Cooking With Cricut Challenge: Snow Fun!

Our challenge this week at Cooking With Cricut was to use any winter time outdoor activity, snowmen, sledding, etc., in our project. 

Now, I have a confession to make . . . I'm a Florida girl -- born and bred.  Heck, I'm a third generation Floridian!  I've only been in real snow once in my life and that resulted in a sprained neck and a concussion (ice and ski lifts don't mix).  I can count on one hand the number of times we've had "snow" in North central Florida in my 45 years of living.  

Having said all of that . . .  I have to admit --I LOVE Snowmen!  But down here in the deep South, we don't see much of that white, cold stuff that they are made from.  So my card for this week's challenge features a Snowman -- Florida-style!

"Mr. Sandman, send me a dream . . ."

Our happy and tanned snowman is wearing a visor and shades, has liberally applied his SPF30 sunscreen and has settled down to enjoy his winter vacation!

The card is a top-fold and measures 8 1/2" wide by 5 1/2" tall.  The base card is by Bazzill and is called "Splash."

Cartridges used:

Doodlecharms - Snowman (cut at 4 1/2" tall).

Create-A-Critter -  Starfish (cut at 3/4" wide); crab (cut at 1 3/4" tall); sun (cut at 2 1/2" tall), "sunny" (cut at 1 3/8" tall), cloud (cut at 1 1/4" tall), and the sand (cut at 8 7/8" wide)

Everyday Paper Dolls - Sunglasses (cut at 1/2" tall), lotion bottle (cut at 1 3/8" tall) and the towel (cut at 1 7/8" tall).

His driftwood nose was cut free-hand.  The alphabet stickers are from making memories ~ Alpha Asphalt and are 7/16" tall.  The sentiment on the front of the card is from Stampin' Up (copyright 2001).
