Oh, what a gallery to peruse! Vicki, I about got lost. I finally chose this card, because of the wreath, which inspired the round shape, and then I got carried away with the Christmas spirit! Keeping the white theme, and Christmas, I changed it to a round card.
My family loves snow, and I have so many fond memories of my kids growing up. We'd go to the mountains in our small truck, have a camp stove and our own tailgate party with chicken noodle soup, and cocoa. And spend all day zipping downhill! So, that is why this is called Snowman Soup. Thanks for all your sweetness in this place Vicki. You are a huge encourager to every QFTD, FS, the Favs of the Week....everyone! BIG hugs to you girlfriend.
Main image is watercolored and blinged up. Background paper came pre-stitched and reminds me of frost. Love it! (Last piece! Wah....)
Thanks for looking!

Oh Pat, I can never decide what I look forward to more, your little stories or the finished goods!!! This gorgeous "Snowman Soup" looks very much at home in My Favorites. Thanks so much for ALWAYS putting a smile on my face.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
That fluffy yarn is the perfect embellishment for this precious snowman. He definitely looks like he just fell down the slope and I love all the sparkle you added to him. What a great memory you shared about the simple pleasures of skiing and family tailgating with hot soup and cocoa. The shared memory is as good as the project.

Pat, this is so fluffy and sparkly, I can almost feel the snowflakes !! Just darling, and makes me homesick for Alaska! Thanks for sharing your family memory - some of my best memories are of tobagganing with our youth group with a bon fire to warm us up!

Awwww, Pat, this is absolutely adorable.... I love the round die cut background interwoven with the icy glittery fluff that you adorn this card with.... But the masterpiece is the Snowman - he is just waaaay too cute. I love how you were able to give him a look of complete & blissful satisfaction upon his face, he has totally enjoyed his day of zipping downhill. I so enjoy and look forward to seeing your beauiful creations each week, but I also love enjoy your stories that really adds to the aura of each of your creations. I also want to thank you for your uplifting and encouraging words. I so apprecate you taking the time out of you day to help make this such a special day for me... I do appreciate it..... Thanks again....

Oh, so sad about that being the last piece! I guess we have a little 'hoarding' in all of us...I hate to see such beautiful paper be gone! Well, you've surely done it justice with this adorable card, Pat...what wonderful memories from your past all sweetly tied up into this darling snowman card! Love the wisps of snow, the cute image and the super sparkle!
