Sweet winter wishes coming your way

We had actual temp of 41 so it was 50 degrees warmer than yesterday - WOW!!!  It feels like a heat wave!!!  It will only be a few days, and by Sunday we will be back down to 9 and below zero wind chills again.  People's mood changes so drastically with the weather so hopefully they will be HAPPY for the next few days.  They said it has been 40 days since we had it this temperature.
For my card, I used the My Favorite Things Sketch.  I tried to have it look like a tree with some wildlife and a winter scene.  I heat embossed the sentiment in navy.  Added some stickles on the hats and the top of the snow.

This is very cute! We are grateful that you joined our Challenge here at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the inspiration that comes from God's Word in Romans 1:17 which says, "For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” Have a blessed week.
