Winter Blast!

Happy Tuesday! It is snowing here once again and turning to ice and freezing rain later in the afternoon. I am so ready for Spring even though we have about 2 months more of snow. Being Tuesday it is also time for another fantastic challenge at
This week we're staying with the time of year so the theme this week is Winter Blast. We also have a fabulous sponsor this week Whimsy Stamps.
Their stamps are just too adorable so wouldn't like to win some! Don't put those winter stamps away just yet and come play with us this week. We were lucky enough to be given some of their cute images to create some wonderful cards to inspire you this week. Be sure to check out what the ladies have created for you to see.

I did this card in some of my favorite colors. The DP that I used is from Bearly Mine Designs, her digital papers are so beautiful they can be addicting. I also tried to make it look frosty so I used a lot of real glitter on everything. I am not sure you can see it all especially on the DP. Besides snowmen I love winter animals for my cards, like these cuties!

Here are some other wonderful challenges that fit my card
