It's a Snow Day!!!


My daughter is THRILLED this morning, because we got up (rather I got up and she burrowed further under her covers) and I checked the school board website. There was a big red scrolling info band across the site that said that in anticipation of the today's winter storm, all schools in the area are CLOSED!!! Woohoo!! It was the last day of school before the holidays anyway, but Emileigh was excited to start her winter vacation today!

Now I am waiting by the phone because I'm REALLY hoping that they decide to close the library today. It's not very often that they close the library altogether but we are supposed to get up to 20 cms of snow by tonight. I would hope that the 'powers that be' will look out, no only for the patrons' safety but also the safety of their employees. It could also be that I'd just REALLY love a snow day!! I wanna STAMP!!!

Anyhoooo, today's card features ME, skiing to work later today because I won't be able to drive through the blizzard!! hahahaaa!! Okay, it's not really me, it's SKIIER RILEY!! I got mine at the Town Scrapper....that's where I pick up most of my Rileys!! The card base is Tangerine Tango and I used Close to Cocoa for matting. The designer papers are from Frosty Day by SU (what an appropriate name for today). I used my new Nesties to cut out Riley after I coloured him with my Copic markers. The ribbon is from My Favourite Things and I used some Basic Grey brads up in the corner.




The sketch is a great one and I'll use it again for sure! This was a sketch challenge in the Hanna Stamps Forum a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was perfect for Riley images! Also this wonderful sentiment is from High Hopes!! I use it a lot on winter cards!!

Okay, I'm off to wait for my poor husband to drive home in this insane weather and hope for the phone to ring with my boss telling me not to bother coming in to work!! hahaa!! It may be wishful thinking but it's good to have hope, isn't it?? Have a stampin' good day!!!

I'm a little further south than you are, and we are being buried at the moment. My dh called me after he got to work to warn me. Definitely not going anywhere today!

We had a snow day tuesday. We don't get many of them here so it was very nice. It gave me a chance to sit in my craft room and finish some Christmas things.

Great card, Kim! I love the layout too and Riley is adorable! I think I might need to use Riley's skies to get home, lol!!! I am at work as it wasn't bad when I left this morning. But it is really coming down now!!!! Luckily, all my appointments out in the community were cancelled. There is a rumour going around the offices that we may get to close at 1:00pm, whoo hoo!!! So, just waiting for the powers-to-be to make that decision!!!

What a cheery, chilly card! Love Mr. Moose. I did the same thing! Checked the school website and a nice big red band told us NO SCHOOL! The kids are out sledding in it right now. My toes couldn't handle it anymore. Well, hope you enjoy a very nice Christmas!!
