Baby, it's cold outside

Good Saturday morning friends!  Welcome to Sweet Stop Saturday!

When I saw today's sketch I knew I was going to enjoy creating for it.  I love when I get to have an image large enough to not make a ton of errors in coloring!  Today's image is from The Stamping Boutique.  I thought the image and the sentiment would be perfect together so I went with it.  I just used some paper MME Signature Christmas pack and paired it with Marina Mist cardstock.  In real life this is super sparkly as there is lots of glitter pen on the snow, hearts, and such.

I will be entering this card is The Stamping Boutique's monthly contest as well as Fun With Shapes, Phindy's Place Challenge, and 4 Crafty Chicks.   I haven't really been entering challenges recently but I thought...why not so I will probably start linking more challenges up.

 Alright, here are my design team sisters blogs so make sure you go check them out and give them some love, k?

Please note that since we are moving into December I won't be posting quite as often.  A couple of my design teams are taking a break and when they do I do.  I will still be here just not quite as often.  Also, I plan on getting into digital scrapbooking through MyMemories Suite (see link on the left side bar) so I'll be showing you those pages as well as the cards I make.  I hope you'll enjoy that addition to my craftiness!  And one really neat thing is that I have a very exciting announcement on Dec 1st!

Thought of the day:  Did you know that nothing you do in this life will ever matter, unless it is about loving God and loving the people He has made. ~Francis Chan   In this 'it's all about me' world this can be difficult to hear but Francis is absolutely correct.
