Winter and Christmas cards are on my mind!!! Yes, its a sad truth, but i have to start building up my stash and their are lots of goodies to play with!! Today i'm sharing a The Alley Way Stamps card that features one of this months new sets Snow Daze! I am linking this card up to Inkspirational Challenge - Purple with Grey/Silver (which is very hard to photograph!!! hehe!!!

I started with dark purple card stock (i swear its purple!!!) and stamped a few snowflakes from the Snow Daze stamp set in versamark ink. I then embossed the snowflakes with silver embossing powder. Then i cut some white cardstock with a PTI die to create my snow drifts. I added one layer directly to the purple card base and the other shorter one with foam tape.

Next i stamped two snowmen from the TAWS Chill Out set on white card stock, then again on the purple and some dark grey. I paper pieced the scarfs, ear muffs and hat with the purple and grey, then colored the had black.

I added the snowman to my card with foam dots and then found the grey Hi bubble in my 'extra' stash. I love it when stuff you have already matches!! I also added the bubble with foam tape!!
