Stampin B's Challenge #41 Winter Fun

(If you are looking for my CCEE challenge card, please go down to the previous post. Since both are posted at the same time, I will try to switch their place each week.....trying to stay equal and fair...lol!!!)


The Stampin B's challenge this week was to have some winter fun with our card/project. I must confess that I have owned this Polar Bear set from SU since it was first created, but I have failed to make one card from it. So today, I dusted it off and tried coloring these images one more time. I must say that I am pleased with them FINALLY. Certainly hot cocoa, skating, and outdoor play are all things which bring joy to those who love to play in the winter time. That used to be me.....now I like to swim indoors in a heated pool, and stamp in my stamp cave...lol!!! However, a hot cocoa or two are appreciated!!!

.



I hope that those of you in the grip of winter's cold hands are finding ways to enjoy the season OR at least staying warm and toasty. We are supposed to warm up at the end of the week.....should be all the way up to the balmy 30's....lol!!!!

Have a wonderful day. And to my friends in warm areas, please send some my way...lol!!!!

You must be like Hootsie: I bet you've got semi trucks parked in your driveway in order to store all your stampin' stuff, huh? I think I just might have to make an extra effort to come help you clean out this summer. I better get Gertie to help me, too. LOL!

I love the colors, the punched snowflakes, and the cool Nesties shape you used. Both cards are very cute!

Your coloring is great Joanne!! I used to be so intimidated by white...don't have polar bears, but white as in snowmen or penguins...so glad to see you dusted this one off!! Love those colors too and the cute punches on the top.
We are almost to 50's this week, so sending some sunshine your way. (We do still have a pile of snow though.) ;)
