DD #77, TTS3, CFC119 and OCS!! {Happy Holidays!}

Happy Sunday!! This is what we woke up to this morning here in central Alberta! It started last night and it's still snowing now but the wind has started and it's NOT nice out there!


Great day to hunker down and craft, you say?! And drink coffee?! And light candles?! HECK YA!!! Here's a card I have done for the Dynamic Duos #77 "Bold and Cheery" week:

I got my sketch from Tis' The Season Challenge blog and the option is also "STRIPES" - I used my striped embossing folder, but it is difficult to see in the photos (I promise they are there! LOL)

The adorable image is from byLORi Designs and the sentiment is from "Christmas Magic" by TAWS...I had SUCH fun coloring these cuties - here's a close up of the snow family:

The challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays is to either heat/dry I said earlier, I used my striped embossing folder but it's very hard to see in my photos - it IS there, trust me! LOL...

I would also enter my card into One Crazy Stamper's monthly "Christmas Challenge" and into Christmas Card Challenges for their "Dimension" challenge

Thanks for stopping in today - I am off to start some laundry and do some baking and will get crafty again!! Stay warm!! Cheers!
