Wind Chill factor is -36 degrees!

And that is not as bad as it was this morning! Actual temperatures are below zero right now in the double digits and so... we stay home and dream of warmer days ahead.

Here is a card that I created for one of my sisters.  I think this little digi image from Sassy Cheryl's digital Stamps  looks like my little sister did when she was a girl.  I can imagine her day dreaming in the grass : ) thinking about what she would like to be when she grows up!   She couldn't do this today because I think they got a snow dump of about 12" yesterday! LOL but I am guessing she is dreaming of warmer days today too.

My design was from an old Mojo Monday sketch. I used the Cloud Embossing folder as well as some designer papers from Stampin Up!

While I was working on this card I got a sweet e-mail from my SIL, Donna relating a beautiful story of how she has recently been able to touch the lives of some young girls through the AWANA bible program at her church.  I quickly decided  to duplicate my sister's card and make one for Donna too : )  Donna has brown hair so I colored the little girl's hair brown.  I also did something a bit different - I printed the digi image on a piece of the patterned paper I used so that I could cut out a portion for the girl's shirt.
"A Penny for Your Thoughts" digi from Sassy Cheryl's
 Because I didn't want to miss any of the detail in the puppy's fur I actually included the dog in my cut out.  I colored right over the patterned paper so one would never know the puppy was printed! heehee

Thinking of my sisters : ) today!
Thought bubble was computer generated. Sentiment from TAC
I hope that you are able to stay warm in your part of this beautiful world!!

Hi Patti, a gorgeous sunny card for such freezing temperatures! I can't imagine it being so cold; you are trying to stay warm and we are trying to stay dry! I just want winter to be gone! Warm hugs Carole Z X
