Double D - Let it Snow!

Hello Dear Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm hosting today and as you can see by my blog title ... the theme is


Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!
(use anything SNOW related)

Here's the mood board I've created to help inspire you . . .



 Well Christmas isn't far away and I'm hoping we have a White Christmas this year.  I have so many wonderful childhood memories of winter holidays ... off school, sled riding, building a snowman, having snowball battles with my sisters and the neighborhood kids.  I can remember we even built an IGLOO one year and my dad put a light inside for me!  That was really cool stuff for a young kid!
  So that's what I was thinking of when creating today's card.


Now mind you, I grew up in Pennsylvania and we never had any Moose running through the yard but we certainly saw our share of deer and other critters!  LOL


 Can you see the sparkle on the snow and the holiday lights on the house?  LOL
(oops from this angle it appears one string of lights might be out ... lol ... it happens!)


 The dies I have used to create my winter snowball throwing scene are:

Impression Obsession 'Snowball Fight'
Impression Obsession - Dies - Snowball Fight

Poppystamps 'Winter Cabin'
Poppystamps - Dies - Winter Cabin
Poppystamps 'Whittle Moose'

Poppystamps - Dies - Whittle Moose

Hunkydory Moonstone Dies 'Prancing Pixies' (icicles) 
Hunkydory - Moonstone Dies - Prancing Pixies

Hunkydory Moonstone Dies 'A Holly Jolly Christmas' (sentiment)
 Hunkydory - Moonstone Dies - A Holly Jolly Christmas

This is such a cute card, Darlene, and it sure bespeaks all the fun of a snow day for the kids! You made me giggle about the one string of lights being out. Yes, it happens! I love the way you added the moose. He looks like he's having as much fun as the kids!

Such fun memories and many like my own, except we never built an igloo. Wonderful winter scene. I just got the poppy Stamp cabin but have not used it yet. Thanks for the inspiration. Merry Christmas.

so cute, I love the fun winter scene you have created here. We made what we called Forts in the snow in the winter, but we didn't have lights in ours :) That die makes a pretty frame for it too!
