Loonie Stampers Challenge #13

Welcome to Loonie Stampers Challenge #13. This week's color selection was made by the Lovely Wendy! She was even kind enough to reference the PTI colors to the SU colors. I will note that we had some discussion on the new PTI colors matching a bit better to the SU colors. I say...whatever use what you got! I LOVE this color combo. WTG Wendy!!

This week I chose to use a non Papertrey Set to stamp with. What can I say, I just could NOT help myself.

So as not to disappoint, here is the inside also complete with a bit of snow. I realize it will get a little smooched but it actually smooches nicely. (is smooches a real word? OK whatever all you grammar freaks beware of this post cuz I don't care! LOL)

Oh one final note. I used my heat gun to dry the puffy. I like the real looking results for snow!
