Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow....

WOW..  It has been a whole week since I last posted..  It was a pretty
busy week for me.. But I am back with a fun little card I made for
City Crafter Blog Challenge.

This week host is the very sweet and talented Cheryl. And I just
love the challenge she has come up with.  Perfect for this time of the year.


The challenge is to come up with a creation using snow.
It can be a snowflake or a snowman, etc...

On my card I cheated a little again.  This is just a sticker I picked
up at a local craft store..  I just thought he was so darn cute.

To play along you can hop on over to CCCB!
Or just check out the rest of the Design Teams cards

I originally came up with another card..

I had got this image awhile ago.  Once again It was so long
ago I don't know where I got it.  But I just love it.
After I finished it I really didn't know if it was a snowflake or
an ornament...   So I decided to make another card.. 
As you know you can never have
to many cards. . And it gave me a good reason to buy that
cute little fella above..


I also wanted to say Thank you  to Lori & Kirsty!
 They have both been so sweet to give
me these Blog awards..

So with these award  I am suppose to state 8 things about myself..
So here it goes.

1. I am a wife and a mother.  Soon to be Grandma!

2. I am a Preschool Teacher.

3. I Looove to go camping with my Best Friend (hubby)

4. I have two very old kitties. (they like to go camping also)

5. I love to work out in my yard.

6. My two favorite hobbies are making cards and taking photos.
(I bet you already knew that one)

7.  I love to play Tennis.

8. I am not a real big Shopper.  Unless it is at a craft store.
I wish I could have someone buy all my clothes for me because I
really am not very good with fashion.  Just give me some jeans and a
sweatshirt and I am in heaven..

I just wanted to thank the two of you for thinking of me,
That was so sweet..   Now I am going to have to
Think about who to pass this on to. 
There are so many wonderful blog friends out there..

Thanks for stopping by and visiting me and leaving such
sweet comments.  I really do appreciate them.

Hugs, Linda

Your snowman card just melts my heart. Love the bling! I'm intersested in the snow challenge on your other blog, but since the painting part of mine had already been posted (without the charms or embellishments), I decided it wasn't really I have TONS of papers to correct. Thanks for sharing you ideas and beutiful blog.
