Is it Snowing at Your house?

Hello Dear Friends! 
  With Christmas drawing closer and closer, I'm in great need of more holiday cards for my own friends and family.  What better way to create a quick & easy card than using your die cuts.  That's exactly what I've done today!

Plus, I wanted to participate in the current Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge which is to use Red & Green.  I have several Christmas sentiment dies from Cheery Lynn Designs in my stash, but I keep coming back to my all time favorite holiday sentiment die which I've used today: 


I'm still in the process of trying to use up some of my scraps so I must confess this entire card was created from my scrap pile ... how great is that!  Whew!  Even the 'snow' is simply torn white card stock from the pile.  My background piece is actually 'two' pieces which I've put together then 'camouflaged' by using the Frosty Border piece.

The dies used today are:
Memory Box - 98171 - Frosty Border

The little 'snowflakes' floating around are the extra pieces that came out of the Spellbinder S6-015 Snowflakes View die set and were laying on my work table!  Nothing goes to waste around here! LOL!

Here are a few other challenges I'd like to share in today!
A Gem of a Challenge - Anything Christmas
Di's Digi Challenge - Christmas
Hiding in My Craft Room - Christmas Colors

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!
As always . . .
