Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge

If you enjoy challenges like I do, today is the time for another SPARKS challenge at Paper Smooches. 
 This is the SPARKS challenge, is it cute!!!
I realize that the SPARKS challenge photo is rather Christmas related and I was going to go in that direction but then I created this card and it so fit! The colors are exact.
 I used some Crate Papers for this, I couldn't believe how fitting they are to a DAD theme and to go along wtih this adorable card stamp by Paper Smooches. 
I have another card I want to share too using Paper Smooches stamps. I used some digital Cosmo Cricket papers for the card.  I just printed out small pieces of these two patterns.  I cut around some of the swirls to look like swirling snow.  The card base is cut with my Art Philosophy Close to My Heart Cricut cartridge.  I love that I could cut the card base and then two label shapes that are a perfect fit and matted just right.  
 I love this little snowman stamp.  I used mini buttons on him. 
And, to share some photos...
 Our family took a couple days to go find snow.  We are all Southern Californian's so we had to drive to play in the snow.  We went up to Big Bear Lake. Of course, we had to build a snowman!
 This is our youngest grandsons first "snow" experience. Talk about excited!
This is the finished guy.  Kind of a bear with a mohawk!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Oh how I love these cards! I agree on your first card, definitely showcases those colors so well. And how fun to go find some snow. I want snow here. Of course, the year I want it will be the year I'll have to drive somewhere. Which won't be far... :)
