Snow, Mittens, Sleds, Ice, Cold...

What do the words cold, snow, ice, warm clothes, wreaths, Santa, pine trees all remind you of? Winter, of course! And this month at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' our challenge is all of these's an ANYTHING GOES WITH WINTER challenge.

This month we're sponsored by Ppinky Dolls Art. If you haven't seen these cute images, please stop by the link and check them out. There are some awesome images that fit our challenge at the Ppinky Dolls Art store! Thank you, Chrishanthi, for sponsoring us this month!

I used this adorable image named Winter Day for my card.

This is my first attempt at my new Pastel Chalk Pencils. They were great to use and although I need to practice more, I think they might become one of my favorite coloring mediums. I used a tree die by Memory Box, a holly border punch by Martha Stewart, the stitched snow on the bottom is a die by Lawn Fawn, the die cut around my image is by Marianne Design and the words "Holiday Cheer" are a die cut by Paper Smooches. I was generous with my Hero Arts Snow glitter and added a touch of clear glitter on their hats and the roof of the house.

Our sponsor, Ppinky Dolls Art, has generously donated 3 digital images, of the winner's choice, to our challenge this month. Click on any of the colored links to go and visit this store of adorable images!                 

The Team at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' have created some adorable cards with these sweet and cute images this month. I hope you'll go over to the CaSS site and take a look at their projects and will join us this month for our ANYTHING GOES WITH WINTER challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'!


  1. Aw, what a winter wonderland scene you've created here, Gail. Cute image and I'm sure the little pup on this one is what clinched your selection! Great addition of the trees and snowy hill.
