Hi blogging friends.  Did the week before Christmas and Christmas week just seem to disappear in a flurry of panic, anticipation, and fun and frolic?  Wow!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is looking forward to the New Year.
Today's card is for the challenge at Sassy Cheryl's. It's challenge 146 and the theme this time is "We Love Snowmen"  I do love snowmen, so this was a challenge I wanted to participate in.  Cheryl has a lot of snowmen stamps and even some in the bargain bins.

I chose this little guy, sitting atop the word Winter.
Card recipe
Digi - Sassy Cheryl's
Paper - Stampin Up
Spellbinders Classic Circle dies
Snowflakes and snowflake border - Memory Box
Branches - Martha Stewart punch
Pink Satin Ribbon and sparkly self stick circle
Dotted with Sharpie Poster Paint Pen
Colored with Copic Markers
We actually got some snow over the holidays, Rick has snowblowed twice, and
yesterday he had to use the roof shovel as the gutters were full of ice and the roof
was stacked high with snow.  Lots of pictures of our little ones on facebook going sledding for
the first time in a long time, even my 14 and 12 year old Grandkids were excited.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Appreciate your wonderful comments.  Until later....
