SOS Challenge #80 "Snow/Winter"

Sorry I have been away for a bit...very busy time of year and we are in the process of becoming "empty-nesters"! We moved one of our boys into his own house a week and a half ago...first had to do LOTS of cleaning! But OUR house is actually looking a little bit emptier....now for son #2....he will move into his own place hopefully in January. More packing and more cleaning. Yikes! I'm getting just a little sick of it! But it is really fun to see how excited they are. I will miss them though...they are great guys and we get along SO good. You know, its nice to feel needed! But, yes, my hubby will still need me. Its all good!

So this week I made a quick card for the challenge at Shopping Our Stash...I AM still on their DT. 
I say "quick" because of the digi images and papers I used...made it super easy to coordinate everything! The digis are from Daydream Designs by Diane Noble and her co-designer, Kris Breach. The image set is called "Snowbabies Color Digi Set" and the matching digi papers are from the "Winter Chill" and "Winter Flakes" sets. The sentiment is from "Snowbabies Sentiments" (of course!). The punched snowflake I got on eBay and I'm not sure of the brand. They have a nice coating of Stickles "Star Dust" on them too. The snowballs are hand-drawn (by me!) but there are some included in the digi sets. I knew I wanted to draw the "splatted" snowball on the inside so I just drew all of them and fussy-cut them.

The border punch is a Martha Stewart..."Doily", I think.
Well, now that its done, I'm not sure who to send it to...some people I don't want to encourage to throw snowballs because I have a good idea who they'd throw them at!
I hope you can join our challenge this week at SOS: you have two choices, either the one I used, "Snow/Winter" or "Christmas/Hanukkah".
Thanks for stopping by today!
