365 Photo - SNIP! and APWP #23 challenge card

Today's theme: SNIP!  

I was quite surprised to see my friend out pruning in the snow.  I was under the impression that pruning was generally done in the spring and fall, and apparently it is, generally.  However my friend says that farmers seem to prune earlier and earlier each year and it seems to be ok.  I learn something new every day.  I love the power-snippers, they just lop off branches in the twinkling of an eye.  Hmmm - I'd be afraid I'd lop of a finger perhaps.  Oh my. 

pretty & oh so sparkly

I absolutely love when the snow is like this.  Crunchy on top with a million glittery diamonds upon the surface.  

What was it like today where you live?

I managed to create a card for the Always Playing With Paper #23 Challenge:

I chose to go with the sketch: 

The photo doesn't do my card justice.  I generally try to wait until daylight and take my pics outside, natural light can't be beat.  At any rate, this is my attempt.
