Happy Snow Day

I was able to combine three challenges with my one card today.  I've said it before, but I really love it when this happens.  Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #127 this week is a Christmas Bingo challenge.  I chose die cut, ribbon or twine and kraft as my challenge.  For Color Throwdown #311, we have to use a lime-y green, grey, light blue and kraft colors.  And for Simon Wednesday Challenge, it's Anything Goes for this week. 

I used my new stamp set from Stampin' Up called Endless Wishes.  I stamped the snowflakes with Gina K's Craft ink, SU's Smoky Slate, Pear Pizzazz and Bashful Blue inks on Gina K's Pure 
White Luxury Card stock.  I cut a piece of SU's Crumb Cake card stock and folded it over.   I ripped the card stock across and then die cut out PaperTrey Ink's Wonderful Words: Snow from the Crumb Cake card stock and also die cut Snow out of SU's Bashful Blue card stock and pieced it into the Crumb Cake card stock.  I then stamped the words Happy and Day in Pear Pizzazz from SU's Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set.  I finished the card off with Blue and Green bakers twine and grey DMC floss and added some Wink of Stella.

I remember snow days being so much fun when I was a kid.  I don't like them so much now...only because I still have to go to work.  After last winter, I am very grateful for my 4-wheel drive Jeep!  There were quite a few times this past winter I had to drive down roads that were not plowed!  I keep hearing this winter could be worse then last year's.  I sure hope not! 

We are having gorgeous weather.  It's more like summer than fall.  So I will quit talking about winter.  Enjoy the weekend!  We are planting a new tree, splitting daisies and lilies and planting some mums.  We are working on re-doing our front planting area.  

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to check out the other beautiful cards at Merry Monday's Christmas Challenge, Simon Wednesday Challenge and Color Throwdown.  You, also, still have time to post a card for any of these challenges, too!
