Snow, snow and more snow???

The Merry Monday Challenge sure had it right this week - at least for people in my little area of the world.  We got a lot of snow again - but it's March - so it won't last long.  However, it is in the forecast for later this week.

Some snow hills have been added for this little guy to stand on and I've used the Cloudy Day embossing folder and one of the Tea Lace Paper Doilies.
For the big snowflake, I flattened one of the Soda Pop Tops through the Big Shot, pressed it into the Versa Mark Pad, dipped it in Pool Party Embossing Powder and heated it.  The snowflake inside is from "Four Seasons" and to emboss it I mixed some Pool Party and Silver Embossing Powder.  I will certainly remember this little trick when the season comes around!  To finish things off I added a wee bit of Dazzling Details around the edge of the paper just to cover it up.

Hope you have a Terrific Tuesday - we have Parent/Teacher interviews tonight so I won't be in my craft room....oh well - it's spring break next week so I'll have lots of time then.

Thanks for stopping by:
