Snow Family...Cupcake Inspiration Challenges #339~Let It Snow, 4 Crafty Chicks #275~winter

Hello,

How swiftly the December days are passing...and I'm still making Christmas cards!  Of course, despite being late and perhaps immensely a teensy bit panicked some cards will be late in doing so (my first batch went to my mom), I'm loving every. single. minute. of creating them.  Still, I need to get a move on....

Today, we Cupcake gals are inviting you to join us in Cupcake Inspiration Challenges #339~Let It Snow, with this delicate-snowflake-decorated cupcake to serve entice you.  Almost too pretty to eat...well, for a minute or two...


Our sponsor is Sparkle N Sprinkle, who generously provided us with digital images to work with, as well as $15 gift certificate towards digis for this week's winner.
My card features Snow Family...a grandma and grand-daughter snowman. Oops...should that be snowpeople?  Snowgrandma and snow granddaughter?  Whatever the case, they make a darling twosome, so I coloured them up with the soft blues and pinks from the inspiration photo, and let them be, as they so deserve to be, the stars of the stage.  The little one, carrying a heart...incredible sweetness!  


Your turn; c'mon and play along!  Looking forward to a 'blizzard' of 'snow' inspired cards in the gallery!

I'm also joining at:

4 Crafty Chicks #275~Winter

Thank you for spending some time with me; wishing you a wonderful day!

Awwww, this is so sweet! Well done, Ms. C! I really like the soft colors. Non traditional, but very effective. Hey, don't panic! You are making cards and the recipients will be so appreciative of your efforts for your cards look wonderful!

I love the idea of Grandma and Granddaughter snow girls! Beautiful coloring and darling design, Carol...Love it to pieces!
Try not to stress sending cards off a little bit late...I think it's fun to get cards after Christmas day, but maybe that's just little ol' me!

I love those sweet grand snowpeople done in pink and blue, Carol. I'm so glad I found a box of leftover cards from last year or I'd be frantic about now. I'm beginning my stash for next year already. You'll get yours done.
