Actually it doesn't really feel that wintry here at the moment--we're warming back up to the 50s and 60s.  The stamping world, however, is all about the cold.  And I haven't played much with my Flurry of Wishes stamp set, so guess what you get today.

Haha I should have done a big lead-in about snow and then shown you a card with a giant sun on it.  But the stamping gods are positively yelling SNOW at anyone who will listen, so I listened.  Anywha, I do like these snowflakes and the fact that they coordinate with punches--I think punches are easier for me to line up than Framelits.  But I puffy heart love Framelits too.

Today's card sketch is brought to you by the Global Design Project team:

I liked all the open space to add my flurry o' flakes.

Also check out this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge (and a ridiculously terrifically gorgeous cupcake):

And the word prompt from Inkspirational Challenges:

And the new theme challenge at The Paper Players:

Question:  is it cheating to count one card for three inspirational challenges if all three challenges are basically the same thing?  Because if it is, I think I'm about to get pelted with paper scraps again.

Well peeps, as usual I have lots to do today so I'd better get to it.  Hugs and kisses and stay warm!

Stamps:  Flurry of Wishes
Ink:  Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Pacific Point
Paper:  Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Pacific Point, Thick Whisper White

Super, Chris. I've been working with snowflakes lately on our card creations here at work. LOVE your snowflakes. They seem much fancier than mine. Are the punches easy to use? I've gravitated toward one specific brand, I believe. They seem to cut clean every single time and don't hurt your hands. You will inherit quite a punch legacy from me as I do prefer punches. LOVE those.

What a lovely collection of falling snowflakes - love the mix of blues you used and the sentiment panel with bold blue snowflake that really draws the eye. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!
