This first one is for a new office mate who gives us hourly updates as to whether it's going to snow on Christmas. (If you are from the Denver, Colorado area you can relate given the weather forecast - and the weather - can change dramatically!) Her two young nieces are coming from California. They have been practicing playing in the snow by throwing their arms in the air and catching pretend snowflakes on their cheeks. The pictures she shows us are absolutely charming.
And this is another reason that I love cardmaking - I had the perfect stamp and sentiment for her Christmas card!
The snowman stamp is an old, old Penny Black stamp. I couldn't find it to link it - but my search turned up the fact that Penny Black has a die in the same shape with the same smile - called Snowman Joy. Here's a Penny Black blog post showing you just how cute it is!
The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee's 6x6 paper pad called Merry & Bright.
