Let it snow... let it snow.... Wait! Let it Snow?

Good Morning!  I hope you're all doing well.  It's Friday and its time to get ready for the weekend.  Now, about that title.... what the heck do I mean, let it snow?  I don't mean snow - not really.  But who can resist this bargain digi from Deedee's Digis?  This is just too darn cute!

See what I mean?  I just love snowmen - I'd have my whole house decorated in snowmen if I knew I could get away with it.  He's just a dollar and comes with a great sentiment, you can find him here.  Here's what I did with the set...

Using the sketch at 365 Cards, I took the sentiment and divided it up so that I could do the strips across the patterned paper.  Then I cut out a snowflake (SVG by Penny Duncan) and painted it with Stickles.  I finished it off with the cute little snowman.  This card is the 2nd in my collection called "One Postage Stamp, Please."  This one, however, will not be included in what I send to Operation Write Home - it has glitter.  Believe it or not, glitter on our soldiers uniforms can jeopardize their position, so please, if you're helping in the effort - do not include glitter on your cards.

Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, blue (Recollections)
Paper:  Snowflake (Open stock at Michaels)
Copics:  B000, BG09, C8, C10, E29, E34, E57, G02, G05, R27, YR16
Tools:  Cricut/SCAL, SVG file by Penny Duncan, corner rounder (CM)
Embellishments:  Artic Stickles (Ranger)

I thank you for stopping by today and I hope your Friday is fabulous!!
