 minutes from my house are gorgeous right now. I want a snow walk!

This card is really a combination of the last two that I made. I took the layout of Let it Snow and the same sentiment but made it into a shaker card like my previous one. I'm still trying to use up some leftover Ezmount. I may have one more shaker out of it. We'll see how inspired I feel...

I tend to like images of snow, snowflakes, and snowmen since these images can be used all winter rather than just as Christmas cards. I can sometimes be a bit late with my Christmas cards but since I tend to write personal letters with them all rather than a form letter, I refuse to feel guilty. Fifty letters take a long time, especially after writing report cards.
