It's Going Down to 32 Degrees!

Hello my friends, or should I say Brrrrrrr. . . .   Winter has finally hit the South.  It's down in the low 30's this morning and supposed to stay that way for a few days.  Hopefully then our Winter will be over and we can get on with Spring!  LOL!  Can you tell I'm not crazy about the cold weather.

Today I have a fun CAS card for {Pin}spirational Challenge.  Here first is the photo inspiration for our challenge this week.
Some gorgeous sweaters there.  All ready for the Arctic Blast!  To go along with the theme this week, I created this Winter looking card.
No frills; no fuss this week.

Materials Used:
Image - The Digi Garden - Boy in Winter Clothes
Sentiment - Stamping Up - Holiday Tag Team (Retired)
Cardstock - Stampin Up Old Olive; Stampin Up Real Red; Xpress It Blending Card
Designer Paper -  Stampin Up - I Wish Scrappin Kit
Accessories - Cricut - Paper Lace cartridge; Nestabilities - Labels Four Die; Nestabilities small oval die cut;  Fancy Oval Lacy Ovals Die; corner punch; red trim from my stash

 Our fabulous Sponsor this week is the Digi Garden 

You really need to stop by her store and see what's the latest in Fall/Winter fashions for this upcoming season.

Then ink up your digis or the regular stamps and play along with us this week.  Sure was dardk when he left for his office.
