Brrr. It's cold Here

Good Morning Everybody. Well I think this is record for my house -7 c this morning and it's only Sept 18th My garden is mush!! :( Here is the view out my Kitchen window. Look at the Frost!!! The summer went by so fast and I really hope we get Fall and don't skip right to winter !!! Any way.. my card today is getting entered in LOTV sketch Chalenge. I was so excited the other day when I found some silver metallic thread. you can't really see it on the card but it looks awesome in person . Well I guess that is all the fun today , now I have to pick the rest of my garden, carrots and potatoes. Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by today :) Monique

Beautiful Christmas card, and perfect for the weather! LOL

I'm not sure where you are in AB, but it looks a bit colder there than here... we were just below 0 c last night. Brr! Time to move! :p

OH what a pretty pretty card! Great patterns and colors!

Oh it's happening here too with the COLD. I'm so glad we picked all the tomatoes before it froze!

I am so in love with this card! I love everything you have done! The stitching, the paper and that amazing image! I wish I was on your Christmas card list!
I cannot believe how cold it has got. We have not had much of a fall here, which has me a little worried. I heard we are suppose to have quite a winter, hopefully they are wrong!

The details are yummy- and the silver thread shows in the bottom pic! :)
Bummer on the cold! I'm about an hour south of Seattle- where it's been colder (and WETTER) than usual- but thankfully no frost yet. Still hoping to get some more tomoatoes to ripen up! :)

Such a sweet birdhouse. Love the snow you added around it. The snowflakes are adorable.

Monique, I'm so very impressed by this card - it's wonderful!!!!! So many delicious details!

I can't believe it's so cold where you are! I was up at 5 AM to put stain on my new fencing and it was already 73 degrees (above) - the sun was still not up . . . once I was standing in the direct sunlight it was actually quite HOT! I'm sorry - wish we could share!

Hugs!
