Snow is Coming - lets celebrate!

There is something special and exciting about the first snow of the season.  I live in Maine and tonight we are expecting the first "Nor Easter".  Not your typical Maine Nor Easter because they are only calling for 1-3 inches of snow.  A typical Nor Easter for Maine is 10-14 + inches of snow.  But the first snow is coming so I made my first winter/Christmas card.

My image came from www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com it is her freebie snowman file.  I didn't want to make a typical standing snowman so I made him  looking up at the sky - as if he was watching the snowflakes falling to the ground.


Red cardstock - Pebbles "Welcome Christmas" paper stack (really nice weight paper)
White cardstock - from my stash, embossed with the cuttlebug embossing folder
glitter - Crystal snow, from Stampendous!
Crystal stickles were used on the hats rim
Liquid Glass, from CTMH were used on the eyes

I am entering this card in 10 challenges!!!
