Snow for Christmas

Dec 21, 2011

I LOVE snow and hope we get some this win­ter… so far all we’ve had is rain… which we need ter­ri­bly BUT snow sure would be awe­some. We have a chance for flur­ries Fri­day and Sat­ur­day but most likely it will be short lived and turn to rain. We will see and you can bet I will be watch­ing the fore­cast like a lit­tle kid.


I have a true love for any­thing with snowflakes so when Maya Road came out with their adorable “Let It Snow” stamp set, I was thrilled. And their Blue 1″ Ink Pad is a gor­geous win­ter blue ink, so keep this in mind for any of your win­ter projects. If you would like to recre­ate this card cut a piece of white card­stock to 8″ x 11″ then fold it in half. You will end up with a card mea­sur­ing 4″ x 5.25″. Next, using a paper trim­mer cut 4 strips of white card­stock mea­sur­ing 1 & 1/8″ x 4″. Place a clear snowflake stamp from the “Let It Snow” stamp set onto an acrylic block and ink it using the Maya Road Blue ink. Then ran­domly stamp snowflakes all along the strips as shown in the pho­tos. Attach each stamped card­stock strip to the card using foam squares. Tie a white seam bind­ing bow around 5 Maya Road Vin­tage Paper Posies, accent the cen­ters of the posies using Dia­mond Stick­les, let dry and then attach the bow and flower clus­ter to the card using Fabri Tac.

And today we have one of my dad’s favorite Santa sto­ries from the past.

A young lady about 10 or12 years old came up to visit Santa and he asked her what she wanted for Christ­mas? She replied in a very soft and slow voice, “I just want it to snow for Christ­mas.” Well Santa had to answer with an “I’m sorry, Santa can’t do that, that’s Gods work.” Santa sat for a sec­ond with a short pause and told the lit­tle girl, “But I’ll tell you what, you and I can pray for snow. Okay?” Okay, she said and away she went.

This sweet visit encounter hap­pened about three weeks before Christ­mas. The story was told all over the east coast through Santa’s fam­ily and friends. They too knew the chances of get­ting snow for Christ­mas in Beau­mont, Texas were pretty slim to none. Well… this lit­tle girls prayers were answered because on Christ­mas eve, it SNOWED in Beau­mont ‚Texas. And snow it did because that Christ­mas South­east Texas received the biggest snow storm in 100 years.

This lit­tle girls visit was back in 2008 and in the years since Santa has hoped she would come to visit again so he could tell her how much JOY her story has brought to so many peo­ple. Each year, he keeps hop­ing she’ll come see him so they can talk about it but so far it hasn’t hap­pened and he keeps hoping.

Here is Santa and Mrs. Claus play­ing in the snow with my niece Madelyn. 

Warmest Hugs!

    I love that Santa is wear­ing shorts in the snow. :) The Santa sto­ries are very sweet.

      Annie, Santa wears shorts year round unless on Santa duty… it can get mighty inter­est­ing when Mrs. Claus makes him wear long pants. The elves get a good laugh is all I’m saying.
