Snowmen On My Mind

Think it was the cold weather today, that made me think of snowmen - no snow yet, but we have frost during the nights now.....brrrrrr!! When outside today, I tried day dreaming of steaming hot tea, hot chocolate etc. but somehow my mind kept wandering back to the freebie stamp Duck Snowball Warrier! on Dude Time Doodles blog and their latest challenge.

Inspiration to the card design was needed, and stumped across Sketch N Stach Challenge 74 - some wrapping paper I bought years ago, with the intent of using it as design paper instead, could be perfect as the background. Then adding some snowflakes, which was stamped by a friend - and the let it snow banner, was made of scrap white paper and stamped with a freebie from a card magazine.
