It’s beginning to look a lot like winter………

Hello friends and family, today we had our furnace replaced and they will be putting the A/C in tomorrow, not like we need it right now. We were blessed with a bit of snow today and driving was a little greasy but fine if you didn’t act like it was the Indy 500. I finally finished my swap cards and they are on their way to homes in Canada and the U.S. On one of my fav. blogs I saw this sketch and decided I needed to use it, hop on over to Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge and have a look. Here is my take on the sketch.
I believe the set is Holiday Line-up, retired from Stampin’'up. I used background paper I bought 5 years ago at Wal-mart. The cardstock is Ballet Blue also retired from SU. I sparkled up their pompoms and anything else I could. The embossing folder is a cuttlebug one, the first one I ever bought. Talk about using up stash. The snowflakes were punched with a small EK punch, one that I manage to pinch my finger in at least once. the sentiment is also one of the first stamps I bought when I started stamping eons ago.
I am entering this in a couple of challenges:
Glitter and Sparkle Challenge Blog Show some BLUE
Thanks for looking today and come back again soon.
