Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

Hi, everyone! Before I get to today's card. I have a Valentine story to share.

He Said, She Said

I don't even remember what the commercial was advertising, It showed a man and a woman and included the line, "She makes the good times great." I turned to hubby and asked, "So, do I make your good times great?" Hubby got that smirk of his and, without missing a beat said, "You make the great times good. Then he laughed that laugh of his.

Yep, that's my guy. I guess I should add that we've been married 32 years, he surprised me with chocolate-covered strawberries and fudge from a favorite candy shop, makes me laugh at least ten times a day... and I can count on one hand the number of times I've had to pump my own gasoline in the last five years. Not much for romance, but quite a guy.

Today's Card: Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

I'm here with a card for the Jingle Belles' Let the Flakes Fall Where They May Challenge. Seemed like a perfect time to pull out some Polar Pals and craft away.  :)

Doodlebug Polar Pals dp and coordinating stickers; Simon Says Stamp cardstock
Stampin' Up! stitched square dies and itty banner punch
silver edging on blue banner: heat embossed with Versamark pen and Recollections silver powder
adhesives: Scotch ATG; foam backing; Zots glue dots
I sometimes struggle combining various patterns, but this seemed to come together pretty easily. Surprisingly so since there are five different patterns here -- and a sentiment square cut from a sixth paper.  :)

Love these fun, cheery colors and playful sentiment. Think this little card will be going to Send a Smile 4 Kids.  :)

Parting Thoughts

There's a Mardi-Gras-inspired Celebration Challenge going on over at Words 2 Craft By. Bobbi's come up with a great quote and is offering up a cute MFT stamp set as a prize. You have until March 1 to play along.

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
