I'd Melt for You

Hi everyone! We had my son's preschool holiday concert tonight. I was pretty worried--he had been talking about how he didn't want to stand up in front of everyone. He did great! I have no idea if he was actually singing, but it didn't matter--I was so proud of him. :)

This week's CAS-ual Friday's challenge is to use a snowflake(s) or snow of some sort. As a note, the challenge will be ending early (midnight ET on Wednesday).

I used snow, as in a snowmen, for my card this week:

I'd Melt for You

Aren't those snowmen so cute! They're from Newton's Nook Design's Frozen Friends set. I colored them with Copics and fussy cut them on the Crate paper. I used a PTI heart die to die-cut the window--it reminds me a little of a cookie cutter with the scallops. Or maybe I'm just thinking about cookies. hee hee

Here's a close-up:

My card today is also on the Newton's Nook blog, along with a few other cards Jen is sharing as my last post. :(  Jen is a real sweetheart, and NND is a fantastic company to work with. Thank you for having me on the team! I'm going to miss my design teammates, too. They are such a talented bunch!

Have a great weekend! Thank you for stopping by!
