Walking In A Winter Wonderland

Don't you just love this stamp from Whimsy stamps! When I saw this stamp it brought back a wonderful memory of a dog we used to have that loved the snow when it was falling and would chase snowflakes and try to bite at them as they fell. This is another stamp that I got in my stocking this Christmas. My daughter went all out to make sure I got lots of stamping toys this year.
I used lots of sparkle on this card and I even used Crystal Effects on the tongue to make it seem wet from the snowflakes.

Once again I found some great challenges to fit this card. I am really liking all the great challenges that are out there to participate in!

Stamp with Fun Challenge 41-Snowflakes is the challenge this week. The image has snowflakes and I also made a snowflake with felt and different punched snowflakes then covered it with Twinklets.
Lots To Do Challenge-I thought this card fit this challenge perfectly, it reminds me of a wonderland I'd like to visit!
Crafty Catz Challenge #14-This challenge is bright and sparkly, I have glitter, jewel snowflakes, a sparkly snowflake and an embossed glittery back round paper. No pastel colors on this card!
Creative Inspirations Challenge 43- This challenge is New Year, New Products. I used new jewel snowflakes and felt snowflakes I just got from my LSS.
Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 121-I loved this sketch, simple but lots of fun to play with!
Crafty Ann's Challenge #5- This challenge is New Year, New Inspiration, My inspiration was to use my new stamp to show my family how much I love them for wanting to give me new stamping things that I loved.
Everybody Art Challenge #73-The challenge this week is snowflakes. I love making them to match the card!
