Cold Outside...BRRRR

This weeks challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges is to make something that reminds you of the cold.  That works perfect for me today, because here in Oregon we finally received a little snow.

It snowed just about 1 1/2 inches total today, but enough to cancel school today.  My kids thought that was awesome!  They got to get out and enjoyed throwing snowballs for a while.  It all melted by this afternoon, but I made a card that reminds me of the chilly snowy weather.
This is a picture out our back door early this morning.  Looks like about 1" on the railing.

Here is one of my kids enjoying the snow before it melted today.
Here is the cute card I made today.  I used the back side of the Miracle paper with the stripes.  I also used Amethyst paper and Heavenly blue paper.  I stamped the snowflakes using Grey Flannel ink.  I also stamped the cute snowman using grey flannel ink and then colored it in.  Stamp sets used are:  D1317 Feathery Flakes for the snowflakes and the the word "Winter" on the hat.  D1244 Snow Friends set for the adorable snowman (I think it more like a snowgirl).  I added a couple of sparkles to the buttons and some Glitter Glitz to the snow coming down.  I added a little velvet ribbon on a piece of white cardstock that I punched out with my SU border punch.  Doesn't it just warm your heart.....

Thanks for looking and remember to post your creations so I can see your beautiful chilly artwork.
