Winter...at last!

It's been a long time comin' but we've finally gotten some true winter weather even if there's still very little snow. Today it's really cold (17 F. last time I checked) but the sun's been shining brilliantly since I got out of school this afternoon. I love the way it refracts on the ice that encases every single branch and glitters with color like a diamond! Photo above is the crabapple tree in from of the house. The picture below is looking across the back yard from the deck. The lake is behind those trees in the background. Click images to enlarge.

Little Treasures

Before stowing it all away until next year I snapped a couple pics of my little studio tree, decorated with ornaments and ATCs made by friends and topped with a hat I altered for the Feisty Chicks' Christmas party. The banner reads "...and a peacock in a pear tree".

My latest tradeables

Here are a few more cards I made yesterday for Joyce's online swap. The center card is made on a piece of copper sheeting with a transparency overlay.
(all cards have been traded.)
