Paper Sweeties October Release Countdown!

Hello there!

Today is Release Countdown for Paper Sweeties!  Tomorrow is the day that you will be able to purchase *new* stamps/dies!  Today, I am featuring the dies Sweet Cuts-Snow Friends!  They coordinate with a previously released stamp set Snow Friends.(snowman and snow flakes).

Just as soon as I stamped the sentiment, which is from the stamp set Let it Snow, I thought ut-oh I don't want to bring on the snow...hehehe!  Even my husband remarked..."It will be your fault if we have a harsh winter...yikes!":-)  People are already talking about how the Farmer's Almanac is predicting another cold snowy winter.  And, then I thought well maybe they aren't accurate.  A friend told me it is 80% accurate.  But, I still have hope that we won't have a winter like we did last year.  Anyways, enough of weather and onto my card.

I started with a white card base and paired it with DCWV and Bazzill papers.  The birds are from the stamp set Home Tweet Home and I used the coordinating die.  The fence is also from the same set.  The snow hills are from the die set Thanks Snow Much.  The ribbon Frosting, sequins Frosting, twine Blueberry, and Rusty Jingle Bells are also from Paper Sweeties.

Would you like to see more inspiration?  Yes, of course you do!  Please follow along with the list below...
