Let It Snow - The Challenge #51

Happy Monday!

Time for another challenge at 

This week is an 
inspiration challenge 
with a super, warm-your-heart 
kind of inspiration!

The Design Team has cooked up some really fabulous projects to inspire you further!

Here's my card:

The white background is white cardstock painted with gesso and then swiped with a blue gelato stick blended with water. The hill die is a fancy border die is Spellbinders.  The sled and Santa hat are dies from Poppy Stamps.  The sentiment die is Lawn Fawn.  Scalloped stitched background is WPlus9. The bear is a stamp set from Memory Box and I glittered him.  
I'm a tad late getting my card posted.  I've been spending some time with my youngest son, Ben.  He may be moving out again shortly after the holidays when he is promoted to management of a new JM store in Chapel Hill.  And, with the big screen temporarily in the living room while the family room gets a floor makeover, he's forced to spend more time upstairs (his room is in basement next to family room) with his folks! I don't think he really minds since we let him control the remote.  ;)  

Warm Wintry Challenge Blessings!
