Snowball Fight and Two Lucky Winners

Good morning everyone and a very happy Sunday! I don't know about you, but I'm so glad all the hoopla is OVER and life resumes its normal pace!!!
I created this card for FRIDAY SKETCHERS #135, utilizing the wonderful sketch provided by the incredibly talented INGE.
This wonderful Papilio image was a Christmas gift from my dear friend, Jacque.
I love, love it....thank you so much!!!!
I used papers from BoBunny's Midnight Frost collection and the lace is from Webster's Pages. I also used lots of Stardust Stickles. The image is colored with copics.

TWO WINNERS!!!!!! I drew the names from the Vintage Card comments section and the winners of a $50 shopping spree at Diana's Magnolia-licious store are:


CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please email me at for details.
