Snowflakes . . .

Good Day my friends!
It looks like I'll be away from home most of the day, so I thought I'd quickly share a card I made last evening for this week's Cheery Lynn Designs challenge which is

After much thought, I decided to keep this card pretty simple and ALL ABOUT snowflakes!  I've used the CLD #DL175 Laced Pine Snowflake for the focus image(s) on this card.  After die cutting this image three times on white paper, I sponged various Tim Holtz distress inks on two of them for the coloring.  
The background paper is from a holiday DCWV 12x12 pack and I've had this Sarasota Stamps snowflake sentiment for years and had never used it!  My hugs and smiles sentiment is from Verve Stamps (#vsb-10-023 Kind Words).

A few challenges I'd like to enter into:
Paper Pretties #293 - Monochromatic
Paper Shelter #141 - Winter Blues

Well I'd better get moving!  
I'm headed to the dentist ... no problems ... routine cleaning!  Then I'm stopping by my Mom's to see how she's doing.  She took a nasty fall on the ice on Sunday (required a trip to the E.R. for a CT Scan and to see if the cut on the back of her head required stitches).  THANK GOD the scans came back clear of concussion and no stitches were required.  Now if I could just get her to sit down and put her feet up for awhile!
She'll be 84 on Jan. 27th and I can't keep up with her!!  
She's a busy lady!!

Thanks for stopping by ... have a fabulous day!
As always . . .
