Stampscapes Christmas - After The Snow!

Howdy Chicks!
First... Hope my friends in the USA are having a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday
Second... What a week!  I'm losing things that are right in front of me.  The dogs don't need extra exercise because they follow me from room to room, doing the same circuit 20 times looking for the thing that's lost, right in front of me!  Don't laugh youngin's!  One day you'll find out!  Saying a prayer to the big guy won't help because it's Mother Nature playing around with your head!!
I went in to the shop today to get some information compiled for Revenue Canada (eegad!).  The shop wasn't as busy which meant that Pearl (my Mexican monster) wasn't being fed her quota of treats from adoptive parents so... while I'm compiling info for the government... Purl is standing up at the back of my office chair and actually hitting me in the head with her paw because I put her on ignore.  I Defintely wasn't feeling the love!
The carpet layers came this morning.  All they did was skim the basement floor twice and will be back Saturday morning to install the carpet and new vinyl which also should have been done today!  Another day that will send me in circles.  Hope I don't get too dizzy!!

Here's my post!
I've been trying to come up with a Christmas card using Stampscapes that is not only easy, but looks pretty kewl too!  Here's the end result and I'm pretty happy with it!   The sky isn't grey and stormy like my earlier ones.  To me, being a Prairie Girl (back when dinosaurs roamed the earth), this is what the sky looks like after a big dump of snow.  The sky was lightened somewhat with Adirondack Lemonade along with a touch into the snow.
I added some extra fine crystal glitter that I bought when the dinosaurs roamed the earth and when MS started putting things in Michaels.  That's probably before most of you were born, or even thought of! 
Here's a close up of the glitter!
Hope you can make it out!
Here's the recipe!

Beautiful card Sheree! What a hoot ... I had a real laugh reading your post and it brought chaotic pictures to my mind of just what it's like here (but sadly no dog now!) Glad to visit your blog!
Thanks for your lovely comment ... it seems so many others have had bad criticisms and it looks like it's spam. Sad in such a friendly blogging area.

LOL Sheree, I'm glad those take it and run, invisible whatnot's found a new home. I'm very sorry they floated, flew or what ever your way but how nice its been here this week finding things.

Your card is beyond words stunning, I hate the snow after all these years but still love the beauty from it, I know, I'd miss not ever seeing it again but now I could just stare at your cards and feel the love without the cold. ;)

Fabulous card, stay well and enjoy the new carpet and flooring. Hugs, Lori m

This is really pretty. What a great idea to use a paint pen. I wasn't sure they would work on glossy cardstock but it sure worked for you! I'll have to give it a try.

You crack me up, Sheree. You have quite the comedic flair with your proverbial pen.
Your card is gorgeous. How clever of you to think of putting a wash of yellow in the horizon.
Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. They always make me smile.
Blessings & hugs,

This scene is so beautiful! The yellow in the sky adds a wonderful touch and I love the stamps you used and where they were placed. TFS!
