HIMCR Challenge # 134 - Something for/about a loved one

Happy Saturday my crafting friends. How was your week?  Mine flew buy and before I knew it, it was time to get this card posted for this week's challenge at Hiding in My Craft Room.  This week's challenge # 134 is to make a project for a loved one or about a loved one.  Our sponsor this week was Template Dreams and let me tell you that it was hard to choose one kit to work with because they have so many beautiful kits with gorgeous papers and elements.  Take a moment after reading this post and go visit their website, you won't be disappointed.  Template Dreams are also sponsoring this week's prize, which is a $5 gift certificate for one lucky winner.

Now for my card ...

I used their Snow Fun kit.  It has pretty winter papers and fun snow images such as penguins, snowflakes, borders and many others. I decided to put my little rascal penguin in a snow globe :-)

I added a snowflake border, snowflake corner and scattered a few snowflakes about.  By the time I was done, I wanted to grab a cup of hot cocoa :-)

In keeping with my snowflake theme, I added a snowflake border to the inside and scattered another few snowflakes about for good measure :-)
So, now that you have seen my card, do you have someone special in mind?  Go ahead and make a project for them to show them how much you care.  Then link it up to our challenge # 134 at Hiding in My Craft Room and you could be the lucky winner.  Can't wait to see what you all come up with.
