Thumpity, thump, thump...

Thumpity, thump, thump....



(Please scroll down for more of today's blog posts.)


Look at Frosty go! And yes, after a few hours of playing in the snow, you must have a cup of cocoa!



This measures 4..25 x 5.5 inches...a standard card size. All this needed was a candy cane tucked into the bow. (Use your imaginations please!)

Untie the gorgeous MFP Black gingham ribbon and you have plenty of room for a sentiment or note!

Have a snowy good time along the blog hop today. I'll stay here with a cup of cocoa and marshmellows! hehe.
