It's Winter

The challenge this week at Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog is to create a winter card using a Phindy image.  The weather here in southern Ontario Canada is very wintery so this is an appropriate card right now.  One community about 1 1/2 hours away received close to 50 inches of snow in a 48 hour period at the beginning of the week.  We got 4 inches but another town about halfway between didn't get a flake - go figure.  I will be using this as one of my Christmas cards so there is a holiday message inside.

Make sure you enter your card by Thursday night for a chance to win an $8 voucher to Phindy's store.  In addition the design team will pick a card of the week and the creator will receive a 20% off voucher and have a chance at becoming a Guest Designer.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Lexis Creations - Blue & Silver
Paper Playtime - Snowflakes
Stamptacular Sunday - Blue Christmas
2 Sisters Challenge - Sparkly Christmas
