Cooking up Creations Crop Chef Challenge #3

The challenge this time was to include, embossing, a clock face, trims, hand written journalling, a postage stamp, stickles and masking technique.  I decided to to a LO about winter.  I have quite a few relatives who live in Florida and California, and they always gloat about their "good weather."   I actually like winter.  It serves a purpose in my life, is part of the rhythm of nature.  I like being warm in my house, making warm comfort food, and watching the occasional snowstorm.  Sometimes it's incredibly beautiful.  And I think it makes spring truely welcome and miraculous.

Journalling says: "It seems to me that many people miss the blessing of winter. Instead of cursing the cold or wishing it away, I prefer to focus on home and family and the warmth I create there. It is a time to be reflective and dormant, like nature itself. It is a preparation for the miracle of renewal that happens in the spring. I <3 it."
