Snowmen and women

Pull out your hat and mittens, it's a bit cold over here in blogland.  The snowmen (and woman) are out in force for today's post.  I sold this card and got another order for the "same" card (which I seriously can't ever do) so I decided to go a challenge hopping to find inspiration and ended up with the Craft's Meow sketch and the Ribbon Carousel's color challenge (red/kraft/brown and some sort of ribbon).


And then I decided since I had the fun Lawn Fawn Making Frosty Friends out that I'd use them for my tag order (which was 2 boys and 2 girls), so with some help from some fun paper and a few more challenges, I made some tags.


This one works for the Waltzingmouse tag challenge. 

 


This one was inspired by the Moxie Fab World Get Inspired by the Kitchen challenge.


And last, but not least, I had so much fun with the Lawn Fawn/May Arts week that I decided to use this fabulous May Arts ribbon with this tag.  I've also played along with the CAS-ual Friday tic-tac-toe challenge and done scallops-polka dots and pink (I know, be proud!).
