Playing With Snow Today

December 22, 2010
*
Good morning. Brr-r-r-r-r!! My, it's cold! I see a bit of a breeze outside my window this morning, and the yard looks a bit icy. Yesterday, several of the dwarfs went out and shoveled up the snow and cleared of my car too. Thank you, thank you guys. I really do appreciate that.
*
I have a couple of photos that I took yesterday through the window, of the snow on the hedge just outside. It's a good thing I took the photos because this morning there is hardly any snow left on the hedge.

My friend Su introduced me to a wonderfully creative group, Digital Whispers. The folks there are so creative, and everyday is a learning day. Today's challenge was to create snowflakes, either by drawing with a line tool, or by using your initial. I chose to use the letter "E." (That's because I couldn't find the line tool!) For a background, I used a photo that I had taken of the night moon recently. Then I placed my "snowflakes" all over the background. Because you cannot see the pattern in the little flakes, I placed one very large snowflake on top of everything and muted it a bit. Yes'm, I did have fun!
*
That's about as close to the snow as I want to get when I am playing with it. But I do love the challenge of learning new things, and this group offers so many opportunities for that.
*
Starting tomorrow, I have some Christmas gifts for you that I will post here. One each day, till Christmas morning. All together, there are three. With all that has happened this year, I am very grateful for all of you. Coming here every day to chat has helped me tremendously. Even though the Grinch has done his best to put a damper on Christmas, Tootsie and I will stil have a joyous day. And we wish the same for all of you.
*
Now it's time for me to get dressed, and maybe have another cup of coffee before it's time to start my day. Till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a simply marvelous day.
*
Hugs, Edna B.
