Another early Christmas card

What about this wind then?? I was very glad of my foam earplugs last night - probably would have had trouble sleeping otherwise as the wind was howling around us all night :o)
This should be my day off but I've just been asked to work this afternoon to cover for a sick colleague so before I have to go and get myself organised here is a card I have created for a bunch of different challenges - see below. I used one of my own digi stamps, Buttons Snowman available from Cardmadfairy's Creations and coloured him to work with some of my favourite Christmas backing paper which came from PaperArtsy last year - I've been looking to see if they have any new papers for Christmas 2011 but there's no sign of anything so far. The snowflake is a Marianne's Creatables die and the sentiment is from Personal Impressions.

These are the challenges I was using for my inspiration:
Christmas Inspirations - Glitter 
I Did It Creations - Anything Goes
Catch The Bug - Punches or Dies
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - Swirls
Make it Monday - Always anything goes 
Woodware USA - Happy Holidays
Inspire Me Fridays - Always anything goes
Totally Papercrafts - Cute with buttons
Heart Song Inspirations - Glitter and/or Chipboard



Oh, this is another of your beauties! Thanks for joining at Christmas Inspirations challenges.

Wow....lovely lovely sweet wintery card. Yes, beautiful die and DP. I'll need to check them out. Curious about the howling wind. Is this normal for your area during this time of year? Thank you for joining us and sharing this adorable snowman card with Catch the Bug the week.
