Welcome Snow

Spent a week at my in-laws, who live in a snowier part of the country. I cannot tell you how odd it seemed to me to look out the window every day and see snow. The best part about snow in the South is that it comes, it's pretty for a short while, and then it melts. There's nothing uglier than old, dirty snow.

Despite those reservations, I made a card celebrating snow.  The sketch is from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This sketch just spoke to me. When I saw it, I knew I wanted to make a card with it.

The cute snowman is from Paper Cupcakes, a digital company that just closed up shop. I love the twill ribbon with the mittens printed on it -- it's so cute and pairs so well with the snowman.
