Frosted Winter Wishes: CAS Style!

I am typing away in a craze right now to get this up before I have to leave!  Breathe, just remember to breathe!  OK....

I was browsing some of my favorite new challenges to play along with, and found this sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch!


RIGHT away an idea hit me!  This really doesn't happen often, so I took advantage of the 50 minutes left until school pick-up and put my idea to work with the Close to My Heart Frosted Workshop on the Go Cardmaking Kit!   (Do you KNOW how many ideas I get only to forget them???)


I am LOVING it!  Do you see what it is?  SNOWBALL FIGHT!  ;)

Anyway, I had also seen there was a new challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays called "In Stitches."  Guess what my card needed???  Yep!  My white gel pen was feeling the love!


I added some Silver Shimmer Trim to the mittens that I cut from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge for the Cricut machine.  My sentiment is included in the card kit and stamped as a second generation color with Twilight Exclusive Ink.  This also means I am linking up yet again with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!  ;)

A couple of extra mitten cuts rounds this one out nicely on the inside.


Yes!  I got my post finished in time!  Too much going on in real life for the next day or two, so off I go!  Thanks so much for popping in to see--I really appreciate every single moment you spend reading my blog!  :)
