Friends are the best part of Christmas

Christmas is 3 weeks away. WHAT?  How did that happen?  I spent the day yesterday wrapping my gifts since it rained all day anyway. I know the mountains got 2-3" of snow but we got just rain (I'm near Concord, NC)

I love ALL snowmen stamps!!  This is an oldie but goodie from Amuse ArtStamps, back when they came wood mounted.  The sentiment is by Unity Stamp Company.

When it Rains It Pours but That's Ok, I love rainbows

When I saw this challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies "Whatever the Weather", I knew right away which stamp I was going to use.  I got this stamp from the West Springfield, MA stamp convention when I went this past June. Its from Technique Junkies. I colored the background with my Tombow markers and water. This was my favorite booth at the whole stamp show. They have so many "different" and "unique" stamps. I just love them. I saw on their website they will be coming to the stamp convention in Columbia, SC in Feb so I will have to definitely try to make it since its only a 2 hour drive for me. I haven't been to that show in years but if I remember right, it has snowed the past couple of years and this FL girl cannot drive in any ice or snow for that matter. 

You Light the Candles, I'll get the Fire Extinguisher

I'm still needing some birthday cards for January so I thought this one was hilarious!

I love ALL snowmen stamps. That is one of my weaknesses. Snowmen stamps!!  I've had this snowman stamp for quite awhile. Its by Purple Onion Designs. I love all of their stamps!!

For the songbook that the middle snowman is holding, I googled "Silent Night" and printed off this image of the words and I paper pieced it to the book. I used Stampin Up glitter for the snow.

The sentiment stamp is an oldie but goody from Amuse ArtStamps (when they were still wood stamps).

I am entering the following challenges for this card:
