Baby It's Cold Again

Happy Thursday! Our weather cannot make up it's mind. One day it's 60 degrees and the next day we are back in the 20s. This is the first year in a very long time that Tom and I have both had colds. Usually we get through the winter without getting sick. Maybe it's because we have more exposure to our daughter and SIL who always seem to be sick or the twins who catch it from them. Either way, the weather isn't helping with that.
So since we are back to the deep freeze I thought of Christmas and decided that I need to work more on that so I get a head start.

I used the I {Heart} Sketches with a Twist challenge as inspiration for this card. Their twist is "snowy day" so I used one of Faith's little snowman as my image.
The embossed background is the Argyle EF. The snowflake paper is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles (a scrap from my box). The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut with MFT Stitched Circles. The Merry Christmas die cut is also cut from a scrap from my box from the Paper Smooches die. I added some Doodle Twine and some paper mache hearts to finish off the card.
I am entering these challenges:

My day started out very early since I had an appointment at 8 am but it motivated me to get moving today. So I've gotten several things done including dinner cooked this morning as I have to watch the twins at 3:30 pm this afternoon. So I am hoping to get some crafty time in before I have to go. Have a wonderful day!
