Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Those were my thoughts when the weather temperatures dropped to below 0 deg Celcius. I was Monday in Boston and could not believe me thinking The Great White North is warmer than Massachusetts. On a great note, this week marks my last business travel for this year ;)

Can't wait to be back later, since I have my huge holiday production to still work on. In the meantime, here is a Waltzingmouse Sketch contribution with a wee, little twist - har har.

I hear you guys groaning. I thought it was punny way to share the current wee Memories challenge with you. And here the actual sketch from Waltzingmouse.

When I first saw this sketch, my brain associated Pokémon ball. I could not get this image out of my head. Thankfully the wee Memories sketch gave me something new to focus on and I finally moved on to "cold" and "snow." Before you know it, I had snowflakes on the mind!

Let It Snow
Stamps: (Compliments of the Season) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Preppie Pack - Blue) Bazzill; (Basic Card Stock - White) Recollections
Ink: (Momento - True Black) Tsukineko;
Embellishments: (Stickles - Diamond, Perfect Pearls Metallic - Perfect Pearl) Ranger; (Nestabilities - Standard Circle SM, Classic Scalloped Circles SM) 

My Stickles were lined up like little toy soldiers on my desk from a few cards ago, and I decided to put the Diamond Stickles to use. The white section was cut into a fun wave to simulate a mountain of snow. And I am so in love with the little flourish scrolls!

Let It Snow

In the mean time, I really pray and hope it does not snow on Friday, because I do want to make it home. Last business trip, my 5p flight was cancelled and I was chillin' (quite literally) at the airport until the (delayed) 9:30pm-ish flight departed at 20 minutes past the hour. 

Needless to say, I really need every waking and free moment at my crafting sweat shop desk. After all, the holidays are fast approaching...Anyone else feeling the home stretch?

Love the unique curve on your card -- super cute. And I think you need to post a pic of a pokemon ball for those of us who like to shun those memories. ;-)
