"It's Beginning To Feel A Lot Like" Winter And A Winner Too!

Our new winner for the "What You Like To Drink Challenge" is Ellen Taylor at The Serendipitous Stamper.  Congratulations, Ellen, and happy shopping!  If the rest of you missed all of the entries for the challenge, please check them out HERE.

It's that time of year when Winter and Christmas are in the air everywhere in this part of the world.  I thought it might be great to review some of the cards created by our Design Team with a Winter and/or Christmas theme!  I decided to visit their albums, which is always fun, and here is what I found for you.  By clicking on their cards below you can go to the posts on their blogs.

This post from Daniela Dobson, uses Snow Many Presents image, Snow Many Presents sentiment, and Cover-A-Card Dotty Pattern, just really brings Winter and Christmas both into focus!

Next is Dina Kowal's card using Poinsettia, Rose Music, and Season Of Hope.  Her dimensional use of the flower is just stunning.

Below you see Jeanne Streiff's adorable card using Snow Angel and Cover-A-Card Christmas Text.  A very beautifully built snow angel!!

Jenny Gropp created this 'sweet' card with Gingerbread Boy, Holiday Word Border, and Delicious Wishes (which can also be purchased as part of Clear Stamp set, Let Them Eat Cake).

This beautiful scene was created by Julie Koerber.  She used Cover-A-Card Birch and the beautiful sentiment All Is Calm (which can also be purchased as part of clear set All I Want For Christmas).

Julie
Laura Fulcher's warm and lovely card illustrates what a lot of us think about during the cold Winter/Christmas season.  She used Comfort Cocoa, sentiment Comforting Cocoa, and Cover-A-Card Large Dots.
