{MTSC51} It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Happy Holidays from Nebraska
where there is a winter storm warning for tomorrow!
Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la!!! :)

In case you were wondering . . . I don't like winter and I especially despise the bitter COLD temps! If I could stay indoors and look out the window, I think I could appreciate the beauty in the SNOW. But since I have to go to work, that means driving on icy roads. Ugh!
You would think since I was born and raised here in Nebraska, I would have adapted to our winters, but as I get older I can see why so many have flocked to the southern states! I'm ready! :)

And speaking of being ready . . . are you ready for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge? It's another humdinger! Mercy puts so much thought into her layouts and they are always such a wonderful source of cardmaking inspiration!

Once again I've used the Stampin' Up! *Snow Buddies* hostess set and paper pieced the hats & scarves to match the designer paper. Last week Mercy razzed me about not doing any stitching on my card, so I let her have it today! LOL :)

Now it's your turn! Just create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above, and link your creation to Mister Linky on Mercy's blog. Be sure to use the keyword MTSC50 when uploading to a public gallery. Thanks so much for playing along!

Happy Stamping & Smiles 2 U!

BE safe! This is our 2nd snow day and it would have been a snow day for us even if the school didn't cancel as we aren't dug out.

LOVE your card! The stitching makes it so extra special.

Such wonderful snowmen cards you've been making Pam. I'm especially fond of the grey and sage one down below. It's a wonderful color combo.
