 Cathy over at Totally PaperCrafts is the hostess with the mostest this week and she wanted to see some snow.  I live on the south eastern coast of the US we hardly ever see snow.  The only time we had a white Christmas was 1989 and that was the year we also had Hurricane Hugo come to visit.  That was quite a year around here.  

My bright little snowmen are the fun kind to have around - there's  no shoveling required.  The image was drawn by Cheryl Alger at Sassy Cheryl's and you can get one here.  I just love these letter sitters. 
I planned on coloring them in traditional red & and green so I could use this  plaid DP I was dying to use. But, I am seeing so many beautiful ornaments in these bright colors that I decided to use this pretty, but nontraditional color palette.  Then to my delight I found they matched this ribbon I had picked up at Hobby Lobby awhile back.  Yeah for me, it had never been used either.  

The border punch is a Martha Stewart and the circles were punched with a SU circle punch and embossed with a Cuttlebug Snowflake folder.  Popped a little glitter Stickles and I was finished.  Here's a closeup of these cuties.

Totally PaperCrafts theme is snow this week.  Check us out here to see the snow my, oh so talented DT Sisters have for you this week! Then grab some snow and make a creation and join in the fun. There is a great prize at stake from our very talented :

I would also like to enter this card in the Sassy Cheryl Winter Challenge too.  Check out their cards too.  My goodness Cheryl has some very talented crafters in her team also!

Hugs to everyone in this oh so busy time of the year.  My wish for you is that you don't get too caught up in the hustle and bustle and spend more time in the joy and merriment of the season. HO HO HO!!!!!  **Linda
