Do you have snow for Christmas?

Hello my friends!
Here we are on Christmas Eve Day and before I shut down my computer for the next few days, I wanted to share with you a couple of cards I made for the Craft A Scene Challenge . . . WINTER SCENE.

 We had a snow storm here on Friday which left us a nice coating of the white stuff!  It of course stopped me & hubby from visiting with our kids but it's still nice to have snow for Christmas.  HENCE my SNOWY background on both cards. 

Products used on these cards are:
Papers:  White cs, Black cs
Inks:  Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Broken China & Stormy Sky), Colorbox Chalk Ink (Rose Coral), Momento (Cantaloupe), Versafine Black
Stamps:  Stampscapes (Rocky Peak - 188F, Pine Row - 150E, Leafy Branch - 277F), Memory Box (Snowy Pine Landscape - F1900), Rubber Stampede (Pine Tree - A1605F), Stampendous (Branch Songster - Q133), Penny Black (Winter Sky - 4204L), Hero Arts Sentiment
Accessories:  Stickles, Quickie Glue, Prisma Glitter,  Large Sponge Daubers, Tim Holtz (Peeled Paint) Marker, Gold Wilton doily, Spellbinder Scallop & Classic Oval dies, Martha Stewart (Icicle Border Punch, Branch Punch, Snowflake Punch)

For some reason the "icicle Stickles" I used on the mountain tops looks GREEN ... hmmmm ... oh well, at least it sparkles!  LOL! 

Other challenges:
Addicted to Stamps Challenge - Blue Christmas/Winter
Gingerloft Challenge - Christmas or Winter
Great Impressions - Anything Goes
Order of the Opus-Gluei - Baby It's Cold Outside (Let It Snow song)
One Stop Craft Challenge - Christmas Carol (Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!)

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to stop by and take a peek at my work.  I hope you draw as much inspiration from me as I do from all of you amazingly talented crafters!!
