We were to choose a weather theme to send to another Tea Potter--Yeah ---I chose winter, as our weather has been sooooooooo very warm so far. Eb the card base with snow flake folder, distress edges and snowflakes, next layered white--distressed edges, then my winter bg paper to which I added some stamped snowflakes, distressed edges, used scallop punch to do corners, stamped the sweet and sassy snowman, used colored pencils to color him and used nestie to cut out, distress edges, stamp snowflakes, used glossy accents here and there, popped him on scallop nestie and popped both up with pop dots, made the verse on computer, cut, distressed, stamped snowflakes on it--popped up. Added ribbon.

Yes, with temperatures making it into the triple digits I tell people this is why I don't mind snow. It's much harder to get cooler than warmer I think, but your snowman certainly looks cool along with his friend. Love it!
