Inspired by Nature

Good Morning,
Our local ski mountain got 6ft of snow in 2 days...... WOW!
We however got about a 1 1/2 ft..... now it is pouring rain CRAZY! Mother Nature has PMS! Wish she would try hormone replacement therapy! My card is a pretty CAS state of affairs! I stamped half of the grass from inspired by nature and added my little punched  pieces to create cat tails. Popped on a few pearls and a ribbon, Wha La! Hope you have a great day! Stay dry!

Hey, what a great idea!! You are so creative. Love the CAS of your card. Sorry about all of the bad weather. I think of you whenever I see the map of the US....we are in the low 50's and so glad. Stay warm and dry,if possible.

What an awesome CAS card! Definitely doesn't need anymore or would take away from the cattails! Love how you did the cattails! Fabulous!

Your post made me smile this morning.......Mother Nature should go on HRT!!!!!
Love this pretty card and how inspired to use little punched out tops........have to remember that one!

Super cute card, Patti! I like how you made the cat tails..will have to try that!
I had to giggle when you said Mother Nature needed hormone replacement for her PMS!! I know the weather has been so crazy. Hope you dont have any flooding once all that snow melts and all the rain your getting. Might have to invest in a boat.
Take care & be safe!!

I love this one! It popped right out at me today while I scrolled through to see what I've missed. The striped paper with the cattails just does something!

Patty said...

It might be me who needs hormone therapy! But, I am ready for spring and I want it NOW! LOL! Love this card and the green is 'springy'.

Great card, LOVE your cat tails!!

I can't imagine 6ft of snow in 2 days! 1 1/2 ft is bad enough! Hoping Spring comes soon!
