After a glorious weekend of chamber of commerce weather, it almost seems a shame to think about the upcoming cold that will soon be upon us. Today's challenge at Totally Stampalicious is make a card with at least three snowflakes on it. Here is my sample for the challenge. i used Let it Snow Stella from the newly released stamp sets from Totally Stampalicious' Bugaboo line. I love the sentiments that go with this set because they pretty much sum up my feelings about snow. Don't get me wrong, it's pretty stuff....on the news, on a calendar, on a Christmas card...but I moved to Florida at the tender age of 18 because I knew I didn't want to deal with the dreaded white stuff! I have never put the Let it Snow sentiment on a card before, because I really don't want it to. But this set allows for the exception because on the inside I was able to add...."somewhere else!"
The big fuzzy snowflake in the background is a dollar store find. There were six of these babies on the card and I knew it would be perfect for this challenge. The little ones on the front were punched from a shimmery brown paper with a Martha Stewart punch. The papers are some SU! dsp from years ago called Wintergreen. I loved this paper so much, I hoarded it and used very little of it. I uncovered it in my stash of Christmas papers when I dug them out of the closet this weekend. I think I'll be using them again before the season is over!!!
