3 Musketeers - Flakey Friends!

Hi friends! 
 Today's card is for the 3 Musketeers monthly post :)
 If you are one of my newer blog readers, 
the 3 Musketeers are Jeanette, Barb and I ...
a group  created by Jeanette 
and I am so gracious that she invited me
to be a part of this monthly image exchange ♥
In short, the 3M is where we take turns sending a random image
to each other, then make a card based on that stamped image,
using whatever cardstock, papers and embellishments we have on hand,
and then post on the 9th of every month. 

This month, Barb was our hostess and ... hmmmm....
 I do wonder why Barb sent us this image ...
Flakey Friends?
Whatcha tryna say, Barb!!

Actually, Barb LOVES her some Whipper Snapper stamps!
Her collection is probably bigger than the WS store :)
And, as you can see, I either can't count days or I'm really late!
Truth be told, I got permission from Barb :)
I did text her and tell her my DT card blocked that day 
but my Flakey Friends card was done and I'd post on Sunday.
Thank you, Barb!

Here is my colorful and cheerful take on the Flakey Friends image,
 inside and out. I just absolutely adore this image!
I think this is my favorite holiday card of the year ♥
I adore the snow and miss it terribly.
Being in Miami, we don't even experience the sensation of winter,
let alone have my beloved snow!
So making snow, snowmen and winter cards are among my very faves.

I hope Barb and Jeanette like my take on being Flakey Flakey Friends!
Be sure to stop in and see what they've made with this same image,
though Jeanette is super flakey {tee hee!} currently moving 
and will have her card up shortly! 

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
