the spirit of christmas....


I think we are going to be getting into the Christmas spirit in the next couple of days! We have a winter storm on the way for Wednesday...so today I brought out a stamp from Whipper Snapper! I love stamping up snowmen and glittering them all up... this card was inspired by another blogging friend Danielle. She did a card today using non traditional colours and I thought...fantastic idea! Get out of my comfort zone and try something a little different! Thank-you Danielle!
