Snowy Wishes and a challenge too!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!  We are having our daughter's 5th Birthday party
at our house this afternoon and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for no rain. 
We are having a special guest, a miniature horse. It's been soo hard
keeping this a secret from her for the past few weeks.  She really loves horses (right now) so
when a friend said they would bring Shorty over for her party, we took her up on it!  Thanks Rusty!

For today's cards, I used my new stamp set, Snowy Wishes from Wilson Designs.
Let me tell you.....Kim's set stamps so beautifully! 
My cards fit the challenge over at Wee Memories this week:  "Cute Holiday".



I did use some of that fun new paper from PTI, Distressed Dots, and paper pieced the
cute snowman's scarf!  Kim has included so many cute accessories for the snowman.  It's
hard to choose!  Don't you just love the snow?  I used some Sparkly Fluff.....it is so fun!


My second card is a mini 3x3 card using just the branch and birdie from this set.
Kim included several sizes of sentiment fonts and I thought this one was perfect for a 3x3 card!
If you look real close, I did stamp some snowflakes on the panel with my branch.  I didn't
realize that I grabbed my "old" version of Spring Rain ink.


This card was super quick and will be perfect to tuck in a holiday treat this season.


Gotta run for now......lots of party decorating to do!
Thanks so much for visiting!
