Thousands of residents of the north had a nasty blast from Mother Nature Saturday when a nor'easter swept up the cost dumping heavy wet snow along the way. Because the trees are just beginning to turn colors and drop their leaves, the additional weight from the heavy snow caused trees to snap and fall onto power lines knocking out power. There are still areas without electricity. I am fortunate that I skated through with electricity intact, but many of my friends and family were without. Because of the early snowfall, it wasn't hard to find inspiration for the "winter" challenge starting today at Digi Doodle Shop! I used Snowman and Friends, and I've got to tell you, as much fun as it was coloring the image, it was difficult keeping the bird feeder filled!
I am very passionate about animals so it is such a pleasure to be working with the folks at Digi Doodle Shop who share the same philosophy. During November animal stamps are on sale for 25% off. If you spend $7.00 you get two delightful free images and $2.00 will go to Pet Pardons, an organization helping displaced pets on death row find a place in a no-kill shelter or a forever home. So please join us, not only in the Digi Doodle Shop challenge but also in helping our four-legged friends. And be sure to visit the rest of the design team for more inspiration for "winter"!
