Vintage Let It Snow . . .

Happy Monday All!
Well, it appears 'old man winter' has finally
come to visit us here in N.E. Ohio!
Yep ... it's snowing & blowing and there's more to come.

So what better way to spend a snowy Monday
then to craft and make something pretty!

Every time I see a shaker card online I sigh
because they look so fabulous and I NEVER think
to make them myself.  Well ... today's the day!!

In fact, the challenge at the Memory Box blog is to make a shaker card
and I have used the Memory Box Shaker Square Frames (#30030)
 and Square Layers (#30021) for today's shaker card.

When I saw that the challenge on the Poppystamps blog was
'Sparkly Snow', I knew these two would work
together perfectly.  
How adorable is this sweet vintage image that 
I found online.  And of course the Poppystamps 'stacked
mittens' (#1267) was the ideal embellishments.
 A few additional challenges to share in:
Alphabet Challenge - W for Window
DRS Designs Challenge - The Weather Outside
Morgan's ArtWorld Challenge - Anything Goes 
Julia Spiri Challenge - ATG/Monotone

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hope you're having a fabulous start to your week!
As always ...

Papers:  White cs, Maja Design 'Vintage Frost Basics' 6x6 design paper, clear acrylic
Dies:  Sue Wilson Festive Collection 'Peeking Snowflake' (CED3022), Poppystamps and Memory Box dies mentioned above
Accessories:  Pop dot, Foam tape, JoAnn's snowy glitter

Great idea to use the vintage image for the back of your shaker card. the mittens and sentiment are perfect for this design.
