Van Houten's Cocoa

Brrrrr!  With all this cold snowy weather, thought you all could use a little warming up!  If you've visited my blog before you know I love creating holders for Test Tubes.  This time I've altered my pattern to accommodate a the larger ATC sized Van Houten's Cocoa image from the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder Plate.  Don't forget through February 14th, you'll save 15% on your Artistic Outpost purchases when you use code January2011 at checkout!

Before I share the finished project - here's a few snowy photos

We hired a neighbor with a Bobcat to dig us out, it took him over an hour just to clear the drive, even though Jim and the boys started to dig us out.   As you can see by the other photo, the boys had a blast riding the snow drifts all day.  The house it back to quiet today, I think our local HS was one of the few schools in session today even the CPS closed again.    I'm not complaining though, one less snow day to make up at the end of the year.  The school had planned ahead and called a delayed start, when I got the boys up it was -11, by the time they left to catch the bus it warmed up to ZERO.   Good thing the groundhog said it will be an early Spring!

Hi Lisa~

What a great idea! This stamp is perfect for this! The card is great, too!

I love the photos...though I couldn't imagine living through it again! Those drifts must be so much fun for playing, though!
