Are the Snowflakes Falling Where You Are?

The weatherman said, for nearly a week straight, that we would have snow on Thanksgiving Day.  Well...not even a flurry,
so I decided to create my own!
This card will be available in my Etsy shop but may not last long,
so if you are interested, get on over!

These fabulous new patterned papers called 'Merrymint'
are from American Crafts.
It is a 'busy' card to be sure but I had fun with it!
The snowflakes are actually cut from Basic Grey's
'Eskimo Kisses' collection.
I used a Spellbinder's Snowflake die and the Martha Stewart  
Arctic Snowflake punch.
For the frosty icicles, I turned to Martha once again
with the Icicle Border punch.
Everything was topped off with Icicle Stickles and a few brads.
The stamp is from Inkadinkado.

This beautiful creation comes from my friend
Mona at Cupcake's Creations.
It arrived this week as a belated birthday wish along with a sweet package of metal embellishments that I happily added to my collection.  What a lovely surprise!

As if that wasn't enough, I was also informed that I won the above blog candy from Mona's blog in celebration of her 200th follower.  I must say I was incredibly surprised and can't wait to start playing with that Paisley EF from Cuttlebug.
That has been on my wish list for awhile!

Thank you so much, Mona....for honoring your followers 
but most of all, your friends...
