More Winter Memories

The Winter Memories set is sure bringing back some good childhood memories!  I was so blessed to have a wonderful childhood and a brother to share it with.  I remember being so excited to make a snowman, especially with that first snow of the season.

Freshly Made Sketches had a wonderful sketch by Rita this week.  I love the CASness of this sketch. 

Jingle Belles wants to keep up the momentum so they have an Anything Goes challenge for the month of December.

CAS Challenge at SCS last week was to make a card based on the quote - 
 I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night- Galileo 
I embossed some stars in the sky before sponging it.  I thought of going to to play in the snow after supper. That was the best time to play.

Simon Says Stamp Challenge also has anything goes.  I've never been to that challenge before and I can't believe how many entries they have! They have a great prize. 

Pixie's Crafty Workshop is always a fun place to visit. If you haven't been there before,  do go visit.

Queen for the Day at SCS this week is Julia aka craftyjulia.  I chose this adorable card as inspiration.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Winter Memories, More Merry Messages
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, SU Markers
Paper:  Whisper White, Midnight Muse, DSP scraps

OK, I'm off to work on those Christmas cards again and make another batch of my snacks to get in the mail.  They smell so good and my tummy is growling.  Maybe I'll stop to eat some first. 

I'm so glad you stopped by.

I would still love to build a snowman - but no snow ever falls around this part of Texas! Sigh!!!
But I could look at your card all day long and just dream - so beautiful!

Mmmm....what are those snacks you were making to ship? Bet they're good, no matter what they are!

Your card brings back fond memories for me too, of playing in the snow. My kids unfortunately don't have too many days with snow in their pasts. Hope global warming allows us some snow days this winter.
