Hi, There!

We are getting ready for a snow storm coming our way starting on Friday thru Saturday!!  So tomorrow I go out like all the other crazies for the "milk and bread and batteries and water" LOL

I was inspired by my friend Tracy's card that she made with a snowman called Jolly!  So cute!
Snowflakes!  Snowmen! I just recently received these from Purple Onion Designs. So glad I had the time to use them now and not next year! 

I have an idea for one more card for Christmas - if time will permit!  But I want to get started on my baking - my grandkids love jam tarts.  I make raspberry, strawberry and lemon tarts!!!  Of course, I sample along the way:) Yum!   

Thanks so much for stopping by - and just in case I am not back, happy & merry everything to everyone - whatever you may be celebrating, Happy Hanukkah, Merry & Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with wonderful blessings for you and yours! Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Card Recipe:
Both backgrounds are from Purple Onion Designs and the snowmen - all are rubber stamps.

Stardust on the snowmen and snow, and snowflakes.  Card has been mounted onto another card front and the snowmen have been mounted for the 3D effect.  Sentiment on Jolly is from IO and Berry's sentiment is from my stash that I had for ages.
