Inspiration Challenge cards {and a training fire}

Audrie chose the Harry and David's website for the inspiration challenge today and I happened across this gift and decided to use the colors as the jump start for these cards. The Impression Obsession snowflake is heat embossed with some SU white powder on PTI vellum cardstock (last weekend while I was messing around with the featured stamper challenge) and I always make more of something esp. if its messy. So, I decided to cut it square and the one below also then used the square dies to make some window frames to have something to glue to. these panels are up on pop dots and you cannot see the light pass through this one because, its backed with the ( very thin, last piece I had to use up of this coversheet from staples) white metallic paper. go me eh? The sentiment is from Hero Arts. the lace is vintage and this one is 6" square in real life. 

This version is A-2 in real life on some PTI chocolate and the lace is also vintage. I don't remember who makes these gems. 

the view out the front door after 1 today. ( the house two doors south was condemmed a couple of years ago due to a fire and someone bought the property to rebuild something ( bigger and fancier on) and donated the original house to the fire dept. for a training day. 

these are just out of the phone.

I was so very thankful the wind never whipped around and came towards the house. ( you can still smell the smoke but, its not an intolerable have to go away type fill your house with smoke smell) 

because, i was text-ing J while this was going on and earlier there were a lot more fire trucks at the school across the street but, by the time the flames got really high most of them had already left.
