This week's House Mouse challenge "Let it Snow," for me, brings back many happy memories of the cold weather and snow fun as a child. Growing up in snow country, the most important thing to check for when it began snowing was to see if the snow could pack and roll to form big balls to make a snowman. And so, I fashioned these little house mouse guys to frolick in the meadow with plans to make a snowman. As you will note, there is one a little more serious about the job at hand. I hope some of you out there have an opportunity to play in the snow this winter. As for me, all I can do is dream about a "White Christmas."

Snowflake punch: Emagination
Phrase: Aunty Amy (Embossing Arts)
RS Snowflakes (background) Hero Arts
Snowflake foreground: Cuttlebug
Tree: Sizzix
Snowballs: one from felt, others mottled w/embossing powder and soft edged w/Memories Midnight Blue

This is ADORABLE!!!! How clever of you to have them, or should I say him, making a snowman:o) It reminds me of me and my younger brothers playing in the snow; and just like your card, two of us were serious while one was too busy goofing off. Of course, he was the first to take credit for the end product. Hahaha!!! Such fun times!!! I also love the embossed snowflakes in the background. I am terrible with embossing powder, so I can never get it to look as great as yours. Wanna come to NC and give me some lessons?:o)

I am so happy you were able to play in the snow with the rest of us!!! I always love to see your awesome creations!!!
