Crazy4Challenges #15 -- Snowflakes and Snowmen

This is my second week of hosting the Crazy4Challenges challenge. As many of you know, I love snowflakes and snowmen, so.....that is the theme I picked for this week's challenge.

I had fun with new 'toys' on this 'snow blizzard' of a card!!! The small punch I used on the horizontal panel and in the upper corners on the back panel was part of a birthday surprise from a very, very dear friend. The image was one I have had (not sure of the company as it is cling mounted) but had never inked up. I have a feeling many of next year's stash will use this adorable image. I also used a border punch I have had, but don't think I had used before. How fun is it to use new 'toys'.

Now be sure to visit the Crazy4Challenges blog and the individual blogs of the team members to see their fantabulous 'blizzard' creations! Here are the links to help you get to these blogs...

Hi, SnoSnot! Remember me? Giggle. I adore your darling snowmen in their pretty colors of purple and turquoise and look at all those snowflakes!!! The corner snowflake embellishment is particularly pretty. Snugs and snorts to you, my friend!
