Our nights have been getting cooler but thankfully not cool enough for snow yet. However, those Jingle Belles wanted us to be in a snowy-frame of mind and add snow, in any form, to our cards. So here's a family of Flakes surrounded by flakes wishing Joy.

Jingle Belles - Dashing Through the Snow
I took these photos at the same time in the same place and see how the camera changes that wood background depending on the color of the card background. It's frustrating at times and I really should get out one of my lightboxes but I'm playing Goldilocks as one is too big and the other is too small and I thought this natural lighting would be just right. No porridge for me!
The snowman were cut from a portion of a larger stamp by Newton's Nook - Frozen Fellowship. The JOY die is from Ellen Hutson, and I don't know the source of the snowflake die at this time. I used white glitter paper for that and wish I would have remembered the tip from my stamping friend LeAnne about peeling the backing off the glitter paper before die cutting it. It was much easier to punch out that die on the second one after I had spent so much time with an exacto knife on the first when it didn't completely punch through. I stamped some additional snowflakes onto the card base in VersaMark ink. The little glitter snowflakes are the punchouts from the snowflake die.
I've really got to get back up into the stamp cave and tidy up, but I think I'll visit some of the other snowy contributions to the Jingle Belles first. You can join in by clicking here.
