Christmas at Sweet Stampin' ... "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!"

Sadly my house doesn't actually have a working fire and we so need it.  The weather here in the South of England truly has been frightful with high winds and the kind of rain that comes at you horizontally and leaves you battered as well as cold and drenched.
With only one sleep to go before the big day, and having just returned from seeing Elton John in Prague, today is going to be manic so I thought I would post my card now for
where our challenge is
and we are lucky enough to be sponsored by
the lovely Emma at
Flat Friends

Once I had worked out what I wanted to do, this card was a very easy make. My trees were stamped twice (in black and then white) over my snowy 'ground' using this wonderful Memory Box die which I am SOOOOO pleased I bought and with which I intend to make many many more cards for next Christmas! The sleigh is a Cheery Lynn die cut and the moon is just white inked onto the dark background.  I added a red nose to the lead reindeer and glittered snow into the sky.

And this card is very indicative of what I want to say to you today.

Come and join the Cassettes with your final snowy Christmas makes this month and have a
