MTTC#269 - Snowman

Hello again dear friends and followers.
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
I will be doing some of mine today.
Not looking forward to the crowds
but am looking forward to enjoying some
time with my sweet daughter.

It's time for another weekly challenge at 
My Time to Craft Challenges (MTTC).
This week's theme works really well
with both the cold snowy weather we are getting
and the upcoming Christmas holiday.
MTTC #269 is Snowman (or men)
or Snow ladies if you prefer :o)

Here's my DT card:

This is a bit larger than I usually make.
Finished size is 6 x 6. 
Funny story... it didn't start out being
nearly that big but after I got all my 
patterned papers glued down I went to
open the card to decorate the inside 
only to discover that I had glued everything 
on the card base upside down.  
Oh for pity sake!!
Have you every done that?
So... I had to cut it apart at the seam
and then add that piece to another base. 
It's a good solid (heavy) card 
that will probably cost me a fortune to mail

I am entering this card in the following challenges;
Brown Sugar Challenges #122 - Anything Goes
The Outlawz - Friday Coloring challenge - Anything Goes
The Pink Elephant Challenge #278 - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge #85 - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too #75 - Snow
Penny's Paper-Crafting Challenges #205 - Anything Goes
Paper Pretties Challenge  PWC338- Snow Much Fun
Sketch Saturday - Pick a Previous (I used #337)

Please go visit the rest of the lovely ladies
on the MTTC DT and see their gorgeous Snowman 
creations this week as well.  Hope to see
your Snowman creation in the gallery too.

Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
