Sisterhood Of The Travelling Cards monthly swap:
January is the month been hosted by Maryann (aka mastuff on SCS)
She challenged us sistahs to make cards showing how was the weather,where we live, on New Year Day.
From her own words, it goes like this : "....When you wake up on January 1st, look outside. What is the weather like where you live? Is it raining, snowing, sunshine, windy? Make a card with your current weather in it. Example: raining, put an umbrella somewhere on the card; sunshine, maybe flowers growing; snowing, sledding, snowman; windy, make me think of fall leaves. Have fun with this and it will be interesting to see what type of weather, everyone had on the first day of the new year...."

Well, when I woke up on January first I noticed right away that it was a GORGEOUS day indeed!
We still had snow on the ground and the sun was shimmering and reflecting on it making everywhere I look appear so clean and pristine, sooo beautiful! When I looked out my upstairs windows I saw huge pine trees with some snow clinging still
on their heavily extended branches, and that is the image I wanted to create on my cards giving it also a 3-D effect inside my brand new beaded oval nesties which I LOVEEE! :o)
For these cards ,I stamped images using
a very old Stamping Up set called
Sensational Scenery (1997) still inside its original pkg.cell. I love this set and will never part with it!
