There's snow place like home........

The challenge this week on Lucy's blog HERE is colors (kraft, pink & turquoise). I purchased this cute little Stampendous clear set "Snow Place" a little while back and this challenge inspired me to put the stamps to paper.

I love snowmen (and snowwomen, or is it snowpeople, whatever:). I have a collection of all types of snowmen, last count was about 35 and I get a new one each year. So, needless to say snowmen stamps are my favs for the holidays.

It's the most wonderful time of the year

Recently I received an honorable mention from Hero Arts for one of my Christmas tree cards (see previous post). Hero Arts sent me the wonderful "let it snow" clear stamp set as my prize. The snowmen in this card are so cute and they have many different winter hats to wear. I chose this black top hat for Mr. Snow man to wear today. The sentiment inside the card is: It's the most wonderful time of the year :)

Item's used: Hero Arts clear design Let it snow and pine bough stamps, Cuttlebug swirl folder, gems, glitter, snowflake brad.

I have not posted a card to my blog in a while, busy making cards for a craft fair on December 4. So, I will post 2 pictures taken Saturday at the Air Force / Army football game at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. One of the pictures is Mike and I the other is of me and my 2 co-workers. Mike and I go to the inter-service game every year, they always have the best fly-overs at the game and we LOVE football. Mike was a medic in the Army, drafted right out of high school back in 1972, so of course we were rooting for Army, hate to admit this, but Air Force won. The games are fun, every time a score is put on the board the kids get out on the field and do push-ups totalling the score. Fun time for all :)
