Felt Flurries Favorites

Stampin up little felt flurries

There's something exciting for me about the "chaos" of a major snowstorm.  No school for my daughter today.  A breathtaking blanket of white. Not a peep from a snow plow until late this afternoon.  My husband, daughter and I were hostages in our own home for the last 24 hours.  We survived with a fire and an old movie . . . quite delightful.

As I wrap up my holiday card production line, I want to share some of my favorite card ideas.  Today's card is especially easy and the PERFECT TOUCH comes from Stampin' Up!'s Little Felt Flurries (113697).

  1. These are lovely! The felt flurries are the perfect touch and I love the wide ribbon! It has been stormy here and in flash flood warning. Wish it was snow like you! Enjoy it for me! Hugs, Monica

  2. You used the felt snowflakes beautifully. They are my fave new accessory.

    Funny what you said about snow, I thought the same thing yesterday. I was sitting at home and everything was quiet. I really enjoy a good snowstorm – as long as I’m inside! Driving to work this morning was insane! It took me two hours to get there. Urgh!

    Enjoy your day!
