It’s Saturday and Time for W is for WOW it’s cold!!!

The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers has a new challenge for you,  challenge #25 W is for WOW it’s cold!!! (and it sure is here in Canada) Make a winter themed card.
Here I am cosy in my warm house looking out the window at the awesome winter scene, I’m hoping it looks like wallpaper and wainscoting, with a brown chair rail. I didn’t stamp and colour the scene, my daughter gave me a notecard and said “ I think you could do something with this” well seems to me it was a challenge and I took advantage of it. Here is the notecard I started with.
I have never altered a bought card before and it was fun deciding how to make it mine.
Close up through the window, I put some clear acrylic to make it look like glass and popped it up on 3d Zots.
I have decided this is a Thank You card I am giving to a neighbour that kindly gave us a container of home made sugar cookies. It was a tradition his Mom started and he hand delivered to a few of the neighbours.

I would like to enter this in Crafty Gals Corner challenge #1 Anything goes & blog hop. They are the new kid on the challenge block so check them out.

Thanks for stopping by today and we would like to see your Winter themed card. Just add it to the link at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, while you are there check out what my team mates have done, some have some snark on them too.
