White as Snow

Welcome to another Cut It Up Challenge!  This week we are playing with the theme White as Snow (with a touch of color).  I know some of you out there on East Coast and parts of Canada are BURRIED in snow. Hopefully you are enjoying it a little?  For those of us that aren't in the snowy parts of the world, this challenge gives us all a chance to play with the fluffy white stuff. :)

You know how the challenge works right?  Just follow the CIU blog, make a new creation and include a die cut and link it up.  As my kiddo says, "easy-peasy lemon-squeezy!"  Be sure head over to CIU to check out the full rules and the other ladies inspiration.  Oh and did I mention the prize?  Yep, there is a $20 gift certificate from Cute as a Button up for grabs!  Come on over and play!

Before you go I want to share my creation with you.  I made a white on white card using a SU! snowflake embossing folder and the "hello" die from Simon Says Stamp.  Now you may have noticed that I took the "touch of color" very literally.  There is a little bit of silver twine tied around my white ribbon on the edge, do you see it?  Originally I intended to add more color, but I liked the way this looked as is, so I decided to stop there.

Question of the Day time!  I gotta know, what is your favorite thing to do in the snow?  Me.... I've done some skiing (I like that but don't own the gear), I've snowboarded (OK, but I am kinda a wuss), I enjoyed making snow caves and tunnels as a kid and I got some new snowshoes for Christmas but haven't had the opportunity to use them yet (no snow here), so that leaves my favorite thing, which is sledding!  I know there are things I am missing like snowball fights and snow angles, etc., so please share your fave.

Thanks for stopping friends!

Your "touch" of silver is the perfect embellishment for this card!
My favorite thing to do in the snow was to make snow angels when I was a kid. Now? Watch it from my window while sitting in front of a fire!! :)

Wonderful card, Katie! The snowflakes and Hello are so eye-catching! My favourite snow activity (aside from staying inside, because I truly am a wuss!), is walking, which I try to do daily. Put on the boots, several layers of clothes, hat, mitts and scarves - and away I go. Cross-country skiing is also on the list, because where go - often Lake Louise - the scenery is spectacular. Happy Saturday!
