Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and a REAL White Christmas!

It is Sunday and time for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge!     I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  We had a wonderful day with family.  We also got a White Christmas.  It started snowing late day so it was really nice since we rarely get snow in these parts.  The white Christmas works beautifully with this week's challenge theme.  The challenge is to use snow on your card.   Nothing says snow quite like a snowman.  I finally get to use this little guy.   I am using a set from Flourishes called Warm Winter Wishes. I also used a few patterns of BasicGrey Jovial. 

Edited:  Well, I finally have internet!  The snow was so bad when we got up this morning that the area phone lines were not working.  It is 4:30 pm and I am just getting online today.  I thought I would share with you a photo from my front door taken this morning.  We have over a foot of snow!  Yikes!  Not the norm at all here!  It is beautiful, though.

It is alittle late in the day to finally get to link my card to some blog challenges, but I had a few I wanted to play along with because they are anything goes!  Can't miss those!

  8. Hi there Betty

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response.

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
