Let it...SNOW!

Hello friends!
Wow, it seems really weird typing this, but this will actually be my very first card creation of the New Year!  Even though I posted, it was just my past creations.  I actually only created one card between Christmas and the New Year!  It was a really great Holiday break though and I enjoyed spending my time with my family.  I sure hope you all did too.

So for today's card, it's actually pretty fitting for what's been going on around my area.  We just got our first ground covering of snow in our new house.  It's very pretty and thankfully not too much of it! LOL!!  Now it's gotten REALLY cold out!  Woke up to 2 degrees this morning! Brr!

But this one will be my tribute to that for today...
This one is real simple and so fun!
I noticed that CAS-ual Friday has come back with their first challenge of this year and are asking for CAS cards with felt and sequins.  I have had a set of these cute pieces of felt accent pieces for such a long time, so it was fun to come up with a way to use one of them!

I found this fun "SNOW" stamp by Great Impressions.  You can see that the "O" is slightly larger then the rest of the wording and fits a snowflake image perfectly inside!  It's hard to tell in the photo, but I have stamped the word image with ink and while it was still wet, I sprinkled it with clear embossing powder and heat set that in.  The "let it" wording and tiny snowflake images comes from my beloved Lawn Fawn set called none other than "Let it Snow"....I just taped off the 'snow' part of the sentiment and just stamped the partial image to fit with my design.

The main panel was die cut with my Lawn Fawn stitched journal die cut and then I just placed a matching blue border around it and popped it up off the card base.

I hope you've enjoyed my first card of the New Year! :)  I plan on making MANY more this year, so I hope you'll stop by several times to join me here!
Have a great day my friends!

This is so pretty, Vicki! I always envy those who get to experience snow on a regular basis. The last time it snowed here on the Texas Gulf Coast was Christmas Eve 2004.
