The fire is slowly dying, and, my dear, we're still good-bying,
But as long as you love me so, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
~ Sammy Cahn, 1945
We have a lot of crazy traditions in the McClain house. One of them is saving snow. Yep, we get snow so seldom in Central Texas that we get pretty excited about it. We always save a sample of the last snowfall in our freezer in a small Tupperware container marked with the date. Unfortunately, our last snow sample didn't survive our move this past summer, so . . . we're anxiously waiting for the next snowfall to restock our snow supply.
I found these great Impression Obsession "Shake It Pouches" at my favorite local stamp store, Stamp Solado. It works like the Stampin' Up! Sweet Treat Cups, but is bigger and a little flatter. I have just a little hint if you use either product. The adhesive on the cups/pouches is not strong enough to keep the glitter in the pouch. So, just add a little crystal lacquer or other clear-drying liquid adhesive to the back of the pouch to give it a stronger bond.
This week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC94 was a perfect fit.
