Heartfelt Creations

Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  It is officially winter here in Northern Indiana.  We got about 8" of snow last night.  It had rained yesterday afternoon and then all that water froze turning to ice and then we got all this very heavy wet snow.  Several trees and power lines came down, but luckily we always had power.  The kids had a 2 hour delay today from school and were excited about getting to sleep in.  It definitely is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here!  Today I am sharing two card I made that have a Christmas / Winter theme.  Check out the other beautiful projects made by the other Design Team members on the Heartfelt Creations blog!
