Another 'friendly' challenge . . .

Happy Thursday Friends!
As another month draws to a close, Michigan BFF Diane (Nellie's Nest) has challenged me to play along with her over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge Blog where the code word this time around is

Keeping in mind that this is CAS (clean and simple) challenge, I have actually only used my card base and one single silhouette styled die cut ... LOVE how it turned out!

The die I have used is new to me from Spellbinder called 'Sledding' (S4-824).  A white gelly roll pen was used to create the snowflakes in the sky!   These kids had better hurry home ... it's appears to be getting quite dark out there and starting to snow pretty hard!!  LOL

Other challenges to share in:
Cards 4 Guyz Challenge #243 - Die as main focus (entry #2)
Dream Valley Challenge #224 - Our 4 legged friends
AAA Cards #164 - One Image
NBUS Challenge #13 - (Never before used Die)
Little Red Wagon Challenge #547 - White (or any color) Space (mine is black)

Be sure to pop over to Diane (Nellie's Nest) blog to see her silhouette card ... it's a beauty!!

I hope you'll stop back tomorrow!
With it being a new month, I will have lots to share and inspire you with.
See you then!
Have a great day!

 AS ALWAYS . . .
