Welcome Winters @ Freshly Brewed Challenges

Hi Crafters,

Hope you are on your way for the Thanksgiving preparations! Yeah, I can smell the aroma of cookies and freshly baked breads & pies; boiling soups and the roasted Turkey :)!! Wow!!

Wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. 
Have a nicest time with your family & freinds. And Happy shopping on Friday..lolzz

I guess its time to welcome another season of the year - the Winters!! I know many of us dreaded this season {esp those who receive lots of snowfall at their places :(}. I love snow, the white flurries, ground covered all white; but I hate when we have to shovel our driveway and clean the cars and then driving through slippery roads!! {chills} :((.

But, on a holiday node, we at Freshly Brewed Challenges want you to welcome the season with your Christmas or Winter Theme Cards. So, thrill us this week with some white flurrs or some blings :). And drop by to check out the Freshly Brewed Design Store, Heather is having a SALE on all digis and rubber stamps till Nov. 30th!!

Here is my card for this week's theme:


Here is another look:

I used whistlin' snowflakes image from Fresh Brewed Designs and printed it thrice in different sizes. Distressed the CS with blue and silver inks. Used gel pens, pencil colors and markers to color the images. the rhinestones on the cap are from Pizzazz Aplenty.
Have you seen that Red snowflake embossed sheet? Yes, I got my first crafting tool - Pink Cuttlebug :D (a surprise gift from my hubby;)} And I so enjoy using all the folders and different styles). Still need to explore it fully :). Here it is :)
