It's Snowing in the Sisterhood!

(click image to enlarge)

Snow, snow, and oh yeah, snow, was pretty much the theme issued by Debbie (SCS=Meredithangelmom), our hostess for November over in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards. I knew right away that I would use the super-cute "Love You This Much" set from Sweet 'n Sassy, which was a gift from a dear stampin' friend (thanks, sweetie!).

I tossed around several color combos before choosing the ever-popular red, light blue, and white. It always looks so good for snow people, don't you think?! No fancy layout, so I just jazzed things up with some fun pompom trim and glittered accents. Here's a close-up so you can see the sparkle and the shimmery background DP, although the color in the photo is a little off.

Technically, we're supposed to make standard-size cards, but the scalloped panel looked *so* much better on a 5-1/4" square, so I included square envies for the gals as well. I really like the way these turned out, so I made a couple extra for myself!

We've had snow showers in my neck of the woods for several days now. Nothing major, just a few inches here and there, but it's really adding to the holiday mood for me! I'm always hoping we have a white Christmas, and the long-range forecase is looking pretty good for that! YAY!

I'm glad you stopped by for a visit, and I'll hope you'll let me know you were here! Have a wonderful day! Let it snow!
