The Hush of a Snowy Landscape

Greetings, Stamplings!

Once again the quiet hush of your holiday preparations won't be marred by a long-winded post from me. 

Haha, as if there was a quiet hush enveloping us in our preparations! No, dearie, a passer-by would hear the tearing sound of the tape gun, the pound-pound-pound of the stamp meeting the ink pad, the whoosh of the paper cutter slicing its way through paper, perhaps an unladylike word, the slamming of a drawer . . . 

Why some of us, if we weren't using them for other porpoises, would literally be wringing our hands!

So, no, our craft rooms are not hushed. And if, by chance, you are sitting in your room and it is hushly quiet, then snap out of it, girl! Those holiday cards are NOT going to make themselves!

Today, Hammy and I have prepared for you some landscapes that do exudulate a quiet hush:
Some of these cards were part of my marathon card-making at the Lake House with the BABES. The beautiful background vellum papers are all from SU. The hillside die was borrowed. I believe it was a Memory Box die. The sediment is from Skipping Stones Design.

I forgot to show you this the other day. So what do two almost-12-year-old boys do on Thanksgiving Day when the turkey is taking forever and all the grownups are just standing around talking? They escape to the garage and find their father's old "Carpentry for Kids" box high up on a shelf and make this:
Won't it be fun if a Bird Family moves into this chic apartment in the springtime?

Okay, scoot! But enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*
