IC211, ssnotime118, SSCC17, OCC Challenge - Let it snow.....!!!

Hello everyone and happy weekend!!!

Our Miriam loved all your birthday wishes...and she wanted me to tell you *thank you*!!! She is also feeling much better - thank goodness!!!

Here is a photo of my little 5 year old princess.........We have a *Ledlow Birthday Tradition* - the lucky birthday kiddo is always having a quick *Birthday Party* in the morning and gets to open the presents from the family!!! Can you tell Mimi is having a good time???






















Moving on to the OCC Challenge - Jenny is challenging us to add *Snowflakes or Snow* to our cards/projects!!!

I combined my card with the Stampin' Sister Challenge - Bling it up, ssnotime118 - CAS Snow and this weeks IC211 - Fabulous Stationary. I chose this beautiful *Powder Red* Note Card for my inspiration.





















I thought this beautiful snowflake Peace & Joy Set from Our Daily Bread Designs would be perfect for it!!!

The snowflakes were inked in Real Red and I bedazzled them with Glitter. Here is a closer look.........

Hope you have time to play along??? Make sure to stop by the OCC Blog to see all the Samples from the Team!!!

Have a fabulous weekend and if you live in the middle of the crazy *East Coast* snowstorm...stay safe!!! I'm taking my oldest daughter and some of her girl friends ice skating today.... :) !!!

Silke, I swear I say the same thing to you every time I comment! I'm a person of few words, sorry! This is beautiful! I love the diagonal stripes...they give a candy cane feel. I can tell there is glitter on the snowflakes so I know it's even prettier than the photo can capture. Love the sentiment and bow! It's all gorgeous!
