3M: Dashing through the snow!

Good morning, friends!

It's the 9th of the month, 
the day the 3 Musketeers post our cards with a surprise image :)
This was my month to provide the image
and this is the one I chose:
Snowy Trio by Purple Onion Designs.

I bought this stamp and matching sentiment the SECOND I saw it
while blog surfing ... 
It was love at first sight!

Call me crazy, but I love and long for the snow! ♥
Having grown up mostly in Europe with real winters and lots of snow,
I miss all wonders and beauty of it.
Alas, here in South Florida we had "sand"men and
lights strung up in palm trees and iced cocoa, LOL! :)

Here is my take on the image this month:

My card has a base of dsp from a mish-mash holiday blend,
and I've added sugar stickles to the 'snowy' areas.
I've added a snowflake from my stash that I covered in white faux snow paint
and then sprinkled it with Martha Stewart glitter, and a pearl adorns the cent

 Be sure to see what Barb and Jeanette have made 
with the image as well .... you won't want to miss it!
Next month, Barb is up and I'm sure she has something fun 
in store for us ♥

Big hug, Bigger Blessings!
