Okay, I have two more winter picture to share with you today. Hopefully these are the last of the year!
This is what happened during our last storm almost two weeks ago! 
That's my sweet husband that's being dwarfed by the huge drift!

This is another road about half a mile away from the first photo. Yes, there is a road under there!

The sun has come out and the big melt has begun...but it's going to take some time! 
Have a wonderful weekend! :o)


  1. Love, love the bag Nancy. You would think it was a card if you did not know. Great sketch also to work with.

  2. And, I am sure glad I am not in that big snow. Brrrrrrr.

  3. That is one cool bag, Nancy. Love the bright colors. So cool. OMGosh that is a ton of snow. Where is spring? We are still getting bone chilling wind here. brrrr!! Have a great Friday... Hugs!!

  4. TGIF Nancy! Your bag project turned out perfect! The yellow bakers twine is precious. Those are some awesome pictures - we are supposed to get more tonight. Have a great weekend! ~*~Lisa

  5. I had to look twice before I realized this was a bag but it's a great project. Your colours compliment that bright yellow perfectly! Fab colouring Nancy... the highlights on his pants are pefect and I like how even your cutting is.

  6. Oh, I meant to comment on the snow... that's what it is like here in the SW part of the province and I am so over winter. It is melting though and in a couple months, I'll probably be complaining about how hot it is!

  7. Oh, my...I think it WILL take some time to get rid of that. Maybe I should send you some of the 60 degrees plus rain we're supposed to get over the next several days. But then we'd probably be looking at you and hubby in floaties...bobbing down that road we can't see!!;) That bag is adorable, Nancy...just perfection!!

  8. Argh Nancy! It looks like whipped cream but I bet it's frozen solid!! Thanks for sharing the pictures!

    I love your altered bag!
    You are on fire these days and that shading you did is absolutely divine! Way to go Nancy!!

    Have a fabulous week-end my Sweet Friend!

  9. Hi Nancy. Your card is such a pretty card. with beautiful colours and great details. Brrr I hope for allo of you that the spring is coming soon. Here in the netherlands is het cold also. And the wind blows so hard and we hope that this weekend the spring disapeares . Have a nice weekend my creative friend.
