Snow Family!!

With Christmas around the corner, I haven't had much time to craft :( , or post anything.
It's just that time of year, when everyone is busy getting ready for the holidays. I still have
some shopping to do, and of course, I'm clueless as what to get my own kids!

I just returned from Las Vegas a few days ago where, for me, the weather was so lovely,
now, I'm back here in Edmonton, where there is snow, high winds and cold weather.
So, I guess it's just right to have most of the challenges wanting snow as there theme.

I decided to make another shaker card, I just love them, they are so easy to make and fun to get or play with!!

I'm entering this card into:
Shelly's Images - Snow Theme
Designed2delight - Snow Theme
Paper Sundaes - Sundae Bar
