613 Avenue Create and Winter Time!

So excited to be announcing that I have joined the girls
in the neighborhood at 

613 Avenue Create!


Thank you, Chana and Kathi, for the invitation; and a huge thank you to the DT for such a warm welcome. 

Well it is Winter Time and at my house there is several inches of snow on the ground with more on the way, so let's put on our slippers and snuggle up with a warm blanket. The theme for this challenge is

Anything Goes w/ an optional twist - The Colors, Sights and Sounds of Winter.

And what would winter be without a Snowman. 

 

I don't know about you, but I received some wonderful gifts for Christmas! Some of those gifts could use a nice Thank You. So how about giving this Snowman Gift Box filled with chocolates or another little treat to that someone special who made your Christmas so merry & bright!

The box comes from SVG Cut's Christmas Open House kit and stands 6" tall. The cardstock used for this project is both Papertrey Ink and American Craft. The DP that makes up the band around the hat is Authentique - Seasons. All the embellishments were things I dug out of my stash.













Please stop by 613 Avenue Create to see the rest of the Design Team's inspiration and to link up your card.

Thanks for dropping by! But before you leave, please become a follower. I am giving away some blog candy when I reach 100 followers. See the top right side of my blog for more details.
