Snow Much Fun!

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce our new challenge hostess, which is Lyn McAuley.

Lyn tells us that ..... Many of us are having icy or snowy weather (or are dreaming that we do) now that February has arrived. My challenge for you is to create a project which features some activity unique to the cold months of winter.

Of course living in Australia, we definitely aren't having icy or snowy weather. In fact the opposite, very hot sunny days! And even when it is winter we don't really have any icy or snowy weather ... especially snowy!

Anyway it is always fun to dig out some snowy stamps whatever the weather. Today I used an old My Favorite Things Fred Bear stamp set for my card.

I decided to create a Circle Stepper Card for my card today. And of course you can't have snow without a big snowflake :).

For the inside of my card I added a couple of layers and added a sentiment which is computer generated.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
