TPB: Let it snow!


Happy Monday, friends!

It's so wonderful seeing the photos that online friends 
are posting with blankets of snow on the ground.  
It's a stunning sight to behold - 
in the stillness, the soft snow banks and the trees covered with white glory!
  For me, it's absolute BLISS. 
 I grew up with winters and snow ~ and miss it terribly. 


 It's so funny to see people say things like "Let it snow ....... somewhere else!"
I'd give ANYTHING to have that joy of winter!
In exchange, I can give you gorgeous tropical breezes, 
swaying palm trees and sandy beaches while watching the blue surf roll in :)

Sound good?!

Speaking of snow, today's the day I post to The Project Bin blog.
I decided to break out North Pole - I know you've seen it a few times 
if you are a regular blog reader!
That's because ~ I love it!
It's such a wonderful and versatile stamp set and perfect for this time of year ♥






And did I mention it's funny as well?

Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep the crafters
from making cards!

To create this card, I die cut all the bits and pieces and panels ...
set those aside, and stamped the sentiment right onto the front panel.  
For the "let it snow" sentiment, I wanted just the wording from the snowflake stamp (this is actually the center) so I did some simple masking.
The trees are created from a die from CC Designs (ret'd)
and the snowbanks are a stitched grass/wave die from Pink and Main.

While I normally 'do up' the inside of my cards, too,
this one is thick and heavy from the front!
Hopefully the person this is heading to won't mind :)

You can see the entire stamp set here ↓




And you can find this set and more in the shop.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
