My Craft Spot Challenge...

Hey Ya'll,
Well, today is our turn for another Challenge over at My Craft Spot.  This week is about Snow Fun.  For this card, I wanted to make something fun and cheerful.  I know someone who is going through some rough times right now and thought this would be great for encouragement.
 The stamps are from "Winter Wonderland" and "Friends and Neighbors" by My Craft Spot.  The snowman is from Christmas Cards, the snowflakes are from Paper Trimmings, the signs are from Walk in my Garden and the oval is from CTMH Art Philosophy.  I also printed the oval paper from Enjoy the Seasons on the Imagine. 
 Everything is inked using a chocolate ink and the ribbon is Chocolate Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot as well.  The hat and scarf paper is a knit print from some black cards I got out of the dollar bin at Michaels.
For the inside, I used two different stamps from the "Friends and Neighbors" stamp set by My Craft Spot.  I thought they were perfect to go along with the theme of this card.

Well, I sure hope you like our project today.  Be sure to hop over the My Craft Spot to see what the other wonderful designers have come up with and to join in on the challenge this week!  We would love to hear your comments and really appreciate you sharing your time with us today!

Oh... One more thing...  Today is my Birthday and I wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful e-mails and comments.  It really means a lot!  We both have birthdays this month.  Jill's is on the 24th.  We just wanted to throw in a big hug and thanks to you all!  Jill got her card early and it's had such wonderful comments.  We have really enjoyed them!  Have a great one!  Off to work for us.  Maybe we will get to go out to dinner later in the week or something.  Hee! Hee!  Oh... and I would share my birthday card from Jill with you... but... she hasn't made one yet.  Hee! Hee!  Oh well... better late than never, right?  Hee! Hee!
