Little by little I am unpacking from our trip.  Today I thought I'd tackle the bag that held my craft stash, what I took with me as well as some purchases I made in Florida.  I haven't put any of it away yet.  It is mostly on my dining room floor in little piles.  
I sort of got distracted.  
In among the papers was an adorable digi from the Ice Fishing set by Deedee's Digis that I didn't want to lose.  It gave me the perfect excuse to finally use my new Cuttlebug machine.  I used a Spellbinder's scalloped oval die to cut the image making it ready to pop on a card.  Then I came across a pack of paper (from the Stampfest show I went to in Clearwater) which was a perfect match for the colors in the precolored digi.  It didn't take long to get the Cuttlebug back out to die cut a Memory Box Snowflake Corner from glitter paper.  And with a quick bow made from silver embroidery floss this card was born....
I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

This is what it looks like outside my front door right now.

Lots of white and it's still coming down.  That's why I thought this was a perfect card for today.
Sending warm hugs to all my friends.


  1. Such a fun card for those who still have snow! I love the image, but most of all I love that corner snowflake die! Thanks for playing along with us at Scrapy Land Challenge #13!

  2. Wow, looks like you just had more snow! It's been a few days without snowfall for us, but there's still about 3 feet on the ground. Did I mention I hate winter? But I do enjoy winter cards, and yours is adorable. Congrats on your new Cuttlebug. I couldn't live without mine. What on earth did you use before? Or did your old one break?

  3. Winter cards are perfect for your snowy landscape! We've had such a mild winter here...even the daffodils are confused! I love that snowflake corner and the sweet silver bow. Thanks for joining in the Cards in Envy Anything Goes with a Bow Challenge!

  4. This is the perfect card for the weather we have been having as well. So cute and lots of details. Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon this week.

  5. This card certainly matches that weather, Debi ! I might be heading back to Florida. :-D Love that corner die cut and your background paper just makes the image pop off the card.

  6. Oh, Debi! We probably bumped into one another at the convention! GOSH! Wish I had known you were there. Glad you could enjoy a warmer winter here, but your snowy scene looks beautiful -- as long as it is there - LOL Your card is darling!
