New year, new snow and new inspirations is what this card is all about. This card's inspiration is all around me. It is my family, my friends and where I live. It started on Christmas Eve, when my husband was practicing for choir. He sings in the church choir and one of the songs they were singing was "The Winter Rose". It was snowing on Christmas Eve. Last week on Wednesday we received about nine inches of the most beautiful sparkling snow. The snow covered everything and sparkled like diamonds. If you are from the snow country you know what I am talking about and if you are not just close your eyes and picture it............
Yes, this card is all Silver and White and yes there are ice crystals on the roses.
Thank God For a Friend Like You
